Chelsea will start the season with a 86% performance rate, winning 6 and losing one of the last 7 matches. Jose Mourinho is back as a manager of the club, and the Blues are hoping for trophies this season. The team hasn’t made that many transfers: Marco van Ginkel from Vitesse for 9.5 million euro, Cristian Cuevas from O’ Higgins for 4 million euro and Mark Schwarzer from Fulham as a free transfer. In the International Championship Cup, Chelsea managed to win all games and reached the Final, where they lost to Real Madrid with 1-3. The odds for the Blues to win this match are quite low @ 1.22 by bet365, however we recommend that betting market Asian Handicap Chelsea -1.5 which is priced @ 1.55 and Chelsea will need to win with 2 goal difference. The team’s overall record against this opponent is W3-D2-L0, winning the last encounter in 2009 with 2-1. The most recent meeting against this opponent back in 2010 ended 1-1. Most favorite players from Chelsea to score at anytime are Demba Ba @ 1.72, Romelu Lukaku @ 1.83 and Andre Shurrle @ 1.90. The books are tired of Fernando Torres who is also priced @ 1.90 but is listed as 4th. He did not manage to pull good season and this explains the lack of trust.

We believe Jose Mourinho will start with a noticeable victory his first season back in Premier League. The Asian Handicap Chelsea -1.5 @ 1.55 is our recommended bet for this match as well as the Over 2.5 Goals @ 1.53 with bet365.
Demba Ba to score at anytime @ 1.72 also looks good, with high chances of success.
