Chelsea’s ”issues” aren’t quite as extreme but they too have plenty of questions to answer regarding their will to battle. As is typical for the club over the last few seasons, the output of the players isn’t something you can always rely on.
Fulham have lost eight of their last nine games, conceding 22 goals in that period. The last match against Southampton looked like their last chance to give themselves hope of staying up. They didn’t manage and in truth, didn’t really show up. The scoreling was 2-0 but in truth it could have been more.
The Blues are on a peculiar run of results which has seen them go WLWLWLWLW over the last 9. If they were to continue that pattern, they’d get beat today in this West London derby. That looks unlikely in the extreme but can Sarri’s men be trusted at skinny odds?
At just 1/2 with most firms, there is an implied chance they win this match 66.66% of the time. We feel that’s pretty fair but where Chelsea can be relied upon more so is in the possession battle. This is something that they have been far more consistent in winning this season using Sarriball.
The markets we can take advantage of best are those based upon the amount of passes particular players will make during the match. We’ve isolated two bets that make appeal and offer value for followers.
