Competition: Premier League
Market: Chelsea to finish top-six
Odds: 7/2 @ Betfair
Chelsea impressive came from behind to win away to Southampton in the Premier League to pick up a valuable three points for their pursuit of a European spot. The Blues have amassed 21 points from their last 11 league games while remaining unbeaten, and are narrowing the deficit to the top-six with plenty of games remaining.
Currently 11th in the Premier League table after 27 games, the defending champions are finally recovering after a woeful start to the season. Chelsea have shone under interim manager Guus Hiddink, and are now believing they can finish in a coveted European spot to ensure they have continental football in 2016/17.
Seventh or above would seal a place in the Europa League providing an outsider doesn’t steal their spot by winning a domestic cup, but Chelsea still have to play their part by maintaining their fine form. Victory in their next Premier League game could see them just four points adrift with 30 still to play for.
And with the Londoners enjoying the longest unbeaten run of all the teams in the league, there’s little reason why they can’t achieve their goal of reaching Europe. They can still make the Champions League if they were to win in this campaign, but Betfair are giving odds of 7/2 for the Blues to finish in the top-six come May.
