Chelsea v Sunderland Predictions & Betting Odds – 21st May 2017

Blues to sink Black Cats at the Bridge


Chelsea v Sunderland Betting Preview – Premier League 21st May 3.00pm

Chelsea sent out a much-changed side in a midweek win over Watford at Stamford Bridge. The victory kept their great stretch of form going though and they will celebrate the end of the season with the trophy at Stamford Bridge on Sunday. It will be bittersweet though because it will also be a farewell party for John Terry in Premier League action for the club as well. The relegated Sunderland are just going to be there to make up the numbers and aren’t likely to spoil the party.

Chelsea will be having a party on Sunday, regardless of the result in his match. They will be getting their hands on the trophy and they will be celebrating the final league game in a Chelsea shirt for John Terry too. Chelsea are on a five-match winning streak in the Premier League at the moment, keeping a clean sheet in three of those. Chelsea to win to nil at Betfair is a price of 4/7. The Blues won 1-0 at Sunderland earlier in the camping, but a Chelsea 2-0 correct score at Betfair is trading at a quote of 9/2, the shortest priced option in the market. Antonio Conte fielded an understrength side in their match against Watford in the week and Michy Batshuayi is an 8/11 poke in the anytime goalscorer market to continue his scoring streak, with Diego Costa at 8/15. John Terry is 5/2 to net in his last league game for the Blues. Chelsea are on a two-match winning streak at home against the Black Cats, and the Blues have won 16 of their 18 Premier League home games this season. Over 2.5 goals at Betfair is a price of 8/13. Chelsea have won 20 of their last 24 Premier League games against Sunderland (D1 L3), although two of those losses have come in the last six contests.

There has been at least three goals in each of the last four between these at Stamford Bridge and Sunderland have netted in each of their last four visits to Stamford Bridge and both teams to score at Sky Bet is a quote of 5/4. Chelsea have scored at least three goals in four of their last five league matches now as well, so there should be goals. The Black Cats were awful in a home defeat against Swansea last weekend and while they offered up some resistance at Arsenal in midweek, they ultimately slumped again to another 2-0 loss. Sunderland’s away record this season in the top flight reads W3 D1 L14 and they won’t have a lot to put into this game. Sunderland have scored in just one of their last six away games and in four of their last five home and away in the league. It’s likely Jermain Defoe will be playing his last game for them and he is a price of 15/4 in the anytime goalscorer market. The Black Cats have lost a total of 22 Premier League games against the Blues; only Manchester United have defeated them more times (23).
