It didn’t take long for Chelsea to get into their stride this season, the Blues easing into a match-winning 2-0 lead inside ten minutes of their opener at Wigan and Roberto Di Matteo’s charges look set to make it back-to-back successes as they welcome Reading to Stamford Bridge.
BetVictor rate the Blues at 2/7 to collect all three points at Stamford Bridge, where the Royals are bet365’s 12/1 outsiders and it’s 11/10 courtesy of Ladbrokes for Chelsea to combine victory with a clean sheet.
Betfred meanwhile, chalk 11/2 against the hosts recording another 2-0 success but it could be worth speculating on one the Blues’ summer captures, Eden Hazard, to make an impact in the capital.
The Belgian schemer enjoyed an excellent debut at the DW Stadium, setting up Chelsea’s opener before winning the penalty subsequently converted by Frank Lampard and the 21-year-old can be in the thick of it again in this one. He’s 7/1 via Coral to open the scoring and Boylesports rate the youngster at 15/8 to strike at any stage.
Eden Hazard to score first – 7/1 (Coral)
