Both sides are desperate for maximum points from Sunday's match in west London but our tipster is backing Jose Mourinho's men to win to nil against Neil Adams' sideNorwich City slipped into the Premier League relegation zone following a morale-sapping 4-0 reverse at the hands of Manchester United last weekend and the Canaries face another tough test on Sunday afternoon when they travel to take on Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
The Blues kept their slim hopes of claiming the title alive with victory over Liverpool last weekend and Jose Mourinho's men are red-hot favourites to collect maximum points from Sunday's clash in west London, despite suffering a setback when losing to Atletico Madrid in the Uefa Champions League semi-finals in midweek.
The home side can be backed at just 1/5 (1.20) with William Hill to bounce back against Neil Adams' men, while the visitors are available at a massive 12/1 (13.0) with the same firm ahead of Sunday's tussle. The draw is rated as an 11/2 (6.50) chance with William Hill this weekend.
It is worth noting that while their chances of claiming the title are slim, Chelsea boast the best defensive record in the top flight, having conceded just 26 in 36 league matches thus far this term, while Norwich - jointly with Crystal Palace - have managed the fewest goals in the Premier League this season, having netted just 28 times in 36 outings.
With that in mind, the 5/6 (1.83) quote from William Hill for Chelsea to win to nil at Stamford Bridge this weekend appears to be a solid selection for punters.
It is worth noting, too, that the Canaries trailed just 1-0 at half-time against Manchester United last week before suffering a second half collapse and, should that be repeated this weekend, there would be value in backing the 11/10 (2.10) quote from William Hill for most goals to come in the second half at Stamford Bridge.
However, punters are advised instead to play safe and back the Blues to shut out Neil Adams' shot-shy Canaries here and, so, it is the 5/6 (1.83) quote from William Hill for Chelsea to win to nil that is the recommended play this weekend.
