Leaders 12-1 for Premier League record

CHELSEA are seven points clear at the top of the Premier League and Antonio Conte’s side could yet break the points record set by the Blues under Jose Mourinho in the 2004-05 season.

The leaders will need to win all seven remaining fixtures to eclipse their own previous best and bet365 are offering 12-1 Chelsea finish the season in perfect fashion.

Conte’s side travel to Manchester United on Sunday to take on former boss Mourinho before a home date with Southampton and trip to Everton.

Should Chelsea negotiate those three without failure it becomes much easier with a trip to West Brom and three home fixtures against Middlesbrough, Watford and Sunderland on the final day.

Former Chelsea midfielder Juan Mata won’t feature at Old Trafford after United announced the Spanish playmaker would miss the remainder of the season following groin surgery.

It’s a game United need to win if they want to stay in the fight for a top-four finish but the Europa League offers a more realistic route back into the Champions League.

United are 5-4 to win the Europa League after Thursday’s 1-1 draw at Anderlecht in their quarter-final first leg.

Coventry were relegated from Sky Bet League One  following a 1-1 home draw with Charlton.  The Sky Blues had been 12-1 shots ante-post for the drop.
