Chelsea are 1.4 shots to beat Stoke this weekend and everything suggests they will do just that.
With AVB now gone it’s time for the Blues to put move on and start winning on a regular basis, and the stats suggest this is the perfect opportunity for them.
They have won seven and lost none of the last nine games against Stoke in all competitions, and lost just one of their last seven home games (W4, D2).
Throw in the fact that the visitors have won just four of their last 23 away games in the PL and have never drawn an away game in London in the top flight and you can see why Chelsea should win with the minimum of fuss.
Another plus as far as Chelsea is concerned is that no Premier League side has stopped them scoring at home since Liverpool back in February 2011.
So with a win for Chelsea looking a near certainty the question is who will open the scoring and how many will they put past the Potters.
Didier Droga is the type of striker who will cause the Stoke defence all sorts of problems, and he appeals most to bag the first at 5 with bet365 and Boylesports.
He is also a 2.05 chance to score anytime with bet365 and that looks good value given that most firms go odds-on.
I fancy Chelsea to win this with a bit to spare, and 3-1 appeals in the correct score market 13 with bet365 and Boylesports.
