The Chelsea train continues to travel with pace and another routine win over Villa solidified their top of the table status.
They are unbeaten, amassing 16 points from 6 games with 5 wins and a draw. They draw being a 1-1 away from home result against the current champions. That result in itself is one where Manchester City (down to 10 men) were happier to get a point considering Chelsea would have been expected to hold on after going up a goal and having the numerical advantage approaching finish time. Nevertheless, a tough game was expected and the draw isn't the worse result for either team.
Diego Costa has been a revelation and I fully expect him to cause havoc for the Gunners provided he lines up here. The Chelsea squad is so strong he can be rested accordingly and the Blues can continue to perform and achieve results.
On the other hand, the Arsenal squad is getting thinner by the second.
After coming from behind to take a point in a North London Derby they were expected to win, they lost two more starters in the form of Arteta and Ramsey. In isolation, its bad, when you factor in the absence of Giroud, Monreal, Debuchy, Walcott, Sanogo and Wilshere it is worsened considerably.
They also have a midweek clash with Galatasary at the Emirates, they will be even more taxed by the time the Chelsea trip arrives.
Chelsea will travel to Sporting for their midweek game but as previously mentioned, Jose has a large squad and rotation will be expected here. Midfield options provide flexibility for JOse to keep players fresh for the league.
I just can't seem to see a better route to returns here as a 2-0 or 3-0 looks very likely. Chelsea will be at home and they will continue to press Arsenal, making the likelihood of covering the Asian handicap seem very possible.
The mounting evidence for this pick is further supported by the overwhelming record Jose has over Arsene. Also, Chelsea has won the last 4 head to head clashes between these sides in all competitions. The other tie being a draw.
Perhaps, Diego Costa to score first ew if you can get a decent price but I want to suggest the best route.
This my friends, is the best route to returns.
