It isn’t just about Man City, Arsenal, Chelsea or Liverpool you know…

[dropcap]I[/dropcap]t’s Christmas (almost)…..

So at this stage who wins the Premier League for you? The market says Man City or Chelsea or Arsenal or current leaders Liverpool……

But in the most open of seasons can you not add ‘or Everton’ to that list or even ‘or Newcastle’. Whatever you think of either side the odds are a mile away from the table positions and the odds on Newcastle winning are frankly insulting to them. They are two points clear of Man U yet 50 (FIFTY) times the price.

Before you e-mail or tweet in saying I’ve lost the plot I’m not saying they WILL win just pointing out that the odds are not in kilter with current form.

Big game for Everton if they are to get themselves in contention today. A win would see them move into fourth.

They travel to the Liberty Stadium to take on Swansea who have failed to win any of their 17 league and cup games against Everton (D5, L12).

Worse still, Swansea have failed to score in the four previous Premier League meetings between the sides.

To add to Swansea’s woes they are without goalkeeper Michel Vorm, who underwent knee surgery on Thursday, while winger Nathan Dyer is out with an ankle ligament injury.

Everton at 7/5 doesn’t look too bad in my books. A win today might just see register a reaction from the compilers on the Premier League outright market. But I wouldn’t bet on it.
