Hull v Chelsea
Saturday 3pm BST
With both teams struggling this could be tighter than usual. We’ll back the Under 2.5 goals at 2.07 with Bet365.
Hull host Chelsea this Saturday and desperately need a win. They’ve been hammered by the fixture with losses to Man United, Arsenal and Liverpool in their last 4 matches after opening the season with 2 wins. Chelsea also need the 3 points after back-to-back losses to Liverpool and Arsenal. Last week’s 3-0 loss at the Emirates was particularly disappointing given their recent excellent record against Arsenal. Conte finds himself under some pressure which was a little unexpected this early in his tenure.
The trip to the KC Stadium couldn’t come at a better time for Chelsea as they have an imposing recent record over Hull. Played 8, Won 6, Drawn 2 – 20 points from a possible 24.
We’ve seen a first-half goal in 6 of the 8 recent matches with Chelsea opening the scoring on the last 4 occasions. We’ve seen Under 2.5 goals in 5 of the 8 matches including 4 of the last 5.
Eden Hazard has owned Hull in recent seasons. He’s a $6.00 chance to score first again this weekend.
