Chelse host Stoke on Sunday in the FA Cup and we have free football betting tips.
Chelsea will be looking to avenge their last minute league defeat at the Brittania back in December as Mourinho hunts for his first piece of silverware back at the helm. Since that late Assaidi strike Chelsea haven’t lost in the league in 7 games, whereas Stoke haven’t managed a win in that period, finding themselves on 3 points off the bottom of the table.
Hughes is likely to ring the changes for a clash which will be dubbed as a training exercise for Chelsea. John Guidetti, on loan from Manchester City, may start for the Potters after signing last week. He’s found himself last in the pecking order in the last few years at City, but showed a lot of promise when being loaned to Feyenoord in 2011, grabbing 20 goals and 8 assists in 23 games.
Guidetti may replace Crouch as the loan striker, as speculation surrounding his transfer to either Crystal Palace or QPR heats up. Kenwyne Jones is again unlikely to feature after his refusal to play against Liverpool last Sunday.
Chelsea’s new signing Mohammed Salah is likely to get some game time after signing for the West London club earlier today. Mourinho is likely to call on Frank Lampard to freshen up his midfield and to partner young Nemanja Matic who is expected to start in midfield.
Ashley Cole may get a rare run out as Mourinho looks to maintain his rotation policy, with a huge top of the table clash with City next Monday the top of his priority list. Schwarzer, Torres and Mikel may also benefit from Chelsea’s hectic schedule playing 3 games in just over a week.
If Stoke are going to score it’s likely to be through a set piece, and defenders Shawcross & Nzonzi are the best value for goalscorers, both at 18/1 with Bet365.
