Blues set to batter Blackburn


Chelseas’s visit to Ewood Park to take on Blackburn (3pm KO) has become a must win game if they are to keep tabs on the league leaders, and bookmakers make them a top priced 1/2 to bag a vital three points.

The Blues have now lost their last two in the Premiership and find themselves sitting in fourth place, but more worryingly nine points behind leaders Manchester City.

However this represents a golden opportunity for them to get things back on track, and the stats suggest a comfortable victory is on the cards.

Chelsea have lost just two of the last 18 against Rovers (W13 D3 L2), and their opponents have been dreadful so far this season – registering just one win and bagging only 6 points from 10 games.

Another plus is that Anelka has a terrific scoring record against Blackburn.

He has scored 12 goals in 16 league Premier League games (five in six appearances for Chelsea) and that makes him plenty of appeal at 11/2 with bet365 to net the opener.

That looks the value bet in what should be an easy win for Andres Villas-Boas men.
