Chelsea v Burnley Betting Tips: Home side to edge narrow affair

On paper, this match between champions Chelsea and Burnley looks very one-sided. However, I think it could be a closer game than many think. Chelsea are of course the champions going into this season but they have had a rather strange transfer window this summer. Nemanja Matic, a key figure from last year’s title win, has left for pastures new whilst striker Diego Costa has been told he is no longer wanted. In terms of players in, Alvaro Morata has arrived from Real Madrid but, unfortunately for him, he was clearly the second option behind Romelu Lukaku who joined Manchester…

Chelsea v Arsenal Betting Tips: Wembley to witness a few goals on Saturday evening

The grand finale of the English football season takes place on Saturday as Chelsea and Arsenal make the relatively short to Wembley to contest the FA Cup Final. Chelsea of course go into this match in pursuit of a league and cup double in what has been a fantastic first season for manager Antonio Conte. The Italian manager has his side in brilliant form going into this match with seven back-to-back wins in all competitions. Unsurprisingly, the Blues have been in excellent form in both boxes this campaign with 85 scored and just 33 conceded in their 38 league matches.…

Chelsea v Sunderland Betting Tips: Hosts to heap misery on relegation-bound visitors

First takes on last in this final Premier League match as champions Chelsea , who will look to finish their successful Premier League campaign with a win, host Sunderland who were relegated a while ago after a grim season. Chelsea are of course in fantastic form at the moment having won their last six matches in all competitions. However, with the title already sealed and an FA Cup final to look forward to next week, it will be interesting to see if Antonio Conte chooses to rest players on Sunday in this dead rubber. As I have said on pretty…

Chelsea v Watford Betting Tips: Champions to continue their good form

After Chelsea’s title win on Friday night, this match is now a dead rubber for both teams as Watford also have nothing else to play for and will end up in and around mid-table. Chelsea came through a tough match on Friday night to snatch a 1-0 victory at West Brom which hands them the title. It was certainly a matter of when rather than if for Chelsea as their recent form has been stunning with five consecutive wins in all competitions. The Blues’ victory a on Friday night was typical of a championship winning side as they dug in…

West Bromwich Albion v Chelsea Betting Tips: Blues to secure title with a few goals

A win for Chelsea here will seal the Premier League title, however, although they have little to play for, going to West Brom is a tough task for any side. West Brom achieved safety a long time ago and perhaps should have pushed on to better things this season. Instead, they have firmly had the flip-flops on and have subsequently taken just two points from a possible 18 in their last six. Until recently, Tony Pulis’s men had been very solid at the back and even now their record of just 45 goals conceded in 35 games is pretty impressive.…

Chelsea v Middlesbrough Betting Tips: Another low-key affair for this pair

After Tottenham’s slip-up against West Ham United on Friday night, this match gives Chelsea the chance to once again stretch their lead at the top of the table to seven points. For Middlesbrough, with just two games to go after this one and a gap of seven points between themselves and safety, this is certainly a must-not-lose and probably a must-win. Whilst Tottenham put up a valiant fight, the Premier League title race is all but over now with Chelsea on such good form at the top of the table having won four of their last five league games. Antonio…

Chelsea v Southampton Betting Tips: Conte’s men to move one step closer

Tuesday’s Premier League match sees title contenders Chelsea host Southampton, who are destined to finish mid-table but will want to ensure they put on a good display at Stamford Bridge. Despite being under pressure for most of the second half, Chelsea managed to get the better of Premier League title rivals Tottenham Hotspur to reach the FA Cup final and thus give themselves a decent chance of winning the double. However, they are only four points ahead of Spurs in the title race and so this match against Southampton is a must-win. Although they can certainly score a few goals,…

Chelsea v Manchester United Betting Tips: Conte to get the better of Mourinho again

Monday’s FA Cup tie looks like it could be a real cracker between two top Premier League sides as Chelsea host Manchester United at Stamford Bridge. We all know how well Chelsea are doing this season, hence why they sit ten points clear at the top of the league following three wins on the bounce and no defeats in seven. Antonio Conte’s side have some of the best offensive and defensive stats in the league with 57 scored and just 20 goals conceded in 27 top flight matches. In fact, when you add their clean sheet tally of 13 into…

West Ham United v Chelsea Betting Tips: Monday night misery for Hammers

Monday night’s Premier League match is a London derby between West Ham United and Chelsea. West Ham are on a decent run at the moment with no defeats in their last three, pushing them up to 11th in the table. Slaven Bilic, who was under pressure until recently, has got his side playing attacking football which has resulted in the Hammers scoring 35 times in just 26 games – 12 of those in just their last five matches. However, this does mean they leak a few (44 in total) and they have failed to keep a clean sheet in their…

Chelsea v Arsenal Betting Tips: League leaders to keep going forward

After being involved in a supposed title decider on Tuesday night, Chelsea face Arsenal in another big game at lunchtime on Saturday. Chelsea managed to stretch their lead at the top of the table to a huge nine points after drawing 1-1 away at Liverpool in a match they probably should have won. This result also means that the Blues have still not lost in any competition since their defeat at Tottenham back in early January. Antonio Conte can pretty much have no complaints with his side in either the forward area or at the back. They may have lost…

There’s every chance that this fixture could prove to be decisive when it comes to deciding who lifts the Premier League in May. As they are currently eight points ahead of 2nd place Arsenal, Chelsea know that a win away at Liverpool pretty much guarantees them the title – although they would not say that themselves!  Antonio Conte’s men have recovered from their defeat against Tottenham Hotspur a couple of weeks ago to win their last four matches on the bounce in all competitions. Nobody except for Tottenham have figured out how to counter Chelsea’s 3-4-3 system which seems to…

Chelsea v Hull City Betting Tips: Perfect game for Costa to return to the fore

This Premier League match sees runaway leaders Chelsea host struggling Hull City in what could be a bit of a goal-fest for the hosts. Although Chelsea’s 13-match winning streak in the league came to an abrupt end against Tottenham Hotspur a couple of weeks ago, the Blues have shown that they are still the team to beat and have recovered to win their last two games in all competitions in convincing fashion. Defence is still the basis of Chelsea’s good form with their record of just 15 goals conceded in 21 games which is an average of 0.7 goals per…

Chelsea v Peterborough Betting Tips: Blues to bounce back by dominating League One side

This FA Cup tie sees Chelsea, top of the English football pyramid, take on Peterborough United of League One. Chelsea saw their 13-match winning streak ended by Tottenham Hotspur in midweek as they lost 2-0 at White Hart Lane. However, this result now arguably takes the pressure off them as they no longer have that monkey on their back whilst they are still five points clear of 2nd place Liverpool. A team on such an incredible run generally has incredible attributes all over the pitch, however, their loss at Spurs proved that they can be broken down and stopped in…

Tottenham v Chelsea Betting Tips: White Hart Lane set for fiery encounter

Two sides looking to take the Premier League title come head-to-head at White Hart Lane on Wednesday night in a fixture which got very feisty towards the end of last season. Spurs currently sit fifth in the table, ahead of sixth on goal difference and a huge 10 points behind league leaders and Wednesday’s opponents Chelsea. Even at this early stage, it looks like that gap will be too big to close. Tottenham had been criticised for relying too much on their solid defence in the early part of the season as they went on an exceptional run which saw…

Chelsea v Stoke City Betting Tips: League leaders to see out 2016 in style

Top of the table Chelsea host Stoke City in this New Year’s Eve clash. As things stand at the moment, it looks as though the title is Chelsea’s to lose as they currently sit top of the Premier League with a three point gap between themselves and Liverpool having won their last 12 matches on the spin. When a side has picked up maximum points on their last dozen outings it is incredibly easy to spot all of the good sides to their game. However, defensively has been the main bedrock to Antonio Conte’s side’s form with his team conceding…

This Boxing Day match sees Chelsea, who are looking to stretch their amazing winning run to 12 (which would be a club record), host Bournemouth who’re certainly capable of winning games but cannot find the same consistency as their opponents. Chelsea may not have won their latest match that convincingly against Crystal Palace, but, in actual fact, this is the sign of the perfect team – one that is able to claim victory even when they do not play well. This good pattern not only happened against Palace but also happened in their other two games prior to that against…

This match sees two clubs go head-to-head who are going in different directions with Crystal Palace quickly sliding towards relegation whilst Chelsea top the division by six points. Palace have the worst record in 2016 out of all 92 of the Football League clubs and manager Alan Pardew is under huge pressure coming into the Christmas period with many bookmakers tipping him to be the next manager to lose his job. The Eagles impressive 3-0 win against Southampton looked like it could be a turning point, but it has since been back to square one for Palace since then with…

Bottom takes on top as Sunderland host Chelsea on Wednesday night. Sunderland had actually been on a decent run in recent weeks, picking up wins against some of the lower sides in the division which temporarily lifted them off the bottom of the table. However, they capitulated at the weekend and suffered an incredibly damaging 3-0 defeat to fellow relegation strugglers Swansea City which plonks the Black Cats back at the foot of the table. David Moyes’ team have showed that they are more capable defensively than they had been earlier n the season – conceding just two goals in…

The Premier League weekend kicks-off with a mouth-watering title clash between Manchester City and Chelsea. City have been on a rather inconsistent run in recent weeks and have failed to notch consecutive wins since the end of October/beginning of November. After such an impressive start to the season it now seems that quite a few teams have started to work Pep Guardiola’s team out and know exactly how to set up against them. Fortunately for City, they have found a way of winning matches without blitzing teams – which is what they were doing at the start of the season.…

Saturday’s evening kick-off sees the two teams with the best defensive records in the league come head-to-head in a London derby. Tottenham have been on a bit of a bad run recently with just one win in their last nine matches in all competitions. However, their form has shown signs of picking up in the Premier League and Spurs did extremely well to come back and win their last league match against West Ham despite being 2-1 down with two minutes to go – ensuring they stayed fifth in the table. Of course Spurs are still unbeaten in the Premier…

Sunday’s sole Premier League clash sees two sides in pretty decent form, yet at opposite ends of the table, come together. Newly-promoted Middlesbrough had been struggling in the opening couple of months of the season with three consecutive losses in September. However, in recent weeks they have improved their survival chances having remained unbeaten in their last three fixtures which included well-deserved away draws at title challengers Arsenal and Manchester City. All in all this puts them 15th in the table and a point above the relegation zone. If it were not for this good run, who knows where Middlesbrough…

Saturday evening kick-off in the Premier League sees two teams aiming for a return to European football next season go head-to-head. Chelsea have been pretty imperious following their consecutive losses against fellow Champions League chasers Liverpool and Arsenal at the end of September. Since those defeats they have won their last four matches and all by a ‘to nil’ scoreline. Additionally, it was not like they were facing relegation candidates in that time with three of those victories coming against champions Leicester City, Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United and in-form Southampton. Furthermore, after such a dismal home record last season where…

This should be an interesting match between two sides who have both been on good runs in the league recently. Both of them will be brimming with confidence and belief that they can achieve a good result on Sunday. Southampton have gone very much under the radar despite their recent form – probably due to them only being eighth in the Premier League table. However, their draw away at title favourites Manchester City was hardly a shock when you look at the contrasting recent results of the two teams. The Saints will even feel they should have won that match…

One of the fixtures in the fourth round of the League Cup sees a London derby between West Ham United and Chelsea. As usual with two Premier League sides we can expect a fair amount of squad rotation. West Ham United finally have the monkey off the back and managed to record a first league win at their new London Stadium at the weekend. This victory against lowly-Sunderland followed another impressive win over Crystal Palace during the previous weekends’ round of matches. After conceding an alarming 15 goals in five matches before their victory over London rivals Palace, West Ham…

The main headline here is of course the return of two-time Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho to Stamford Bridge as he looks to take revenge on his former employers with his new Manchester United side. The fact that this is the main headline grabber for this match, rather than the quality of the two teams, shows just how boring it might be. Last week the odds dramatically shortened on Chelsea’s latest manager, Antonio Conte, being the next Premier League boss to be sacked. It seems the bookies got hold of a supposed insider word which has turned out to be unreliable.…

These two sides will both be clamouring for at least a top four finish come the end of the season and are probably both quietly confident that they can challenge for the title. They currently sit in fourth (Arsenal) and fifth (Chelsea) respectively so whoever wins this will boost themselves right into the tag of early season title contenders. Arsenal have won their last three league fixtures and all in rather convincing fashion, scoring a total of nine goals in the process. OK these victories were against vastly inferior opposition but they have shown their title rivals that they mean…

This is the only all-Premier League EFL Cup tie on Tuesday and therefore garners the most interest. Although I doubt the match will be played at Premier League pace, I think we should still be in for a good match between these two good teams. How seriously either side takes the competition is another issue. Leicester had a dodgy start to their season but are now back to form after two 3-0 wins on the bounce. First on their Champions League debut away at Brugge before inflicting defeat on newly-promoted Burnley. Islam Slimani has taken to the Foxes like a…
