Despite fighting tooth and nail against Arsenal last weekend, Mark Hughes’ men failed to secure a decent result that could have aided their relegation battle after succumbing to a 3-2 loss at the Emirates Stadium.
A chance for both sides cancelling each other out is available at a chunky (3.65).
The Blues have not been in the form that saw them win the Premier League title last season. They have only managed to claim the three points in two of their previous eight outings in all competitions.
However, having come out on top in their last four meetings with their visitors, they are odds-on at (1.90) to coast to victory.
Besides, they have avoided defeat in eight of their previous nine games with the south coast outfit and will be looking to extend the unbeaten run at the price of (1.18).
The last meeting between both sides ended 1-0 in favour of Chelsea with Marcos Alonso scoring the solitary goal. As a result, a few goals will likely surface in this tie and LionsBet have quoted (1.80) for fewer than two goals here while odds of (1.85) is on offer for both sides NOT to score.
