Fresh off his nostalgia inspiring touchline run against PSG Jose Mourinho takes his Chelsea side to the Liberty Stadium to face a still relegation threatened Swansea City and we have some free football betting tips.
So Chelsea overturned a two-goal deficit to qualify for the semi-finals of the Champions League. That result was a tactical triumph for Chelsea as they cycled through the three formations they had drilled out on the training field. As John Terry said “Every scenario we had a game plan”.
That 2-0 victory over PSG puts a gloss on what has been a patchy run of form for the London club. They beat Stoke 3-0 in their previous home match but have lost three straight games away from home. Losing to Villa, Palace and PSG. To be blunt Chelsea might be Lions at home but they are mice away from home.
In contrast to silverware chasing Chelsea Swansea have endured a disappointing season that still has an outside chance of ending in relegation. Last week they suffered a disappointing defeat to Hull City. Prior to that though Swansea picked up a 2-2 draw at the Emirates and in their last home game thrashed Norwich City 3-0.
In general Swansea are a much better side at home then on the road picking up 20 of their 33 at the Liberty. They also come into this match able to pick what is pretty much their strongest team.
With all this in mind the odds on this one seem a bit skewed. The odds of a Chelsea victory are an unappetising ¾ with bet365. Whilst a draw is 13/5 and a Swansea win is 15/4 with the same provider.
Chelsea certainly should be favourites to win this game but ¾ is far too short. Bare in mind that they played a sapping midweek Champions League encounter against quality opposition, are generally poor away from home, often lack a cutting edge in front of goal and will be missing their biggest goal threat Eden Hazard. Chelsea are unbackable at those odds.
You can't really have faith on a Swansea victory however in previous home games they have lost to WBA and drew with Palace. Given Chelsea's away form, midweek game and the odds a draw is worth a stab at. If you are feeling even more adventurous you can get Swansea win draw no bet at 11/4 with William Hill.
A more realistic bet however, is Chelsea to win to nil which is 15/8 with Coral. Chelsea have only conceded 24 goals in the league which is the fewest out of any team. An even better bet with skybet is Chelsea to win 1-0, 2-0 or 2-1 at 13/8.
