Man City 8/11 favourites for Premier League 2019/20 title

Premier League Betting
So it begins. Premier League 2019/20 betting is already open and the odds on Manchester City and Liverpool's title chances are on the board. Manchester City, who beat Brighton the final day of the season to edge the Reds at the end of a stunning title race, are 8/11 favourites to claim the title* (betting odds taken from bet365 on May 13th, 2019 at 8:09 pm) for the third season in a row.

Premier League 2019/20 Winner Odds*

Man City 8/11 Liverpool 11/4 Spurs 12/1 Man Utd 16/1 Chelsea 20/1 Arsenal 20/1 * (betting odds taken from bet365 on May 13th, 2019 at 8:09 pm) Their great rivals Manchester United are the only side in the history of the Premier League to have won it three times on the bounce. Liverpool, who pushed Manchester City so hard, losing just one game all season, are 11/4 second favourites for next season’s top flight title. Such was the dominance of the two teams in the 2018/19 season that no other team is in single figures at the moment. Of course, all of that could change over the summer if someone else starts splashing the cash around.

Challengers a long way back in the odds

That won’t be Chelsea who finished third, after what was a difficult campaign for them. They have been hit with a transfer ban, so they are stuck and that is reflected in their 20/1 odds to win the 2019/20 Premier League title. There is a strong possibility that they could lose Eden Hazard in the summer as well to Real Madrid. Tottenham, who finished fourth are at 12/1 odds to finally make the breakthrough and get their hands on the title. But that will all be dependant on whether or not they are going to attack in the transfer market, something which they have not done in the last two windows. Arsenal, who had a major collapse at the end of last season are 20/1 shots like Chelsea. Then there is Manchester United, who limped across the finish line at the end of the season in sixth place. They are 16/1 odds to win the Premier League next season. With all the troubles they seem to have had, a dreadful sequence of form at the end of the campaign, coupled with the bulk of their squad being criticised for lack of effort and below-par in terms of quality, have a huge summer ahead with an overhaul.

Leicester v Chelsea Predictions & Betting Odds – 12th May 2019

Leicester
Leicester v Chelsea Betting Tips - Premier League, 12th May 3.00pm Everything came up roses for Chelsea last weekend as they picked up a victory and saw the others who were in the race for a top-four finish, fail to match their efforts. That means Chelsea can breathe easy now knowing that they have secured a top-four finish and will be heading to the Champions League next season. So there is no pressure on them and there is no pressure on Leicester either who have no chance at a top seven finish now. Read our predictions for Leicester v Chelsea.

Leicester News and Form

Leicester put on a good performance in a 1-0 defeat against Manchester City last time out. That remains just their second loss in their last eight Premier League games. The Foxes have won four of their last five games on home soil at the King power stadium (L1). In their last home game, they ran out comfortable 3-0 winners over top six opposition in the form of Arsenal. Leicester have netted at least two goals in all but one of their last five home games. Leicester’s home record this season in the top flight reads W8 D2 L8, scoring an average of 1.3 goals per game during that sequence. They have conceded at 1.1 goal per game on average.

  In total, the Foxes have managed to take a clean sheet in 28% of home fixtures. Six of their eight home wins recorded this season have been by a margin of at least two goals. There has not been a drawn outcome in any of Leicester’s last twelve home games. 60% of the home goals that Leicester have conceded this season have come in the first half of games. Surprisingly Leicester have only opened the scoring in six home games this season. But still, Liverpool and Manchester City are the only two teams who have produced better records over the last eight rounds of Premier League action than what Leicester have done. So that shows how well they have been going with their form. Leicester are W2 L3 at home against the other big six teams this season.

  • Chelsea have lost five of their last eight away games
 

Chelsea News and Form

The Blues had a big extra shift in midweek, as they were taken to a penalty shoot-out at home against Frankfurt in the Europa League semi-final. Chelsea won the shootout. On the Premier League front, there is no pressure on Chelsea for this fixture because they have guaranteed themselves a top-four finish. So they will be in the Champions League next season. That at least is some positive for them in what has been a troubled season. Chelsea have lost five of their last eight away games in the top flight (W2 D1). in their last away game, they collected a point in a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford against Manchester United. Chelsea have won only one away game this season against teams who are currently in the top half of the table (D1 L6). Chelsea have produced an away record this season in the top flight of W9 D2 L7 and in that campaign they have averaged 1.3 goals per game. Two-thirds of Chelsea’s away games this season have ended up going over the 2.5 goals line. In total Chelsea have taken a clean sheet in 28% of their away games. However, they have been struggling defensively recently because they have no clean sheet in their last eight away from Stamford Bridge. Of their seven away defeats this season six of them have been by a margin of at least two goals. Chelsea have opened the scoring in exactly half of their away fixtures.

Leicester v Chelsea Tips & Odds

Draw match outright at 12/5 1-1 correct score at 6/1 * (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on May 6th, 2019 at 9:40 p.m.)

Leicester v Chelsea Predictions

Draw: it’s hard to see the intensity in this one lasting too deeply into the game. Is probably going to just fade away into a bit of even parity and a non-contest at the end of the day. The draw in the match outright seems to be a pretty good fit.

Chelsea v Eintracht Frankfurt Predictions & Betting Odds – 9th May 2019

Chelsea
Chelsea v Eintracht Frankfurt Betting Tips - Europa League, 9th May 8.00pm Chelsea were expected to come under some heavy pressure in Germany in the first leg of this semi-final tie. However, over the course of 90 minutes, they actually handled themselves pretty well against a free-scoring side. They have an away goal in the bag after a 1-1 draw in Frankfurt and now have home advantage to try and close out the tie. Read our predictions for Chelsea v Eintracht Frankfurt.

Chelsea News and Form

Chelsea have good advantage in this tie after a 1-1 draw in the first leg in Germany. They had come from behind in the game but the longer the game went on, the wider the gap in quality between the two teams (in Chelsea’s favour), seemed to grow. The result in Germany continues Chelsea’s impressive Europa League campaign this season. They have won 11 of their 13 matches played in this season’s competition, drawing the other two. They also have some pretty strong home form behind them in this particular competition.

Boylesports
  Chelsea have won each of their last nine Europa League home fixtures in a row. So they have to be in the driving seat to reach the final now. They had good news in the Premier League on the weekend as they were confirmed top four finishers. So they have no pressure on them ahead of the final weekend of the domestic season, which means that they can now throw the kitchen sink at their Europa League title challenge. It means they should be fully focused on this. In avoiding defeat in the first leg of this tie Chelsea have set a new record in the competition as that was their 16th game in a row without loss. Chelsea have won five of their nine previous UEFA competition ties after having drawn the first leg away from home. They have however lost three of their last four. Chelsea boast the top goalscorer in this season’s Europa League which is Frenchman Olivier Giroud who has slotted home 10 goals. Chelsea have never lost at home to German visitors, winning six of their eight previous such fixtures. Two of those eight games were knockout phase fixtures, Chelsea winning both of those.  
Key-Facts - Chelsea v Eintracht Frankfurt
  • Chelsea have won 11 of 13 matches in this season’s competition
  • The Blues are on a nine match winning streak at home in the Europa League
  • Frankfurt have won 16 of 23 previous Europa League matches
 

Eintracht Frankfurt News and Form

Eintracht Frankfurt had a tough time in the German top-flight on the weekend as they lost 6-1 against Bayer Leverkusen. It is feasible that they had some distraction with this second leg coming up. Frankfurt have had a tremendous season in the Europa League this campaign, and they may still be a threat because they have scored in each of their last 14 away games in European action. The big danger man Luka Jovic opened the scoring for them with a fantastic header in the first half of the opening game of this tie. Jovic is on nine goals for this seasons Europa League campaign, just one behind Chelsea’s Giroud. Only twice before this one against Chelsea, have Frankfurt been involved against an English club in a two-legged tie. Frankfurt lost both of those previous ties and lost the away game in both as well. To their credit, they won their group stage in this season’s Europa League over tough challenges of Lazio and Marseille. They then got past Shakhtar and Inter Milan in the knockout stages before taking out Benfica 4-2 on aggregate in the quarterfinals. The home record that Eintracht Frankfurt have in the Europa League, home and away (including qualifying) is W16 D5 L2 which is highly impressive. They have won seven of their 11 previous away games in this competition. So it is clearly a competition at which they excel. However of their 16 previous wins in the competition, just one of them have been away from home in the knockout phase of the competition. Eintracht have lost three of the four UEFA ties in which they have drawn the first leg at home. This is the first-ever appearance in the Europa League semi-final by Eintracht Frankfurt.

Chelsea v Eintracht Frankfurt Predictions

Chelsea to win: the first leg trip to Germany on paper did not look to be an easy game for Chelsea. However, they handled themselves well and Frankfurt frankly ran out of ideas early in the second half of how to compete against the Blues. That should bode well for Chelsea back on home soil with no pressure is on them over the Premier league finish now, Chelsea win and both teams to score.

Chelsea v Watford Predictions & Betting Odds – 5th May 2019

Chelsea
Chelsea v Watford Betting Tips - Premier League, 5th May 2.00pm Three points for Chelsea this week at home against Watford would pretty much seal the deal on their top four finish. Given the struggles that they have had this season, that would be a pretty big positive for them. Watford will be looking for a win that would lift them up in the race for a top seven finish. Read our predictions for Chelsea v Watford.

Chelsea News and Form

Chelsea have failed to earn a win in any of their last three league fixtures. It has been back to back draws against Burnley and Man Utd in their last two. At Stamford Bridge in the league this season, they have produced a W11 D6 L1 record on home soil. They have remained undefeated in their last eight home games in the top flight. They have scored in each of their last seven there, netting at least two goals in each of their last three. At home this season against teams in the top half of the table, Chelsea are only W3 D4 L1 so it hasn’t been the greatest of returns from them.  
Chelsea v Watford Over/Under 2.5 Goals

Bet at Betfair
  The Blues have averaged two goals per home game, and that is in spite of them looking like a really low-energy, non-dynamic team. Less than half of their home games have gone over 2.5 goals. Chelsea have picked up a clean sheet in half of their home games, which is good. They have banked a clean sheet in two of their last three home games. They did have extra work in midweek in the Europa League, which could work against them. Not even a win guarantees them a top-four finish this weekend, not unless Arsenal fail to win on the weekend. Of Chelsea’s home wins this season, nine of them have been by a margin of at least two goals.

Chelsea v Watford Head to Head

Chelsea took a 2-1 win at Watford earlier this season Watford have won one of their last fifteen against the Blues in all competitions Each of the last five meetings have gone over 2.5 goals Chelsea are W4 D1 in their previous EPL home games against the Hornets  
Key-Facts - Chelsea v Watford
  • Chelsea are unbeaten in eight home games
  • The Blues have lost just one home game all season
  • Watford have lost three of their last four road fixtures in the EPL
 

Watford News and Form

The Hornets were toppled by Wolves last weekend at Vicarage Road. That is just three league wins in their last nine played now, home and away. So it’s not been red hot form from Watford. They have lost three of their last four away games as well. Their last road fixture produced a win for them, as they beat Huddersfield. Overall this season the Hornets have taken a W6 D5 L7 record away from home. They have scored at an average of 1.4 goals per away game, but have conceded at an average of 1.5. One big thing in question for them is their form away from home against teams in the top half of the table. It has been poor. Watford are W1 D1 L6 away at teams in the top half of the table. So that’s been a clear problem for them against stronger teams. The Hornets haven't taken a clean sheet in any of their last ten games, home and away. The Hornets have not taken one in any of their last five on their travels and each of their last five away games have gone over 2.5 goals. Watford are on a three-match scoring streak on their travels at the moment.

Chelsea v Watford Tips & Odds

Chelsea 2-1 correct score at 15/2 Over 2.5 goals at 8/13 * (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on May 2nd, 2019 at 7:34 p.m.)

Chelsea v Watford Predictions

Chelsea to win: The Blues need to come up with something but it is not likely going to be a thoroughly convincing win by them the way things have gone this season. A home win and both teams to score may not be a bad option.

Eintracht Frankfurt News and Form

It has been a pretty impressive show from Eintracht Frankfurt so far in this seasons in Europa league. On their route to the semifinals, they have lost just the one game. The German side claimed maximum points in the group stage and that was pretty impressive considering the level of opposition that they were up against. In the group, they faced Lazio, last year’s Europa League runners up Marseille and Apollon Limassol. In the round of 32, they then sent Shakhtar Donetsk packing, before impressing in their tie against Inter Milan. In the quarter-finals Eintracht Frankfurt came back from a 4-2 loss in the first leg at Benfica, to win 2-0 back on home soil to progress on away goals. Considering that each of their knockout phase opponents had dropped down from the Champions League this season, it has been a very strong show from the Germans.

  This will be the first time that Eintracht Frankfurt have faced Chelsea. However, they have been involved in three previous two-legged UEFA competition ties against English opposition. Eintracht Frankfurt lost all three of those. Their last game against English opposition was a home fixture against Newcastle in the 2006/07 UEFA Cup group stage, with a 0-0 draw being played out in that fixture. It leaves Eintracht Frankfurt unbeaten on home soil against English teams at a W2 D2 record. Their overall record in the Europa League including qualifying fixtures is a very impressive W16 D4 L2 record. Throughout their history in the Europa league and they have remained undefeated on home soil, winning nine of 11 home games. The German side are the only one team left in the final four who have never been to the semifinals of this competition before. Key-Facts - Eintracht Frankfurt v Chelsea
  • Eintracht Frankfurt have lost just one game on their way to the semifinals
  • The Germans are undefeated on home soil against English opposition
  • Chelsea have one in 11 of 12 Europa league games this season
 

Chelsea News and Form

Chelsea have remained undefeated in this season’s Europa League, winning 11 of 12 games played. The Premier League side dominated the their group before coasting to a 5-1 aggregate victory over Swedish side Malmo in the round of 32. Chelsea then sent Dinamo Kiev packing with an 8-0 aggregate success. They were given a little bit of a stiffer test in the quarter-finals as they were up against the enterprising Slavia Prague. Chelsea landed a 1-0 away win in the first leg, despite looking second-best for large chunks of that game. They were then pushed hard in the second half of the return fixture at Stamford Bridge, the Blues securing a 4-3 home success in that game. Chelsea’s overall home and away form against Bundesliga opposition is not bad at all. From their 19 previous matches they hold a W10 D5 L4 record. They have earned a couple of big wins in their last two trips to Germany, which were 3-0 and 5-0 wins over Schalke. Chelsea are currently on a six-match winning streak in the competition then this is an important campaign for them because it offers a backdoor passage into the Champions League if they can win the title outright. That is just in case they can’t manage to lock down a top-four finish in the Premier League. Chelsea have equalled Atletico Madrid’s unbeaten 15 match streak in the UEFA Europa League. So if they don’t lose out in Germany on Thursday night, they will set a new standard. All in all, it means that they haven’t lost in this competition since a defeat at Rubin Kazan in their 2012/13 quarter-final, which was their only previous appearance in the knockout stage and Chelsea went on to lift the title at the very first attempt. Chelsea’s have won six of their last seven (D1) away games in the Europa League, scoring 14 goals and conceding just the four.

Manchester United News and Form

It hasn’t been a great return of form from Manchester United this season. They have suffered defeats in their last two league games, going down against Everton and then against rivals Man City. That is four defeats in their last six games played now (W2) in the EPL. The Red Devils have failed to score in three of their last six, home and away in the top flight. So it’s been a real struggle and they look like they need a summer shake-up. They were on a superb fourteen match undefeated streak of home league form before the reverse against Man City in the week though. They were on a three-match winning streak at Old Trafford before their clash with the Citizens. Manchester United’s overall home form this season reads W10 D5 L2 and they have scored 32 home goals at an average of 1.9 per game. Their defence looks highly vulnerable at the moment and even goalkeeper David de Gea is in a major slump of form by his high standards. The Red Devils have managed a clean sheet in only 12% of home games this season and 75% of league games at Old Trafford have gone over 2.5 goals. Seven of United’s home wins this season have been by a one goal margin. They have failed to earn a clean sheet in any of their last eight games, home and away. They have conceded 77% of their home goals after the halftime break.

Key-Facts - Manchester United v Chelsea
  • United have lost one of their last fifteen home games in the EPL
  • The Red Devils have lost four of their last six league fixtures
  • Chelsea have lost five of their last seven away games

Chelsea News and Form

Chelsea could only manage a 2-2 home draw against Burnley last weekend, the Chelsea defence looking all over the place. Considering that was a big opportunity to land maximum points in the push for a top-four finish, it was another poor result for them. Chelsea have had a poor time of things away from home in 2019. They are W2 L5 in their last seven away games, and the two wins in that sequence were against Fulham and Cardiff and both of those were 2-1 successes. So it hasn't even been convincing against the weaker sides. Chelsea have taken an away record of W9 D1 L7. Their away record against the other top six sides is played four and lost four this term. Chelsea have taken a clean sheet in 29% of away games this season. The Blues have failed to pick up a clean sheet in any of their last seven away games in the EPL though. They have conceded 62% of their away goals in the second period of games this season. Chelsea have struck the first goal of the game in 9 of their 17 away fixtures, while they have been ahead at halftime in six. Chelsea haven’t taken an away draw in any of their last fourteen played now. If they could get three points that would be a huge result in terms of securing a Champions League place next season. Even though they have been leaky lately, they have the fourth best defensive record in the top flight.

Manchester United v Chelsea Predictions

Manchester United to win: The Red Devils really are in a mess at the moment with players looking disinterested. But they are at home and Chelsea have such a poor away record in 2019 in the EPL, that the home win still looks to have the most value.

Ladbrokes go 8/1 on all-English Finals in UEFA Competition

Football Betting
There is a chance this season that both UEFA competition finals could end up as all English affairs. In the Europa League, Chelsea and Arsenal are both through to the semi-finals and on the opposite side of the draw. So that’s one potential. The other is in the Champions League where Tottenham and Liverpool could be facing each other in the big finale. Ladbrokes have 8/1 odds on there being an All English final in both competitions this season* (betting odds taken from Ladbrokes on April 24th, 2019 at 11:10 pm).

The Lilywhites nearly didn't even get out of the group stage, but after big successes in ties against Borussia Dortmund and then that epic against Man City, they are through to the final four. Spurs are 4/5 To Qualify from the tie* (betting odds taken from Ladbrokes on April 24th, 2019 at 11:10 pm), but given what Ajax have produced it may not be that easy for them. Ajax pulled off the shock of the tournament in knocking out reigning champions Real Madrid in the round of sixteen after a thumping second leg win at the Bernabeu. They were at it again in the quarterfinals, powering their way past Juventus. In the other semi-final it will see Liverpool facing up to Barcelona. That’s no easy task either. Liverpool made their way past Bayern Munich in their round of sixteen tie and then had a comfortable time of things in seeing off Porto in the quarterfinals. Now things get harder. Much harder for them. Liverpool are 6/5 underdogs To Qualify from the tie with Barca at 8/13* (betting odds taken from Ladbrokes on April 24th, 2019 at 11:10 pm). Barcelona coasted their way past Manchester United in the quarterfinals of the tournament, posting a 4-0 win over the Red Devils on aggregate.

They were 4-1 up at home in the second leg of the tie at the halftime break, 5-1 on aggregate. But then early in the second half, they let Prague get a couple of quick goals to rattle them. Two more conceded and Chelsea would have been out. But that really has been their only scare in a very comfortable campaign. Chelsea are 4/9 To Qualify from their semi-final against Eintracht Frankfurt* (betting odds taken from Ladbrokes on April 24th, 2019 at 11:10 pm). Arsenal have made hard work of things in the knockout stages because of some poor away form. In the round of 32 and in the round of 16 they had to recover from having lost the first legs of those ties away from home. They were much more comfortable at home in the first leg of their quarter-final tie against Napoli, beating the Italians 3-0 on aggregate.

Burnley have a little bit of form behind them and moment as they are on a three-match winning streak in the league after beating Cardiff last weekend. In their last away game, they went to Bournemouth and posted a good victory there. But they had lost their previous two on the road before that success against the Cherries. Overall this season Burnley have only taken four wins out on the road (D4 L9). Three of their four away wins this season have come after the turn of the New Year will. They have only managed a clean sheet in 18% of their road games all season so they have struggled pretty badly in defence. Burnley average 1.1 goals per away game this season but they have conceded at an average of 1.9 per road game. So again it is in that defensive area which Burnley have fallen short the most. From their five away games played this season already against teams then the big six, Burnley have taken a D1 L4 Record. Burnley have failed to take clean sheet in any of their last five road games but as a positive, they have scored at least two goals in their last two road games. Seven of Burnley’s nine away defeats this season have been by a two-goal margin. The Clarets have shipped 59% of their away goals after the halftime break in games. Only four teams currently in the league have a worse record in defence than what Burnley have managed.

Chelsea News and Form

The unlikely hero of the day for Chelsea in the Czech Republic in the first leg of this tie was defender Marcos Alonso. His late strike gave them a 1-0 victory and that pushed them onto a fourteen match undefeated streak of form in the Europa League. They need one more to equal Atletico Madrid’s record. Chelsea have posted a W10 D1 record in their last seven matches in this season’s tournament. The first leg in this tie was the first competitive match between Chelsea and Slavia Prague, and the Blues didn’t have it all their own way. Chelsea though survived and they are unbeaten in seven now against opposition from the Czech Republic. In their three previous home games against Czech sides, Chelsea are only at W1 D2. Chelsea have conceded in just three of their eleven games this season in the competition. Chelsea will be defending their unbeaten home record in the Europa League and never before have they exited a UEFA competition after having won the first leg of a tie away from home. That has happened on eleven occasions. This is their first home game against a team from the Czech Republic since a duel with Sparta Praha in the 2013/13 Europa League round of 32.  
Key-Facts - Chelsea v Slavia Prague
  • Chelsea have won ten of eleven UEL matches this season
  • The Blues are W1 D2 at home against Czech sides
  • Slavia Prague have won only 3 of their last 27 away games in Europe
 

Slavia Prague News and Form

Slavia Prague are in brand new territory here. This is the first season that they actually managed to get themselves past the group stage. They took a second place finish behind Zenith. Then it was a victory over Genk that they took in the round of 32 before pulling off a shock in the round of 16. There Slavia Prague won a thrilling, high-scoring duel against Sevilla by a 4-3 aggregate. Out on the road they had taken a very good 2-2 draw in Spain in that tie. Their form on the road overall in Europe doesn’t make for the greatest of reading through for them. Their win at Genk in the round of 32 was just their third win in their last 27 away games in Europe (D10 L14). Out on their travels this season in the Europa League they have failed to score in half of their six games. Each time they failed to score, they lost. Slavia Prague have lost all six UEFA competition ties in which they were defeated at home in the first leg. They don’t have form against English sides either, winning just one of their previous ten. Slavia Prague have lost all three of their previous two-legged ties against English opposition in UEFA competition.

Chelsea v Slavia Prague Predictions

Chelsea to win: It’s back to home soil with an advantage and Chelsea should be able to close this out. They have done well defensively in picking up clean sheets in his season’s contest and more of the same should follow.

Liverpool News and Form

Liverpool have been pushed in their last few games in the Premier League, but even in the face of adversity, they have managed to find ways to win. For example, their wins against Fulham and Tottenham only came because the Reds benefited from mistakes from their opponents. In their last league game, they had come from behind to beat Southampton. So the pressure has been there on them, but so far they have handled themselves. Liverpool are currently on a four-match winning streak in the league, and it is 12 games undefeated now for them in the top flight. Liverpool are on a four-match winning streak at Anfield as well in the EPL. Liverpool home record in the top flight this season reads W14 D2 from their 16 matches played. The Reds are almost at an average of three goals per home fixtures this season so they have not been goal shy. Their defence has also been superb having conceded just 10 home goals all season which is an average of 0.6 per game against. However, they have failed to claim a clean sheet in any of their last four played home and away. 69% of league games at Anfield this season have made it over 2.5 goals, even with Liverpool claiming a clean sheet in 56% of home fixtures. The Reds have also been leading at the halftime break in 11 of their home fixtures, and they are currently running on a 12 match scoring streak at Anfield.

Each of the last three league clashes at Anfield have ended 1-1 Chelsea are undefeated in their last eight trips to Anfield in all competitions There was a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge between them earlier this season Five of the last seven meetings have gone under 2.5 goals  
Key-Facts - Liverpool v Chelsea
  • Liverpool are unbeaten in 13 league games
  • The Reds are on a four match winning streak at Anfield
  • Chelsea have lost four of their last six road games
 

Chelsea News and Form

The Blues have a bit of form behind them with a three-match winning streak going. However, they haven’t faced anyone of any type of quality like Liverpool in that sequence. The Blues have had some struggles out on the road recently, losing four of their last six away from home. They have won two of their last three away but they were against Cardiff and Fulham who are both in the relegation zone. In their recent road form of W2 L4, the Blues didn’t score in any of those four away defeats. So that is not the type of form that they can take a lot of confidence from ahead of a trip to Anfield. Out on the road overall, this season the Blues are W9 D1 L6 and from that campaign, they have tallied up 23 goals, which is an average of 1.4 per game. There has not been a clean sheet earned by the Londoners in any of their last six away games, which is another pretty big concern for them ahead of this big game. Chelsea haven’t been involved in an away draw in any of their last thirteen away games. The Blues have come up with the first goal of the game in nine away games this season, while six of their nine road wins have been by a one-goal margin. Anything out of this tough game would go a long way to seeing them take a top-four finish.

Liverpool to win: The Reds home form speaks for itself and Chelsea have been far from great out on their travels. Liverpool have to step it up in this big challenge and they should just have enough to get across the finish line and secure three points. Home win.

Slavia Prague News and Form

Slavia Prague have never before been this far in the Europa League. So they have broken new ground and will have to prove themselves against one of the best. In the round of sixteen Prague took a thrilling win over Sevilla. Actually, this season saw them get through the group stage of the Europa League for the first time in their history, finishing runners up. They then beat Genk 4-1 on aggregate in the round of 32.

Chelsea News and Form

Chelsea have had a pretty easy time of things in this season’s Europa League. They have won nine of their ten matches played so far in the campaign (D1). They topped their group easily, dropping just the two points. Then it was 5-1 aggregate success over Malmo in the round of 32. It got even easier for them in the round of sixteen as they dispatched Dynamic Kiev 8-0 on aggregate. It’s been that easy for them. Chelsea hold a W3 D3 record against Czech Clubs. They have not conceded in three previous visits to Prague. So far on the road this season in the Europa League the Blues are W4 D1. This is just their second appearance in the knockout phase of the competition, and their previous appearance ended with them going all the way and lifting the trophy in the 2012/13 season. The Blues are on an 13 match undefeated streak of form in the Europa League now and need to go two more to tie the record held by Atletico Madrid. Since a loss against Rubin Kazan in their 2012/13 quarter-final, Chelsea are W5 D1 on the road in the competition.

Slavia Prague v Chelsea Predictions

Chelsea to win: This doesn't look as if it is going to be a particularly difficult challenge for Chelsea. They have been solid enough on their European travels this season to suggest that they can win this first leg.

Chelsea News and Form

Chelsea eased to a 3-0 home win over Brighton in midweek which leaves them with back to back wins. Last weekend they had to fight back from 1-0 down at Cardiff to collect three points. Those are the only two wins that they have taken in their last four league games though (D1 L1). Chelsea have put together a pretty strong home record this season in the top flight they are at W10 D5 L1 at the Bridge. They are currently unbeaten in their last six league fixtures at home, winning four of those. Chelsea have looked fragile at the back for most of the season, but their defensive record at home is good.

The Blues have produced an average of exactly two goals per home game this season, and eight of their ten home successes have been by at least a two-goal margin.

  • West Ham have lost five of their last six away games
 

West Ham News and Form

The Hammers were running in some good home form in the league, which makes their collapse against Everton last weekend puzzling. The Hammers were really poor only coming up with three shots in the fixture. Out on their travels, this season West Ham have only put four wins in the bag (D3 L8) so they haven’t had the best of times away from the London Stadium. Actually, the Irons have lost five of their last six away games (D1) so they have to be vulnerable for this London derby fixture. West Ham have scored in just two of their last six on their travels. West Ham are averaging under a goal per game scored this season on the road, and only 40% of their away fixtures have gone over 2.5 goals. They have conceded at an average of 1.5 goals per road game. The Irons have picked up just the two away clean sheets so far. Of their eight losses away from home this season, six of them have been by a margin of at least two goals.

Chelsea News and Form

Chelsea suffered a 2-0 loss at Everton last time out in top-flight action, which leaves their away form in a poor state currently. The Blues have lost four of their last five away games now (W1) and so are certainly not a banker here.

Chelsea had to rely on a late equaliser from Eden Hazard at Stamford Bridge against Wolves last weekend to avoid defeat. That was at least their third game in a row without defeat in the top fight. In their last away game, they did get three points with a 2-1 success at Fulham. However, the Blues were not comfortable in the closing stages at all. That win at Craven Cottage snapped a three-match losing streak Chelsea were on away from home. Chelsea didn’t net in any of the those three defeats either.
