The Swans fans will have a chance to see the Blues this weekend as Chelsea makes the trip to Wales to play what should be quite an amazing game. Neither team have much to play for other than pride but there will be a lot of that on the line in this game since Swansea will want to win in front of their home fans while Chelsea will want to prove that they are not a lost cause.

Last weekend saw the debut of Pato for Chelsea and I think that this can lead to good things for the Blues. Diego Costa has problems and have a solid number two striker is important and Pato is as good as it get in my opinion. You might be wondering what I am going on, but for those who remember what he was at AC Milan will have a smile on their face seeing him play in Europe again. I think it is very likely he will score this weekend and I think that putting money on that is a good option and a very profitable bet.

Another bet which might be profitable is over 2.5 goals since neither side are playing well defensively. Chelsea have a shaky pairing with many doubts over Gary Cahill while Swansea might get exploited by the likes of Willian and Pato. We are getting the right price and I think taking it is a good option.

Finally, I think that betting on Chelsea to win is a good bet. The Blues are getting better week by week in my opinion and we are getting even money on them which is very good in my opinion. Chelsea are the better side and even away from home they get there more times than they don’t so it is value. 

Pick:
Pato to Score, Chelsea to Win, Over 2.5 Goals
