Sunderland are in a relegation battle and this weekend they will face a tough test as they play Chelsea at the Stadium of Light. This game means a lot more to the home side than it does to the visiting Blues so it will be interesting to see if Sunderland can overcome the talent of Hazard, Willian and Diego Cost to fight another day in the top flight of English football.
Sunderland are coming a draw against Stoke last week and that has given them hope and they move into this game. This side is only one point behind the safety spot and a win here will move then in the right direction. The being said it is going to be tough since the Chelsea side is talented and in the last few weeks it looks like they have found their rhythm and motivation again.
I know that winning doesn’t really effect Chelsea but I think that the players truly want to because of their fans who are not happy at the moment. This side should play better and their fans deserve it so I expect them to come out will al; guns blazing. I think they might just win away from home here in an attempt to end their season on a high.
As far as betting is concerned for this match, we are getting a decent price to bet on Chelsea so I think that is the best option. It is not great value but it should be pretty safe so I like it. I also like over 2.5 goals since I expect a high scoring encounter with the attacking disposable both teams are likely going to use in this game. This should be a good game and I am excited to watch it come Saturday.
