Match: Chelsea- Stoke City (Premiership) Preview, Predictions and Betting Tips
Date: Satyrday, March 5, 2016
Start time: 15:00 GMT
Chelsea host Stoke City in a match from 29th round of the Premier League. The game at “Stamford Bridge” is expected to be very interesting because the guest are in good form lately and “The Blues” are unbeaten in the league under the leadership of Guus Hiddink.
Chelsea performed very well in the Premier League since Jose Mourinho was sacked. The Blues have been impressive under the leadership of Guus Hiddink and thanks to winning 2:1 over Norwich City in the week Londoners finally came into the Top 10. “Blues” are just eight points behind the Champions League zone and, no doubt, will give the most best to increase his winning run in the “Premier League” to four games.
Chelsea has only one win in their last five home games in the Premier League, but they are definitely able to win all three points in Saturday’s match against Stoke.
John Terry, Kurt Zouma, Radamel Falcao and Pedro are injured and Guus Hiddink will not be able to rely on them in the home game against “The Potters”.
Stoke is a series of three consecutive wins in the Premier League after victories over Bournemouth, Aston Villa and Newcastle. The success against “The Magpies” in mid-week allowed the team to climb the 7th position in the table with a total of 42 points, five less than the fourth Manchester United.
Mark Hughes is doing a great job with the team from the Britannia Stadium, but its graduates must continue with good game if they want to take part in European club competitions next season.
In the team there are a lot of guests injured players. Shay Given, Glen Johnson, Phil Bardsley, Mark Wilson and Charlie Adam are in the infirmary while Ryan Shawcross is doubtful for the game.
Chelsea found his best form recently and, without doubt, the Blues head into Saturday’s clash confident in their abilities. The champions are very strong in attack, scoring nine goals in their last three league games and expect to score against Stoke. The Potters are in fine form in 2016, but Chelsea showed fluctuations in defense and both teams to score should be a great option for this game.
