Jose Mourinho takes his Chelsea side to the Britannia tonight with the Blues offered boosted odds of 7/2 to take all three points – an enhancement from a price of 4/7, which is sure to leave punters and fgans alike salivating at the mouth.
The price is certainly an early Christmas present, considering that Manchester City now lie second in the table on goal difference and a Chelsea win will be vital if Mourinho is to maintain a healthly lead at the top as January approaches.
Pick up 7/2 on Chelsea to beat Stoke here:
The Blues were shocked in their last away trip, with Newcastle taking all three points and giving Mourinho and his side their first Premier League loss of the season.
Thibaut Courtois should return between the goals for the Blues after recovering from a muscle injury, while Didier Drogba and Kurt Zouma are back to full fitness after picking up knocks in the League Cup match against Derby last week.
Diego Costa will once again lead the line for Chelsea.
Stoke will should have Bojan Krkic fully fit after he picked up a knock against Crystal Palace last weekend, as boss Mark Hughes looks to improve on the Potters record of one win in their last five games.
It should prove extremely difficult though, against a Chelsea side with one hand planted firmly on the Premier League title, and it would take a shrewd or foolish punter to back against them at the improved odds enhancement of 7/2.
Its definitely an early Christmas present that we’re happy to back.
