It has been billed as the Billionaire’s derby in some quarters, and if Man City have enough players to field a full 11 then we could be in for quite a game, but one online betting company in particular are offering one of those money-back deals which everyone loves to jump on.
Bodog.co.uk have stated that they will refund all first goalscorer bets if and English player scores a hat trick in tomorrow’s lunch-time kick off, and it’s worth a punt. Not even including City’s goalkeeper, or the raft of injuries affecting their squad, they’ve got five English players who could be in the race in the shape of Micah Richards, James Milner, Shaun Wright-Phillips, Adam Johnson, and Gareth Barry, with Chelsea possessing three in the shape of Ashley Cole, John Terry, and exciting youngster Daniel Sturridge.
If you like the sound of it, and you reckon one of those eight might manage a hat-trick, then wager all your money on someone a bit out there to score the first goal. Never know, it might come off anyway.
