Chelsea v Sunderland Premier League, 21st May 3.00pm
The Blues will pick up the Premier League trophy on Sunday in a party at Stamford Bridge. They earned a great 4-3 win over Watford in mid-week with a much-changed starting eleven. This will also be the last league showing from John Terry in a Chelsea shirt as well in a big afternoon at Stamford Bridge. Sunderland are just there to make up the numbers really. Chelsea are 1/7 for the win, with the draw at 13/2 and Sunderland are a massive 16/1 price.

Chelsea v Sunderland Betting Tips
The Blues will be in a party mood on Sunday, no matter what happens out on the pitch of course. The Blues have won their last five league games on the bounce and they have taken three clean sheets in their last four played as well. Chelsea to win to nil at Sky Bet is a price of 4/7. Earlier in the campaign, they went to the Stadium of Light and put a 1-0 win on the board. It may get a little more interesting than that and a Chelsea 2-0 correct score at Sky Bet is trading at a quote of 9/2, the shortest priced option in the market. Antonio Conte fielded an understrength side in their match against Watford in the week and Michy Batshuayi is an 8/11 poke in the anytime goalscorer market to continue his scoring streak, with Diego Costa at 8/15. John Terry is 5/2 to net in his last league game for the Blues. Chelsea have won their last two at home against Sunderland and with them winning 16 of their 18 Premier League home games this season, even if they just phone this one in, they will probably win. They need to keep somewhat focused ahead of the FA Cup final. Over 2.5 goals at Sky bet is a price of 8/13. Chelsea have won 20 of their last 24 Premier League games against Sunderland (D1 L3), although two of those losses have come in the last six contests.
Each of the last four between these two at Stamford Bridge have seen at least three goals in them, so there is a trend there. Chelsea have scored at least three goals in four of their last five league matches. Sunderland have netted in each of their last four visits to Stamford Bridge and both teams to score at Sky Bet is a quote of 5/4. Sunderland were poor in a 2-0 home loss against Swansea last weekend and while they offered up some resistance at Arsenal in midweek, they ultimately slumped again to another 2-0 loss. Sunderland’s away record this season in the top flight reads W3 D1 L14 and it’s unlikely that they will put much more than just huff and puff into this game. The Black Cats have failed to score in five of their last six away games now and in four of their last five home and away in the league. It’s likely Jermain Defoe will be playing his last game for them and he is a price of 15/4 in the anytime goalscorer market. The Black Cats have lost a total of 22 Premier League games against the Blues; only Manchester United have defeated them more times (23).
Who will win – Chelsea v Sunderland Predictions
Chelsea home win: The blues will probably sign off the league campaign with a win against the Black Cats. The Blues will be in party mode at the end of the game regardless of what happens, but it is worth backing them to win in a game which sees both teams score.
