Chelsea Preview – Comfortable cup victory for Lampard’s Blues?

Frank Lampard’s Chelsea will be hoping to hit back at the first time of asking after last Sunday’s disappointing home defeat to Liverpool. The Blues were second best throughout, with a second-half Sadio Mane brace giving Jurgen Klopp’s Reds a deserved 2-0 away victory.

However, Chelsea kicked off their season with a solid 3-1 away win at Brighton & Hove Albion. New boys Timo Werner and Kai Havertz started, with Jorginho, Reece James and Kurt Zouma getting the goals at the Amex Stadium.

Our betting prediction:
Chelsea to score 4+ goals

(odds taken 1718 GMT, Tuesday 22 September)

Chelsea, who reached last term’s Emirates FA Cup final, will be looking to go far in all competitions this season; they certainly have the squad to fight on all fronts. The London side have a good record in this competition over the years, with only Liverpool and Manchester City winning more EFL Cups to date.

Can Lampard’s boys bounce back from defeat and secure an easy win in the Carabao Cup in midweek?

Barnsley Preview – Tykes to crash to a heavy defeat in the capital?

Gerhard Struber’s Barnsley could face another fierce fight for survival in the Championship this season. The Tykes survived by the skin of their teeth last term by winning their last two games.

The Yorkshire club have made a sluggish start to their 2020-21 league campaign, losing both of their Championship matches thus far. Barnsley started with a 1-0 home loss to Luton Town. Then last weekend, Struber’s side were beaten 2-0 by Reading at the Madejski Stadium.

Despite their poor start in the league, Barnsley have won two out of two in the League Cup. A Cauley Woodrow goal was enough to give the Tykes a 1-0 win over Nottingham Forest at Oakwell in round one. Barnsley then won at Middlesbrough, with Patrick Schmidt and Jordan Williams netting in the 2-0 victory at the Riverside Stadium.

Cup ties do not get much harder these days than a trip to Stamford Bridge to play Frank Lampard’s superstars. The bookies are not giving the Championship team much hope, pricing them at 14/1 to cause an upset in west London.


Chelsea vs Barnsley Betting Advice

Chelsea will be out for blood after last weekend’s league loss to Liverpool. Lampard will no doubt chop and change his starting eleven for this one, but the Blues have world-class quality all the way through their superstar squad. In truth, this could be a long night for Barnsley.


Key Facts – Chelsea vs Barnsley Betting Tip

  • These two have not met since 2008, with the Tykes winning that one 1-0 at Oakwell
  • Chelsea have scored ten times in the last three meetings between the pair at the Bridge
  • You have to go all the way back to 1983 for Barnsley’s last victory at Chelsea


Barnsley actually won the last meeting between two in the FA Cup back in 2008, but Chelsea won each of the previous three, scoring 13 times in the process. We fancy another big Chelsea win in this one. Take a look at Unibet’s tempting price of 33/10 for the home team to win -3.

Tammy Abraham is likely to get a run out in midweek, and the England international will be desperate to impress his boss. You can get 7/2 for Abraham to score two or more goals.
