Jose Mourinho’s men have made a great start to the season by beating Hull City in their first game at home and will be eager to make it six points from two games when Aston Villa come calling on Wednesday night in what promises to be an interesting clash.
The Londoners are yet to lose before their home crowd, thus this places them as outstanding favorites to stroll past their visitors as the English Premier League hits week two. Chelsea are chalked up at a staggering 2/7 (1.28) to secure victory with Ladbrokes.
Paul Lambert’s men posted a brilliant showing at the Emirates, defeating Arsenal 3-1 at their backyard which is their first away victory of the season. They can be backed at 17/2 (9.5) with Ladbrokes to shock their hosts in their second away outing of the new campaign.
The draw is a 9/2 (5.50) shot with the same firm.
With both teams find the back of the net more than once in their previous encounters, it is worth backing both teams to score at 20/21 (1.95) , a testimony to the quality of attackers paraded by both teams.
Chelsea goal scoring form this season has not gone unnoticed especially when it comes to playing before their teeming supporters. The last time both team faced one another at this same venue, it was the Villains who was at the receiving ends as they were spanked 8-0 at the Stamford Bridge. Little wonder Ladbrokes is backing Chelsea to go goal crazy with 4+ goals at 11/4 (3.75).
Fernando Torres and Romelu Lukaku are joint favorites to open scoring on the night at 4/1 (5.00). Demba Ba did not feature against Hull City and should he get the nod to play against the Villians, he is likely to find the back of the net first at 9/2 (5.5).
Those looking to back bigger prices should back a total goal under 3.5 at 11/20 (1.55).
