Chelsea vs Stoke City 5 Mar 2016: EPL Preview and Predictions

Stamford Bridge will full of life and football this weekend as the home team, Chelsea, play a determined and aggressive Stoke City team. There is plenty up for grabs in this match and I expect a lot from all the players on the pitch so I think it will be a great encounter to watch.

Stoke City are a team that have impressed me insanely this year and I think that they will only get better. This is a group of players who are on the same wave length and they have proven that time and time again that they are the real deal. I am extremely excited to see them play this game since it will be a real test for them, especially away from home against a good Chelsea side. I don’t think they will be good enough to win but I will be very surprised if they don’t leave with at least a point.

Chelsea on the other hand will want to win here like in the past when they would coast home against Stoke. I don’t think that it will be that easy for the Blues since they might just see an opposition tean who are determined and want to get something from this game. This will be a challenge also for the home team players and I think that we should see some amazing football.

Overall I am expecting a draw here. Chelsea are obviously favorites to win at home here but I don’t think that they will be able to since Stoke City are a team that have talent and a lot of heart. I think that we can expect a 0-0 or 1-1 score line here so I will be betting on the draw. We are once again getting a good enough price for the draw so I will take it as my bet for this game.
