Competition: Premier League
Market: Chelsea to beat Stoke
Odds: 1/6 @ Bet365
The Premier League moves into its final weekend of 2017 with every side looking to pick up three points to move into 2018 in the best form possible. The festive period has been one of some real surprises following the glut of games, and only Manchester City have really been able to fully take advantage of the increase in playing time. With this in mind, Chelsea are still looking to chase City down, and they host Stoke on Saturday.
Chelsea have been in good form recently as they look to keep pace with Manchester United in second. After 20 games they have won 13 times, drawn three games and lost four matches, scoring 34 goals and conceding 14. This has all culminated in the Blues picking up 42 points so far, and they have been able to close the gap between themselves and United to just a point after picking up 10 points in their last five games. However, Chelsea are still some way short of Manchester City at the top, as Pep Guardiola’s side have a 16 point advantage over the reigning champions with 20 games gone.
Stoke, on the other hand, are struggling this season and they need a run of wins to get them out of their slump. Just five wins this season is a paltry return, while they have conceded 41 goals already, showing that they are currently very poor at the back. Mark Hughes men are unbeaten in their last two games though, which will give them some confidence ahead of their trip to London. With all of this in mind, we are backing Chelsea with odds of 1/6 from Brt365.
