Chelsea play host to table toppers Manchester City on Monday night, and the in-form Blues look a bit of value at 2.5 with bet365 to beat Roberto Mancini’s City slickers.
The Blues triumphed 2-0 in this fixture back in March and come into the game on back of arguably their best performance of the season.
They looked back to their clinical and organised best when trouncing Valencia 3-0 to secure their place in the last 16 of the Champions League, and had previously proved far too strong for Newcastle when registering a 3-0 victory over the Magpies at St James’ when last seen in Premiership action.
Andre Villas-Boas seems to have turned things round, and this promises to be a great game filled with goals – despite the fact that in recent years City have struggled to score at Stamford Bridge.
They have actually have failed find the back of the net in eight of their last nine league visits to London, but they are a different proposition now and come into this unbeaten in their last eight PL away games (won six).
So given that Chelsea have only managed to keep one clean sheet in their last 8 games at the Bridge but have also not found it difficult to find the target at the other end of the pitch, backing both sides to score looks a cracking bet at 1.62 with bet365 and Betfred.
I actually do think that Chelsea have the players to edge this, and my idea of the outcome is a 2-1 win which can be backed at 8.5 with Betfred.
It may well be a late, late show though as AVB’s men have scored a 90th minutes goal in three of their last four home Premier League games against the Citizens.
I also like the look of Drogba at 7.5 with Betfred to score first.
