Chelsea vs Stoke Betting Tips and Predictions
Chelsea take on Stoke City looking to extend their impressive run of form against Mark Hughes and his team. Earlier in the campaign, the blues were able to get a 4-0 victory over this opponent. Now, Chelsea are aiming for a seventh consecutive victory at home. This match represents the best possible option for Chelsea, as Stoke City have been playing as a relegation material over the last few months. The club has been very poor at the back and have conceded a lot of goals. There is a huge amount of pressure on Mark Hughes in order to deliver positive results, but this may not be the game where he comes up with a great tactical battle.
Hughes will know that facing Chelsea at Stamford Bridge happens to be one of the difficult aspects. Since Stoke have a game against Newcastle a couple of days later, it is better to focus on this game. Hence, Chelsea are available at a very strong price of 1.16 to win the game. Even a draw looks highly unlikely and this is why it is priced at 8.50. Stoke city are rank outsiders to win the match and it is not surprising to see them at 19.00. Since Chelsea are in a very short price, it would make sense to opt for a game that produces less than 2.5 goals from Stoke City. Interestingly, Stoke have been able to score in the last couple of the matches.
Since managing a victory over Tottenham at London in 2014, Stoke city have been unable to win any of the last 16 matches. It is looks highly likely that this record will continue going into the second half of the campaign. Antonio Conte will know that Chelsea must not dropping one point in the Premier league if the team is to end the season on a high.
