Chelsea have made a blistering start to the campaign and there’s little to suggest that the wheels will come off as they welcome a stuttering Schalke side to Stamford Bridge.
Remarkably, in Chelsea’s four matches this term there have been a whopping 21 goals and there’s nothing to suggest that trend will be bucked in this one.
Boylesports’ 7/10 for a match tally of three or more is banker material then, BetVictor post 7/4 against the teams producing more than 3.5 goals and it’s a surprisingly hefty 23/20 (BetVictor) for both teams to get on the scoresheet.
Given how many goals Jose Mourinho’s side have leaked this season, despite their hundred percent record, it’s not out of the question for the visitors to find the net in defeat and Coral offer a tasty 23/10 for the Blues to prevail but also concede.
The same firm offer 11/1 about a 3-1 Chelsea triumph and for punters looking for something even more speculative, 888Sport price the hosts at 20/1 to cruise to a 4-1 success.
Diego Costa meanwhile, has struck seven times in four appearances so will be well backed at 7/2 (Paddy Power) to break the deadlock but a better bet might be bet365′s 12/5 for Cesc Fabregas to strike at any time.
