Strugglers Sunderland host Chelsea in the League Cup on Tuesday, with a place in the semi-finals for the victors. The game is live on Sky and both sides will be dreaming of Wembley with it just two rounds away.
These two sides met in the league at the Stadium of Light back at the start of December and Chelsea eventually came through as 4-3 winners in a cracking encounter. Cheslea are big favorites here again (best price 4/7 with Winner) and this is probably fair considering Sunderland are without a win in five and have lost their last two at home, while Chelsea have won seven of their last ten on the road.
Chelsea’s price means there isn’t much value to be had with Jose’s men but the old favorite both teams to score and match result can give us a really good price here. Despite their poor form Sunderland have scored in their last ten at home while Chelse have kept just one clean sheet on the road in their last five. This makes Chelsea to win and both teams to score a good price at 23/10 with Coral.
Despite their poor form, it is remarkable that Sunderland have scored first in their last six matches at home. With Chelsea set to rest players, those brought in may be a bit rusty and Sunderland could take advantage early on. As a consequence it seems remarkable that Sunderland to score first is 21/10 with William Hill.
Finally, Chelsea have scored exactly two goals in both of their League Cup games so far this season while Sunderland have conceded exactly two three times so far this season. Chelsea are 11/5 to score exactly two goals with William Hill and this looks a good outside bet.
