Chelsea vs. Stoke City Preview & Tips

Posted on by editor

Chelsea will be smarting after being outplayed by West Bromwich last weekend. While the club bounced back with a win against Birmingham in an FA Cup replay in the midweek, Chelsea will need to put away Stoke City at the Bridge this weekend to stay in contention for a place in the top four.

Chelsea vs. Stoke City Trends Analysis

Stoke haven’t beaten Chelsea once in the last ten meetings between these sides, while Chelsea has claimed seven wins and three matches ended in draws. The best result Stoke achieved at the Bridge during this period was a single away draw – and this was achieved in 1984!

Stoke City’s last visit to Stamford Bridge produced a 2-0 win for the home team.

It looks like heads are going to roll at Stamford Bridge fairly soon with Chelsea on two wins, two defeats and a draw from their last five matches. The club is totally out of the reckoning for the title, is out of Europe and is now battling for a place in Europe next season and the FA Cup.

Chelsea’s attack has produced 7 goals in the last five matches – not a great result by the club’s own high standards. The defence has been ordinary, letting in 5 goals during the same period – albeit maintaining 2 clean sheets.

Stoke’s hit a purple patch, meanwhile, with two wins from two matches. Overall the club has three wins and two defeats to show for its last five games, with both defeats coming against Valencia in the Europa League.

Stoke have scored 5 goals in their last five matches. While Stoke’s attack has been average, defence has put in some good performances, conceding just 2 goals in five games, to match Everton as the best defensive unit in the Premiership over recent weeks.

Chelsea vs. Stoke City Betting Tips

Chelsea’s misfiring attack up against Stoke City’s solid defence? Somehow it doesn’t look like things are going to go Chelsea’s way just yet. The home side is under enormous pressure, while Stoke can keep the heat on 7th placed Liverpool if they win this match.

Chelsea will always be the favourite to win this, but there’s no denying that Stoke could edge this or produce a draw come Saturday.

Our Chelsea vs. Stoke City betting tip is to sit on the fence and put your money on the over/under goals market, where you’ll get close to evens on under 2.75 goals being scored in this fixture.
