The Blues officially hired the former Napoli manager on Saturday but dabblebet still make them outsiders to win the top domestic prize in England

Maurizio Sarri has been confirmed as Chelsea’s new manager after the club officially sacked Antonio Conte on Friday.

The ex-Napoli boss was replaced at the Italian side by former Blues man Carlo Ancelotti in May, leaving the door open for him to join the west London outfit following Conte's departure.

Following Sarri’s appointment, Chelsea are 12/1 (13.0) to win the Premier League with dabblebet after a disappointing fifth-placed finish last season.

Those odds make them joint-fourth favourite to lift the crown, alongside Tottenham. Manchester City unsurprisingly lead the market at just 6/10 (1.60) , with Liverpool ( 5/1 ) and Manchester United ( 6/1 ) also ahead of Chelsea.

Conte’s last act as Blues manager was winning the FA Cup final, and dabblebet offer 13/2 (7.50) that they win it for the sixth time in just 12 years.

Again, City are 9/2 (5.50) favourites with cross-city rivals United, who lost to Chelsea in May’s final, at 6/1 (7.00) .

Last season’s Premier League exploits means the Blues will play in the Europa League in the upcoming season – and they are 6/1 (7.0) market leaders to scoop the second-tier European prize.

They lead a whole host of other teams that boast continental pedigree, including Arsenal ( 13/2 ), Marseille ( 14/1 ), Sevilla ( 14/1 ) and RB Leipzig ( 16/1 ), although it is worth noting that Sarri has never won a European knockout tie.

Finally, Chelsea can be backed at 7/1 (8.0) to win the Carabao Cup for the first time since 2015 and for the sixth time in their history.
