Stoke City v Chelsea Past Meetings

Stoke’s home form has been their rock since their initial promotion to the Premier League nine seasons ago and no side has found it easy to go there and consistently win. Chelsea are no different, of their last seven trips to the Potteries they’ve won only twice losing 1-0 in their league visit last season whilst they were also dumped out of the League Cup at the venue.

However, that victory last season was one of only two occasions where Stoke have beaten Chelsea in their 17 Premier League meetings and they lost their trip to Stamford Bridge earlier this season in an entertaining 4-2 fixture.


Stoke City v Chelsea Stats

Chelsea are yet to lose outside of London this season – with their defeats coming at London rivals Arsenal, Tottenham and West Ham alongside a home defeat at the hands of Liverpool.

Stoke have lost only once in their last twelve league home outings at the Britannia and are now ninth in the standings, recovering after a rocky opening to the season left them without a win in their first seven games.


Stoke City v Chelsea Team News

Mame Biriam Diouf (knee) is a doubt for the hosts, although Glen Johnson (shoulder) and Xherdan Shaqiri (calf) are expected to return but Jack Butland (ankle) and Stephen Ireland (broken leg) are definitely out.

Antonio Conte has a fully fit Chelsea squad to chose from.


Reason for Stoke City v Chelsea Bets

Such is Chelsea’s form this season that they will inevitably be favourites going into any domestic tie, but odds of 31/10 for Stoke to win a point at their home fortress are remarkably generous.

Stoke have lost only one home league game at the Britannia in six months and showed resilience in the recent 0-0 draw at Manchester City, while winning to nil at home to struggling Crystal Palace and Middlesbrough.

The Potters under Mark Hughes are unspectacular but usually get the job done and a point from this fixture would represent an excellent result, while Chelsea have drawn two of their previous three away games and a point here would not derail their title challenge yet tick off another difficult away day.

Diego Costa, as always, represents the biggest threat for the London Blues and he has continued his fine form recently, netting in the wins over Wolves, Swansea and West Ham, and whilst 15/14 odds represent his likelihood of scoring, it fits perfectly in with recent form and Chelsea’s setup away from home suits the Spaniard perfectly.
