Norwich - Chelsea

I previewed Chelsea's trip to in form Southampton on Saturday and spoke about their top six ambitions.........

"Two in form teams, the Blues are unbeaten in ten in the EPL, Saints are 5-1-0 in their last six and have not conceded a single goal in that sequence, but they have ridden their luck at times, there are only so many times that Fraser Forster can save them and they will have to manage today without the protection of holding player Victor Wanyama against what is a firing visiting midfield.

Top 4 looks beyond Chelsea after their terrible start, but they want to keep their EPL campaign alive and their stated target is a top six Premier League finish for what would be the 20th consecutive season. Saints are currently in that position, seven points ahead of the West London club, so a win today would be hugely valuable in terms of that particular ambition. Saints have not kept a clean sheet in 11 games against the Blues and have really struggled until recently whenever Wanyama has been absent, the defensive midfield pairing of Jordy Clasie and Oriol Romeu have done well this season when called upon, but the latter moved from Chelsea in August and will be well known by the visitors. I expect the visitors to be very focused on their next two EPL games, here and at Norwich in midweek, ahead of the home game with Stoke next Saturday they might start to think about the return with PSG, but it will be all about the Premier League in the interim and a fully motivated visitor can ask the Saints more questions than they have faced for some time."


The Blues had to battle very hard to come from behind and earn the three points and having done so, it is hard to see them being any less committed to the match at Carrow Road, where City have conceded ten in their last three starts and, as we have discussed several times this season, often urged forward too often by the passionate home crowd and probably therefore, not playing to their strengths, such as they are at EPL level. The Canaries have not won in eight starts, conceding three goals in five of those and failing to register themselves in five, even in the last two matches that they have taken something from at home to West Ham and Southampton, they have needed an awful lot to go their way, red cards, missed chances for the opposition and they will need to ride their luck to stop the Chelsea juggernaut now that it is up and running.

Sunderland seems the only good price to try, CP in a bad mood and I do not know if they are able to react this match.Sunderland showing sign of life and this is one of the must win situation.

 

Chelsea and Leicester are for a win, but Foxes cannot rotate a lot without losing quality and fatigue should be a factor here, also guest recovering Berahino and are in good form lately. I will skip this .

I THINK THAT Chelsea could fjnd it hard at Carrow but should be able to snatch a win and continue the climbing.

What are your thoughts guys?

Not certain I'd agree with Chelsea's ambitions of a top six finish. I'm sure recently I read Hiddink or someone of importance saying the league was meaningless for them. Even a top six finish would be depressing for Chelsea, so hard to trust them, imo. As a Norwich fan however, I can say we will always go out of our way to shoot ourselves in the foot. No better illustration of that than at Leicester, keep it 0-0 for eighty-nine minutes, then allow one of their strikers a tap in from six yards.

Hi Saimon,

 

I think that Norwich get pounded by Chelsea today.

Hiddink has Chelsea sorted out, and they are tough to beat.

They have won 3 of their last 5 away games and have conceded just 1 goals.

For me Norwich have not recovered from that crazy game against Liverpool.

They have failed to score in 3 of their last 4 games.

Chelsea win this easily.

 

Leicester v WBA

 

Everyone is waiting for Leicester to fall-off, but they keep on going.

Leicester havent conceded a gaol in 5 home games, so the NO BTTS looks good here.

Odds of 1.75

West Ham - Tottenham

Tough week for Spurs, with a Sunday, Wednesday, Saturday lunchtime kick off. They trailed for 50 minutes in the first, which also came on the back of a Thursday Europa League tie and the next two are derby games. United will definitely be up for this, they are not totally out of Champions League contention themselves, in this strangest of seasons and are still in the FA Cup and Slaven Bilic's first season in charge and last at Upton Park, could hardly have gone better . The club have looked as good as anyone on a going day, witness road wins at Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester City and they have unearthed a couple of superstars (Dimitri Payet is already heavily tipped for the POTY award), which might help them fill the Olympic Stadium next season. One game which was certainly not a "going day" was the 4-1 loss in the reverse fixture, that could have been 8-4 something like that, United had good chances early, but Spurs once they got ahead were all over the Hammers. Tottenham will go top of the EPL with all three points, with just ten rounds to play and a North London derby game with Arsenal less than 63 hours later, hard to think of any greater incentive and we will surely see both teams really go for this.

United's four home games against other top eight teams have all produced three or more goals with both teams scoring in each and I see this playing out similarly, neither team will lie down after conceding, Spurs have collected FAR more points than any other EPL team (17) from losing positions and the Hammers are third in that table.

Weel done for Chelsea yesterday, Leicester had a lot of scoring opportunities and hit twice the posts, but could only earn a point. Now today is the day, the very last chance for Arsenal to turn back in the challenge, but will they deliver? After the disastrous show at Utd, they have also Ox injuried, and add to this the bad form of sanchez.however they rested giroud and should come in fresh tonight.Swansea play nice football under guidolin and nedd points, they have also won here veryoften in the last meetings.Arsene is at his last chanche.odds are verg low but this is normal, but can we trust this arsenal at this odds going slightly down?hmmm i will be thinking about.

i see strangely more good feeling with Man Utd agains a tricky watford side, even if Red devils struggle eith mid lower teams that park the bus, but this should not be the case of watford.however also Utd ravaged by injuries but with that new star upfront!

West ham, very hard to beat at home and they could also fight for a CL spot with a win tonight! However this will be probably hard to reach, but keeping in mynd that Spurs are playing every 2 3 days, i will not be surprised by an home win in this hot derby.

Having watched the Carling Cup final, I was amazed that Man City did'nt win it easily.

They must have missed 4 chances that they would normally score.

Liverpool are just batting for goals. With Kompany back, they will battle even harder.

For me Man City win this easily. 

Liverpool have 8 1st half draws in a row, in the league at home. Crazy.

The HT draw is priced at 2.25 and the slightly riskier bet is Man CIty to draw HT and win FT is 6.5

for me its the bet for 2 units

Swansea the black beast of the gunners, they are doomed for the title and cannot see them uprising for the next derby, even if aldo spurs are with tired legs probably. And Leicester, at the end of the day, has earn another point on both title contenders!Dreams go on and on.......
