Chelsea fans will expect to see their team all but destroy Premier League minnows Wigan Athletic when they meet tomorrow at Stamford Bridge.
After suffering a 1-0 defeat against Manchester United in the Champions League during the week, the Blues will have their sights set firmly on a convincing victory.
And priced at 1/5 with bwin, they Blues are odds-on to do just that.
Carlo Ancelotti’s team are notoriously hard to break down at home and with three wins and three draws in the last six, the Latics will have to pull off something spectacular to get a result at Stamford Bridge.
The Italian confirmed earlier today that back fit and ready to play are Alex, who has been out following knee surgery, and Yossi Benayoun, who got a run out for Israel earlier this week.
Wigan have had a mixed bag of two wins, two draws and two defeats in their last six games, a run they have mirrored in their away performances as well, but they remain firm outsiders for tomorrow’s game at odds of 14/1.
If home fans are predicting another goal fest at Stamford Bridge, then bwin’s goalscorer bets could prove attractive.
With 16, 11 and ten goals apiece, Nicolas Anelka, Didier Drogba and Florent Malouda look likely to add to their already impressive tallies and can currently be priced at 5/2, 5/2 and 11/2 respectively to score first.
However, Chelsea fans are still waiting for £50 million hitman Fernando Torres to get off the mark and tomorrow’s opponents could be the first to be on the wrong end of the Spaniard’s scoring ability.
Torres is priced at 5/2 to notch the opening goal, so a £10 punt on the striker to break the deadlock would return £35.
Alternatively, away fans thinking a draw would not be a great result to take back to Wigan could be tempted to back a 0-0 stalemate at 27/2.
