Chelsea come into their London derby with West Ham in decent shape having come back from two goals down to earn an FA Cup replay with Manchester United before booking their place in the Europa League quarter finals and the Blues’ solid form doesn’t bode well for a Hammers side struggling on the road.
The last renewal of this fixture, in April 2011, saw Chelsea notch three times without reply, a result that’s 10/1 (BetVictor) to be replicated here and as Sam Allardyce’s troops don’t score many on their travels, the Blues stand out at 13/8 with Skybet to keep a clean sheet and prevail ‘to nil’.
At the other end Fernando Torres was on target against Steaua Bucharest on Thursday and that strike will have given the Spaniard plenty of confidence. Moreover, he found the net when the pair last met at Stamford Bridge and Coral quote Torres at 6/5 to score at any time in this one.
