Match analysis from Sunderland betting partner Bet Butler.


Chelsea
1.36 | Draw 5.00| Sunderland 11.00

Paolo Di Canio has a tremendous opportunity to let football do the talking on Sunday, with the Black Cats as big as 11.00 for the away win.

There is ground for optimism, as it’s been reported that Sunderland players have been won over by Di Canio’s hands on approach in the training ground.

The best bet for the game could be to focus on the goals market. Eight of their last nine meetings between these sides have featured at least three goals’ with six seeing four or more.

Backing goals looks to offer some value here with at least three goals in 10 of Chelsea’s last 11 home games against teams in the bottom six and also in 10 of 11 Sunderland trips to top-half teams.

In addition, Sunderland have gone over 2.5 goals in all five of their last away matches.

Over 2.5 goals is 1.70, but over 3.5 goals (four goals or more) offers the most appeal at 3.00
