CHELSEA v STOKE ENHANCED ODDS
Coral go 2/1 from 1/4 Chelsea to win
Coral have announced they are offering an ENHANCED PRICE on CHELSEA to win from 1/4 to a massive price of 2/1! More details below!
The well known UK brand reported this morning that their enhanced price has already seen plenty of attention from punters and fans alike this morning, as Chelsea are more than fancied to move into the next round with relative ease.
Much of the off field transfer speculation will have revolved around Juan Mata and his £37m transfer to Manchester United, however Blues fans can breathe a sigh of relief with the news that Mourinho has already brought in a more than adequate replacement, the highly rated Mohamed Salah from Swiss champions Basel for a fee in the region of £11m.
Wether he starts at Stoke remains to be seen, but its clear to see that Chelsea will be mounting a very serious challenge on the Premiership title as the second half the season gets underway.
As with any game at Stamford Bridge, its a certainty that Mark Hughes can ill afford to take a weakened side to London as their odds of 14/1 to make the next round and win speak volumes of their chances.
Their 3-2 defeat of Chelsea at the Britannia Stadium now seems more than a distant memory for Potters fans, with the side struggling to win games, and four defeats in their last five have sent the side tumbling towards the relegation zone.
A good 2-1 home win over Leicester City in the previous round will have given some hope, but a trip to Chelsea to face a side bang in form will probably be a game too far, and there’s little doubt that Mark Hughes will be aiming to put all his resources into Premiership survival, without the distraction of a cup run.
Chelsea are 1/4 across the board to win the game, but with Coral offering the enhanced 2/1 on the home win theres more than a hint of value to be had, and the price is sure not to last long.
