Chelsea 3/10 to beat Bournemouth in Wednesday’s EFL Cup game
Competition: EFL Cup
Market: Chelsea to beat Bournemouth
Odds: 3/10 @ Bet365
The festive period continues to gather pace as games are coming thick and fast for England’s top teams. The Premier League will return at the weekend, meaning there is just enough time to squeeze in the quarter-finals of the EFL Cup, with the first piece of silverware edging ever closer. With this in mind, Chelsea host Bournemouth on Wednesday.
Chelsea have been in good form of late and they are once again looking like the team that won the Premier League title last season. In their last five games, they have won four times and lost once, which has helped them to keep pace with second-placed Manchester United, who are three points above them. While Manchester City may be out of their reach, Chelsea will be looking to do all they can to put pressure on the leaders, while they will also want to give their fans an early reason to celebrate, and they can do this by winning the EFL Cup.
Bournemouth, on the other hand, have been struggling in the league this season. After 18 games they have won four times, drawn four times and lost 10 games, which has seen them take just 16 points this season, meaning they are one ahead of Newcastle in 18th-place. Eddie Howe’s men and the fans are in desperate need of a pickup, and moving into the semi-finals of the EFL Cup could provide the spark to ignite their season. With all of this in mind, we are backing Chelsea with odds of 3/10 from Bet365.
