Chelsea will be looking for three points to end a frustrating Premier League campaign on a positive note this weekend when they host already relegated Blackburn Rovers as heavy odds on favourites with Stan James, who also offer free bets on Sunday afternoon’s games.
There is no doubt that this is one of the least important Premier League games in terms of what it means for either team’s league position.
Chelsea can finish no higher or lower than sixth, while Blackburn were condemned to the Championship on Monday evening.
For Chelsea, it is more about going into the Champions League final with some confidence. Their league form has been up and down under Roberto Di Matteo – they have only won one of their last five games – and to finish with a comfortable victory would be a welcome boost.
In fact, it would do Di Matteo’s chances of securing the full-time position no harm at all either because at the moment, he actually has a worse record than Andre Villas-Boas in the Premier League.
However, the performances in the FA Cup and Champions League have been fantastic and there is no doubt that the clash with Bayern Munich will be on the minds of everyone at Chelsea this weekend.
A far cry from European Cup finals, Blackburn have endured one of the worst seasons in their history. After the 1-0 defeat to Wigan on Monday evening, there were relegated with a game to spare and the protests before, during and after the game summarised where the club are at right now.
The Blackburn fans are very unhappy with the management and board at Ewood Park right now and there is now way they will be relishing this weekend’s trip to Stamford Bridge.
With this in mind, Chelsea – who may rest a player or two ahead of their date in Munich – are overwhelming favourites for the win. Blackburn could have a miserable afternoon to end a miserable season.
