Paddy Power sweating after early Chelsea are Champions payout

Paddy Power are sweating on the prospect of a £500,000 cock-up after Paul Scholes’ last minute winning goal in the Manchester Derby and Spurs unexpected 2-1 win over League leaders Chelsea has thrown the title race open again.

Last week, the Irish bookmaker decided that the English Premier League title was done and dusted and paid out £500,000 to punters that had backed the Blues to win the league.


With the topsy-turvy season taking yet another twist Chelsea’s previous four point lead has been cut to one and Carlos Ancelotti’s team are now 8/11 from 1/7 to win the title with United breathing down their necks at 5/4.

Paddy Power said: "Now we now exactly what Fergie meant by 'squeaky bum time'! At 2.30 on Saturday Chelsea's grip on the title looked a little firmer but then Paul Scholes’ late winner for Manchester United and Chelsea's own defeat at Spurs changed everything but we're punters at heart and will be experiencing, if not exactly enjoying, the same nerves of the title run-in all the way to the line just like our customers."


8/13 Chelsea
5/4 Man Utd
