Match Preview

Stoke City

Stoke City are currently 10th in the table with 29 points, a home record of W5-D5-L0, making them the only unbeaten team at home this season. The team is also the only club that hasn’t conceded a goal from outside the box this season. These two stats make Stoke City an extremely tough opponent and Chelsea will not have it easy on Britannia Stadium. Stoke City does not shine with great strikers, but with tactics from set pieces, as 57% of their goals have come from there. This is also the league’s highest. The team posses a great conversion ratio, as it has fired the fewest shots on target this season (64) and yet sits in the middle of the table. One of the most certain bets for this match should be the Under 2.5 Goals betting market priced @ 1.72. Seven of the eleven games between Chelsea and Stoke have ended Under 2.5 Goals including all in the past 5 years. This should be your banker for Saturday.

Chelsea

Chelsea have descended to the 4th position after the embarrassing loss to QPR on Stamford Bridge. The team currently has 38 points, one less than Tottenham and an away record of W6-D2-L2, and will face an opponent to which they managed to win the last 2 games, with the minimal 1-0. This season’s game on Stamford Bridge was quite tough as Chelsea managed to score very late in the 86th minute. Demba Ba is now part of Chelsea, and has managed to score in his debut against Southampton. The odds for Chelsea to win this match are @ 1.90 but despite their class, the home field advantage of Stoke City and their defensive play style have proven to be every teams nightmare as nobody has managed to go home with the 3 points from Britannia Stadium. The draw looks very tempting with odds @ 3.40, but your bet should Under 2.5 Goals @ 1.72 as the last 4 games between both teams have saw only 4 goals.

Verdict

We love stats and we always rely on them. The last 4 games between both teams have seen just 4 goals and the last 6 no more than 2 per games. Therefore we suggest you take the Under 2.5 Goals @ 1.72 with bet365.

While Chelsea is the favorite for this match, Stoke City is still unbeaten at home. We believe the draw is worth backing here @ 3.40 with bet365.
