Di Canio faces tough first test against Blues: The Odds

Chelsea play host to struggling Sunderland and look bankers at 1.36 with Betfred to inflict more misery on he Wearsiders.
The Blues have won 15 of their last 16 Premier League clashes with the Black Cats who come into the game under new manager Paulo Di Canio having won none of their last eight league games(D3 L5).
By stark contrast Rafa Benitez’s men are unbeaten in five matches on their own patch, winning the last four.
It really should be a case of them registering a comfortable success, so who is going to fire them to victory?
Well according to the stats the two players to concentrate on in the goalscorer markets are Fernando Torres and John Terry.
Torres has scored six times against Sunderland in the Premier League, including a double in the last meeting between the two, and they are his joint favourite opponents along with West Ham.
The Spaniard can be backed at 5 with Paddy Power to net the opener, and a standout 2.2 with the same firm to net anytime, and even money (2) with Boylesports to net anytime.
Terry scored his 30th league goal last weekend and  Sunderland are one of just three teams he has scored against three times.
That makes him look a bit of each-way value in the first goalscorer market at 21 with Betfred and Paddy Power.
Over 2.5 goals also looks a rock solid bet at 1.7 with bet365, and in the correct score market I like the look of a 3-0 Chelsea win at odds of 8.5 with Paddy Power.
