Chelsea vs Sunderland 19 Dec 2015: EPL Preview and Predictions
19 December 2015/ 1000ET
18 months ago Stamford Bridge saw people line up as the chose one, Jose Mourinho, had returned and this weekend they will line up again as he is now gone. This match is going to be one of the most important matches for Chelsea since it will be a chance for them to move on from their current situation and get back to the top of the ladder where they belong. Sunderland will try to stop this and they will hope that their current form will be enough for them to get something out of this game.
This game will be determined by how well Chelsea play. This team is filled with players who are the best in world football and if they turn up then they can beat any team in the world. The problem has been that the players have not been motivated and that has resulted in them not playing well. We can see this by the press conferences Mouniho would have as well as their current standing on the table. The manager is gone now and for many players that is a good thing so logically the motivation should be back. Having said that, form is not something that can be turned on with the click of a button. Things are not just magically going to turn around and I think as handicappers we can take advantage of this.
Chelsea go into this match as overwhelming favorites and they are probably the better team. That being said it has been a while since we have seen a Chelsea side who are playing at their best. Mourinho might be gone but it will be a while to get the players back to playing at their best. Sunderland have been in good form and I think that they might have enough to hang on and get one point here. We are getting over 5.50 here which is an amazing price so I will be putting a smaller bet on this market.
