CHELSEA ENHANCED to 2/1!
Firm offers 2/1 on Chelsea to win
Coral have announced they are offering an ‘enhanced’ price of a MASSIVE 2/1 on Chelsea, to win! More details below!
Sunderland boss Gus Poyet will return to his former club, Chelsea later today looking to put a dent in their title hopes.
The Uruguayan, who spent four years at Stamford Bridge, saw his side receive a big morale boost midweek when they drew 2-2 away to Manchester City, a result that moved them to within 6 points of safety but with a game in hand on their relegation rivals.
One point could have been three were it not for a late blunder by goalkeeper Vito Mannone and Poyet has backed the former Arsenal stopper to put the mistake behind him.
“That’s the hardest part, because Vito has been outstanding and he feels terrible,”
“But we win all together and we celebrate all together – like we did at Manchester United in the cup semi-final, when maybe Vito played a bigger part in that penalty shoot-out win than others did.
“He needs to recover quick, because we need him for Saturday.”
Chelsea meanwhile will head into the game knowing that a win would see them leapfrog leaders Liverpool and would pile the pressure on the Merseyside outfit.
The Blues were far from their best in the 1-0 win over 10 man Swansea last weekend but on home turf they have impressed, picking up 47 points from a possible 51.
The club will once again be without Eden Hazard. The Belgian star is struggling with a calf problem and is also facing a race against time to be fit for the Champions league clash with Atletico Madrid.
Hazard is the Blues only worry ahead of the game with Jose Mourinho boasting an otherwise clean bill of health.
Sunderland meanwhile will have Ondrej Celustka available following knee injury with the Czech defender return to the squad a timely boost with Phil Bardsley suspended.
Poyet will have to do without injured trio Liam Bridcutt (personal reasons), Ki Sung-yueng (knee) and Carlos Cuellar (hamstring) for the trip to London while long-term injury victims Keiren Westwood (shoulder) and Steven Fletcher (ankle) will once again watch from the stands.
