Antonio Conte’s men were blanked in a stalemate with Arsenal last week at Stamford Bridge – the first time in the Italian’s 27 home games they have failed to score – and will be out with a vengeance as they look for a fourth league win in five matches.
Stoke, meanwhile, have picked up just five points this season, although four of these have come at the bet365 Stadium in a win over Arsenal and a 2-2 draw with Manchester United.
The Potters are 19/4 (5.75) to upset the form books here and continue their stellar home form against the team they have lost to 13 times in the Premier League – more than they have against any other opponent.
History provides another interesting look at this fixture: backing Willian to add to his four Premier League goals against Mark Hughes’ side is priced at 9/4 (3.25) anytime.
Although Chelsea should win this match, that is hardly a world-beating tip, therefore goals is the way to go; Stoke have scored in their last four league matches and Chelsea have scored in all-but one of their last five.
With that in mind, backing both teams to score at 19/20 (1.95) is too good value to miss, especially considering that four of the last five top flight matches between these sides have seen goals at both ends.
That bet would have paid out in three of each teams' five games, although for a slightly riskier punt, adding the visitors to the above tip takes it out to 13/5 (3.60) on bet365.
