Chelsea

Chelsea v Burnley Premier League Preview, 22nd April 8.00pm

Chelsea missed out on important points last weekend in the race for a top-four finish as they suffered a loss at the title-chasing Liverpool. They will be hoping for an easier time of things on home soil against Burnley this weekend. The Clarets though should show up in a bullish mood as they have won each of their last three league games, putting relegation worries behind them. Read our Chelsea v Burnley betting tips for more.

Chelsea News and Form

Chelsea lost 2-0 last weekend in the Premier League against Liverpool. In midweek they almost blew a 3-0 half-time lead against Slavia Prague in the Europa League, the Blues ending up winning the game 4-3. It has not been the most convincing of seasons from the Blues but they are still in the mix for a top-four finish. Before their defeat at Liverpool Chelsea were on a three-match winning streak in the Premier League. Their home form has been good at Stamford Bridge this season in the top flight as it stands at W11 D5 L1. Chelsea are undefeated in their last seven home games and they are currently on a six-match scoring streak at the bridge.

The Blues have averaged exactly 2 goals per home game this season and they have been tight in defence as well. Chelsea have conceded at 0.6 goals per home game this season and they have collected a clean sheet in four of their last five at home in the top flight. Only 41% of chalices home games this season have gone over 2.5 goals. The Blues in total have taken a clean sheet in 53% of home fixtures. Of their 11 home victories, this season all but two of them have been by a two-goal margin. Chelsea have yet to be losing at the halftime break in a home game this season and they have scored 59% of their home goals in the second period of fixtures.

Chelsea earned a 4-0 away win at Burnley earlier this season
The Blues have won their last two league meetings with the Clarets
Burnley won this corresponding fixture last season 3-2
Both teams have scored in six of their last eight league meetings

Burnley News and Form

Burnley are on a three-match winning streak at the moment after collecting a home win over Cardiff last weekend. They also collected a victory in their last away game which was against Bournemouth but they had lost their previous two on the road against Newcastle and Liverpool. The overall away record of Burnley this season has seen them win just four games (D4 L9). Three of those four away victories this season by the Clarets have been in 2019. Burnley have struggled for clean sheets away from home this season collecting one in 18% of their road fixtures.

Burnley average 1.1 goals per away game this season but they have conceded at an average of 1.9 per road game. So that is really where they have fallen down. In their five away games against the other big six teams in the division this season Burnley are D1 L4. There has been no clean sheet in any of their last five away games but they have scored at least two goals in their last two away fixtures. Of the nine away defeats at Burnley have suffered this season seven of them have been by at least a two goal margin. They have conceded 59% of their away goals in the second period of fixtures. There are only four teams in the division currently with a worse defensive record than that of Burnley’s.

Chelsea v Slavia Prague Prediction & Betting Tips, 18th April 2019

Chelsea

Chelsea v Slavia Prague UEFA Europa League Preview, 18th April 8.05pm

Chelsea didn’t have a comfortable night away from home in the first leg, but they managed to get away with a 1-0 win. That sets them up nicely on home soil to drive on and put this tie in the book. But Slavia Prague will have plenty of belief about them after a spirited effort in that first leg. Read our Chelsea v Slavia Prague betting tips for more.

Slavia Prague 15/2
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on April 13th, 2019 at 5:02 p.m.)


Chelsea News and Form

Chelsea have the advantage in the tie thanks to a Marcos Alonso goal. Their 1-0 success in the Czech Republic moved them onto a 14 match undefeated streak of form in the tournament. That’s just one from equalling Atletico Madrid’s record in the competition. The Blues have now won ten of their 11 matches in the UEFA Nations League this term. The first leg in this tie was the first time that the Blues had met Slavia Prague and they were given a stern test.

The Blues are undefeated in seven games against opposition from the Czech Republic now but are just W1 D2 in their three previous such home games. Across their eleven games in this season’s Europa League, Chelsea have conceded in just three of them. The Blues have never lost at home in the Europa League and they have never exited Europe after having won the first leg of a tie away from home (11 occasions). This is their first home game against a team from the Czech Republic since a duel with Sparta Praha in the 2013/13 Europa League round of 32.

Slavia Prague News and Form

This is the furthest that Slavia Prague have been in European competition before, having gotten out of the group stage in the Europa League for the first time. They qualified as runners up behind Zenit. They then knocked out Genk in the second round before pulling out a surprise upset in getting the better of Spanish side Sevilla with a 4-3 aggregate win. In that tie, they had battled to a good 2-2 on the road.

Their away form doesn’t make for good reading in Europe. They have won just three of their last 27 road games in European fixtures (D10 L14). Of their six away games so far in Europe this season, they have failed to score in three of them, each of those three games ending in defeat. Slavia have lost all six UEFA competition ties in which they were defeated at home in the first leg. They have won just one of their ten UEFA fixtures against English opposition and have lost their three previous two-legged ties against English clubs in Europe.

Who will win – Chelsea v Slavia Prague Predictions

Chelsea were under a bit of pressure in the first leg but still got the job done. It could be a little less stressful for them back at the Bridge for the second leg. They should be in control of this and Chelsea to win to nil at evens is a decent proposition* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on April 13th, 2019 at 5:02 p.m.).

A huge game for Liverpool and their title ambitions. On paper, it is really their toughest game of their remaining fixtures now. Can they secure three points at this crucial stage? Chelsea also have a lot to play for as they turn up at Anfield. The Blues are battling hard for a top-four finish and can’t afford to drop points either.

Liverpool News and Form

Liverpool have had some scrapes in their last few games but they keep returning of the wins. They benefited from mistakes from Fulham and Tottenham to win the recent games against those opponents, and then they had to battle back from falling behind and Southampton in their last fixture. So they have been under pressure but they have so far handled the pressure, winning each of their last four league fixtures. It is a 12 match undefeated streak of form that Liverpool are currently on in the Premier League. They are on a four-match winning streak on home soil.

Liverpool home record in the top flight this season reads W14 D2 from their 16 matches played. The Reds have averaged 2.9 goals per home game. Their defence has also been bang on point with them conceding just 10 goals at home all season for an average of 0.6 per game. That having been said home and away Liverpool have no clean sheet in their last four played. 69% of league games at Anfield this season have made it over 2.5 goals, even with Liverpool claiming a clean sheet in 56% of home fixtures. Liverpool have been winning at the halftime break in 11 of their home games and they are on a 12 match scoring streak on home soil.

Chelsea News and Form

Chelsea are currently on a three-match winning streak although the level of opposition in streak hasn’t been the highest. The big thing that comes into question for Chelsea is their away form. They have won two of their last three on the road but looking back at their extended form the Blues have lost four of their last six Premier League away games, failing to score in any of those defeats. The two victories which they have taken in that sequence were against Cardiff and Fulham who are both in the bottom three.

Away from home, this season Chelsea are W9 D1 L6 and in that campaign, on the road, they have scored 23 goals which is an average of 1.4 per game. Chelsea have not taken a clean sheet in any of their last six road fixtures which is a huge concern for them heading to Anfield. Chelsea haven’t been involved in an away draw in any of their last 13 played. Chelsea have opened the scoring in nine of their road fixtures this season while six of their nine away successes have been by just the one goal margin only.

Chelsea have a lot to play for and they don’t have a bad record at Anfield either. However, Liverpool have been in tremendous form at home and luck seems to be on their side. They may well find a way to bag a precious three points in this one.

Slavia Prague News and Form

This is the furthest that Slavia Prague have ever been in the Europa League. So this has been a bold new adventure for them and now they have to go up against one of the best sides left in the competition. In the round of sixteen in this season’s Europa League, Prague earned a thrilling upset over Sevilla, Prague earning a 4-3 aggregate win in that tie. The Czech side landed a stoppage-time winner in the second leg to progress. This is the first time that they have managed to get out of the group stage in a Europa League campaign actually, finishing runners up. They then beat Genk 4-1 on aggregate in the round of 32.

Slavia Prague have never met Chelsea before, and they have taken only one win from their previous nine UEFA games against English opponents. That win was over Leeds in the 1999/2000 UEFA Cup, but Slavia Prague still lost the tie on aggregate. That is one of three previous two-legged contests against English sides, Slavia Prague losing all of them. They are W3 D3 at home in Europe, keeping a clean sheet in four of their five played in this season’s Europa League proper.

Chelsea News and Form

Chelsea booked themselves a pretty comfortable time in the group stage of this season’s Europa League. The Blues have gone W9 D1 in their ten games played so far, after dropping just the two points in the group stage. In the round of 32, Chelsea took a 5-1 aggregate success over Swedish side Malmo. They then hammered Dynamo Kiev 8-0 on aggregate in the round of sixteen. It’s been that easy for them and things may continue to be that way for them here. Chelsea hold a W3 D3 record against Czech clubs. They have not conceded in three previous visits to Prague.

Out on their European travels this season, Chelsea are W4 D1. This is only their second appearance in the knockout phase of the Europa League. Their previous one was in the 2012/13 season when they went all the way to lift the trophy. The Blues are on an 13 match undefeated streak of form in the Europa League now and need to go two more to tie the record held by Atletico Madrid. Chelsea are undefeated in their last six away games in the competition (W5 D1) since their defeat at Rubin Kazan in their 2012/13 quarter-final

Who will win – Slavia Prague v Chelsea Predictions

Chelsea should have too much in the bag for their opponents in this one and the Blues will be looking for a good clean sheet on their travels. It is worth having a look at backing Cheslea to get the win to nil at 7/4 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on April 7th, 2019 at 7:12 p.m.)

Chelsea News and Form

The Blues took a midweek 3-0 home win over Brighton to make it back to back league wins. Last weekend they took a 2-1 win out at Cardiff after having fallen behind in the game. That is just two wins in their last four league games though, home and away (D1 L1). The Blues have had a pretty strong season at home though with a W10 D5 L1 record this season. They are undefeated in their last six at Stamford Bridge in league action, with a W4 D2 record from that sequence. Even though they have been defensively fragile this season, their defence has been good at home.

Chelsea have conceded just an average of 0.6 goals per home game this season, earning a clean sheet in 50% of their fixtures. Less than half of their home games have gone over 2.5 goals. Chelsea average exactly two goals per home game this season. Only two of their ten home wins have been by a one-goal margin. They have been leading at the halftime break in eight of their home fixtures. The Blues have opened the scoring in 11 of their 16 home games. Only Man City, Liverpool and Arsenal have better league home records than Chelsea this season in the EPL.

West Ham News and Form

The Hammers were poor last weekend in a limp home defeat against Everton. West Ham only came up with three shots in the game. That was surprising because they had been in great shape on home soil. Away from home this season the Hammers have only taken the four wins (D3 L8) so they haven’t had the best of times on their travels. They have lost five of their last six away games (D1) so they have to be vulnerable for this London derby fixture. West Ham have scored in just two of their last six on their travels.

The Irons have averaged under a goal per game this season away from home, with just 40% of their road games making it over 2.5 goals. They have conceded at an average of 1.5 goals per road game. They have managed only the two road clean sheets this term. Six of their eight away defeats in the top flight have been by a margin of at least two goals. West Ham have no clean sheet in their last seven away games. Of the goals which they have conceded on their travels, 61% of them have been after the half time break.

Chelsea News and Form

Chelsea looked ponderous and lacking a clinical edge out at Cardiff on Sunday. They were 1-0 down until Cesar Azpilicueta popped up with an 84th-minute equaliser, but he was clearly in an offside position. Ruben Loftus-Cheek went on to head a winner for the Blues in the final minute of the contest. That leaves Chelsea at W3 D1 L1 in their last five league games, home and away, but they look a long way from being a convincing side. Their home form at Stamford Bridge in the top flight is at W9 D5 L1 this season and they do have strong home form there against sides in the bottom half of the table.

Chelsea are W6 D1 in their seven home games against sides currently in the bottom half. The Blues are undefeated in their last five at home (W3 D2) and they have only conceded the two goals in their last five on home soil. Chelsea have only averaged 0.7 goals per game against them this term. Only 40% of their home games have gone over 2.5 goals, with the Blues having taken a clean sheet in 47% of home fixtures. Only two of Chelsea’s nine home wins this season have been by a one-goal margin. Chelsea have now scored more goals in the final fifteen minutes of matches than any other side in the top flight.

Chelsea won 2-1 at Brighton in mid-December

Brighton News and Form

The Seagulls had a big South Coast clash at home against Southampton on the weekend. A win there would really have left a comfortable cushion between themselves and the drop zone. They lost 1-0 against the Saints though, which leaves them only five points clear of relegation trouble. So they have work to do and they have been having a tough time of things on their travels. Brighton’s away record stands at W3 D2 L10. They have lost all six away games played against sides currently in the top half of the table.

Brighton have averaged a goal per game on their travels, but have conceded at an average of 1.8 per game. 60% of their away games have gone over 2.5 with Brighton only taking one away clean sheet all season, which was back in a win over Newcastle last October. None of their ten away losses have been by a margin of more than two goals. The Seagulls are without a clean sheet in any of their last ten on the road. They have also been trailing at the halftime break in 8 of their 15 away fixtures. As a positive though they have scored in each of their last five away from the Amex. Only the current bottom three have a worse away record than Brighton do.

Cardiff News and Form

Cardiff got a fantastic win over West Ham the last time out in the league. They needed that too because they had been on a three-match EPL losing streak. That was a home victory they got over West Ham, which leaves them at W2 L2 in their last four at home. At home this season in the league, Cardiff are at W6 D2 L8. In their four home games played against sides currently in the top-six, the Bluebirds have lost each of them. Cardiff have tallied 18 home goals but they have conceded at almost two goals per home game.

The Bluebirds have banked a clean sheet in 31% of their home games, which isn’t all that bad for a newly promoted side at all. Their last two wins on home soil have both been with a clean sheet, both 2-0 wins actually over Bournemouth and West Ham. Those are the only two wins on home soil they have taken in their last seven. 62% of Cardiff’s home games have gone over 2.5 goals. Of the goals which they have scored at home, 61% of them have been after the half time break. Cardiff have only opened the scoring in three home games. Bottom side Huddersfield are the only side to have scored fewer league goals than Cardiff have.

Chelsea News and Form

Chelsea’s poor away form over the second half of the season continued the last time they are out in action. The Blues suffered a 2-0 loss at Everton, despite having totally dominated the first 45 minutes. They badly lacked a finishing touch. Chelsea have returned a very poor W1 L4 record in their last five away games, not scoring a single goal in any of those away defeats. So they may be a little vulnerable in this one. In those four defeats, Chelsea shipped a total of fourteen goals. So their away slump leaves Chelsea at W8 D1 L6 on their travels this season. However, they have won all seven of their away games against teams currently 13th or lower.

Chelsea have returned 21 away goals this season, but have conceded 23. 73% of their road games have made it over 2.5 goals. While Chelsea have taken a clean sheet in a third of their away games, they have gone without one in any of their last five away games. Chelsea have been losing at the half time break in three road fixtures. Chelsea have opened the scoring in 9 of their 15 away games and five of their eight away wins have been by a one-goal margin. Five of their six away defeats have been by a margin of at least two goals.

The Toffees went down 3-2 at Newcastle last weekend in what was another disappointing result for them. That is six defeats in their last eight top-flight games now. Their home record is W6 D4 L5 this season but they have struggled for returns there recently. Everton have lost four of their last six home games (W1 D1). The Toffees have won only one of their last seven on home soil. In their last home game, they dug in to earn a 0-0 draw against Liverpool.

Everton are W2 L5 from seven home games this season against sides currently in the top half of the table. Everton have scored an average of 1.4 goals per home game this season. They have only scored in two of their last five at Goodison Park. They are without a goal in two there. Everton have been level at half time in nine of their fifteen home games.

They did pick up three points in their last road game, which was a 2-1 success at Fulham, but the Blues were under pressure in the game. That win at Craven Cottage snapped a three-match losing streak Chelsea were on away from home.

They had failed to score in any of those three defeats as well. Four of the five defeats this season from Chelsea have happened against current top-seven sides. Their overall away record is at W8 D1 L5 for the season. Chelsea have taken a clean sheet in 36% of their away games and they have scored at an average of 1.5 goals per home games. 79% of their top-flight away fixtures have gone over 2.5 goals this season.

Chelsea News and Form

It was comfortable for a patient Chelsea side in the end at home against Dynamo Kiev in the first leg of this round of sixteen tie. Chelsea have never won in Ukraine before having gone D1 L1 there from their previous visits. The victory in the first leg gave Chelsea their eighth win in nine Europa League games this season (D1). After topping their group stage they comfortably beat Malmo 5-1 in the last round.

This is the second meeting between the two teams after having met in the 2015/16 Champions League group stage. There was a 0-0 draw between them in Kiev on that occasion. In their other game in Ukraine, Chelsea lost 2-1 at Shakhtar Donetsk in the 2013/14 Champions League. The Blues are unbeaten in twelve Europa League games now. They are W4 D1 in their last five away games in the competition. The Blues have won 11 of the 15 previous UEFA ties after a first-leg victory at home.

Dynamo Kiev News and Form

There is a big uphill task for Kiev then in this one. Like Chelsea, Dynamo Kiev also won their group in the Europa League and then edged a 3-2 aggregate win over Olympiakos in the last round. They do actually have some good home form against English sides. They have only suffered three defeats in their 14 previous home games against English opponents, winning five of those.

In the Europa League specifically, Dynamo Kiev are W2 D1 at home against English sides. They have won their two previous knockout ties as well in this competition against English opposition, Man City in 2010/11 and Everton in 2014/15. It doesn’t look too likely that they are going to pull off a win in this tie. Dynamo Kiev have lost just two of their last fourteen home games in Europe (W8 D4) which is a fine record. In 5 of their last 13 previous UEFA ties where they had lost the first leg away from home, Kiev fought back to win.

Chelsea News and Form

Chelsea have taken back-to-back League wins over Spurs and Fulham. That leaves them with three wins in their last four League outings. They do also have some pretty good home form running on their side at the moment having won each of their last three at Stamford Bridge. Overall this season Chelsea are W9 D4 L1 on home soil in the top flight. The Blues are undefeated in their last four on home turf since a loss against Leicester back on December 22. The Blues have averaged exactly 2 goals per home game this season, while they have conceded just nine goals in their 14 played at the Bridge.

The Blues have earned a clean sheet in 50% of their home League games this season, and less than half of their home games have gone over 2.5 goals. Chelsea have conceded just the two goals in their last eight League home games. Home and away they have only managed two clean sheets in their last seven played though. The Blues have not been losing at the halftime break in any home League game this season. They have returned at least two goals in each of their last three at Stamford Bridge. Five of their last seven games (home and away) have ended up going over 2.5 goals. Of their nine home wins this season, five of them have been by a two goal margin. Only the current top two in the League have a better defensive record in the Premier League than Chelsea.

Chelsea v Wolves Head to Head

Wolves pulled off a 2-1 home success over Chelsea earlier this season
The Blues had won four in a row over Wolves prior to that
Chelsea have won all four previous EPL home games against Wolves
Both teams have scored in just two of the last nine meetings

Wolves News and Form

It has been a tremendous season for Wolves up in the top flight but they collected a 2-0 win at home of Cardiff last weekend, snapping a three-match winless streak they were on (D2 L1). Wolves have recorded a W5 D4 L5 season on their top-flight travels and from their six away games played against current top half of the table sides, Wolves have lost just one, which was at Manchester City. They have picked up draws at both Arsenal and Manchester United, and collected three points away at Tottenham. That has been a fantastic return.

So they should be a threat in this one. Wolves have scored 15 goals in their 14 away games this season, and only 36% of their away games have managed to go over 2.5 goals. Wolves have struggled for clean sheets away from home having taken just the two. Wolves have not earned a clean sheet away from home in any of their last 10 though. 67% of the away goals that they have scored this season have been produced in the second half of matches. To their a huge credit, Chelsea are only one of four sides in the division to hold a better defensive record than Wolves.

Who will win – Chelsea v Wolves Predictions

Wolves are likely to put up a decent challenge in this one and it is worth backing both teams to get on the scoresheet, especially with Chelsea having been in Europa League action on Thursday. But still they should produce a home win and therefore Chelsea to win and both teams to score is a good proposition.
