Stoke vs Chelsea Preview
With Stoke in 14th and Chelsea 15th in the table, a win for either team would be welcomed, but the risk is that both teams might play a safe game, rather than playing to win.
Both teams would probably be happy with a point, but they really need to start winning regularly if either are going to be happy with their positions at the end of the season.
The Stoke vs Chelsea match is also set to be shown live on SkySports and is a great opportunity to use bookmakers signup offers and in-play betting options.
Stoke's Best Odds: 3/1
If you’re betting on Stoke to win, Bet Victor offers the best odds at 3/1.
Stoke have won just 3 of their games in the Premier League this season, and even though they’re a little shaky, they’ll be hopeful of taking 3 points from a dismal Chelsea.
Currently in 14th place on the league table, a win would give Mark Hughes' squad a much needed boost as it would take them into the top half of the table.
Even though Stoke have the home advantage, Chelsea have beaten Stoke 18 times at The Britannia Stadium, compared to just 16 victories for Stoke.
Having bagged a draw in their League Cup clash against Chelsea recently, this could give them the confidence they need to go all out and walk away with a victory.
Hughes has some great players including Shaqiri, Afellay and Bojan available, but they are yet to gel and make an impact to bring a sense of purpose to Stoke.
Chelsea's Best Odds: 21/20
Even though Chelsea are struggling, bookmakers have them as favourites for the match.
If you agree with the bookmakers and can see Chelsea winning, Ladbrokes offers the best odds at 21/20.
Mourinho's Chelsea are having an abysmal season and have only managed to win 3 of their 11 Premier League games, and are really struggling at 15th position.
A 3-1 loss to Liverpool last the weekend was a further blow to their Premier League campaign, but a win against Dynamo Kiev should have lifted the squad’s spirits.
In another blow, Chelsea manager Mourinho also received a one-match stadium ban and won’t be able to attend the Stoke game this weekend.
With only one win in eight games, this will no doubt have an impact on Chelsea’s performance, especially seeing as Stoke ended Chelsea’s League Cup chances!
Best Odds On A Draw: 12/5
While Chelsea are the bookmakers favourites, they're really hard to predict this season.
If you're betting on neither team doing enough to win, Coral offers the best odds at 12/5.
A draw could be a very realistic result for this game, given that the teams drew the last time they met, and neither team is on top form at the moment.
