Chelsea vs. Bolton Wanderers Preview & Tips

Posted on by editor

Chelsea has a sound opportunity to bounce back into the Premiership top four this weekend when they host Bolton at Stamford Bridge. A win is crucial for the Blues, who haven’t won in five games.

Chelsea vs. Bolton Wanderers Trends Analysis

Chelsea have totally dominated Bolton in recent seasons, winning nine of their last ten matches against Bolton, and drawing a single fixture at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea won their last home game against Bolton 1-0, but thrashed Bolton 5-1 when they travelled to the Reebok Stadium earlier this season.

Chelsea has had an unhappy couple of weeks having failed to win one of their last five matches, losing two of these, and hitting rock bottom with a 3-1 trashing at Napoli in the Europa League this week – following on a dismal draw against Birmingham in the FA Cup.

The Chelsea forwards aren’t performing, with just 6 goals scored in five matches. The club’s defence has been atrocious too, letting in 10 goals during the same period.

Bolton have at least won two of their last five games, with their most recent victory coming against Millwall in the FA Cup 5th Round. Bolton also pulled off a good draw against Arsenal, but lost to Norwich and Wigan during this time.

Bolton hasn’t be sparking up front, with a workmanlike 5 goals scored in five matches. Defence has been letting them in at the same rate, with 5 goals conceded during this time.

Chelsea vs. Bolton Wanderers Betting Tips

Bolton won’t have a better opportunity to meet Chelsea at home, but they don’t really look like they have the firepower to exploit the situation.

Chelsea know it’s do or die, and taking 4th place in the Premiership with a win in this fixture would ease a lot of pressure on the club’s personnel.

We expect Chelsea to find some form in this fixture, and score some goals in the process, so our Chelsea vs. Bolton Wanderers betting tip is to cash in on a free bet at Bet365, and back over 2.75 goals to be scored in this fixture.
