Holders Chelsea 2/5 to win tonight’s Capital One Cup clash against Walsall
Competition: Capital One Cup
Market: Chelsea to win against Walsall
Odds: 2/5 @ 888 Sport
Capital One Cup holders Chelsea begin their defence with a trip to face League One Walsall tonight, and the Blues are big favourites to come out on top. Coming off the back of a win against Arsenal just days ago in the Premier League, Jose Mourinho’s men are looking to pick up some momentum by earning three consecutive victories in all competitions.
Walsall are no slouches, however. The visitors have been in fantastic form this season, winning five of their last seven games in League One, while producing giant-killings in the Capital One Cup to make it to the third round. Wins against Nottingham Forest and Brighton & Hove Albion sees Walsall full of confidence despite a big task ahead of them tonight, but home advantage is sure to see them put up some resistance.
Unfortunately for the hosts, Walsall have suffered a badly-timed slump in form that could well see them coming unstuck to Chelsea. Dropped points in two of their last three games in the division sees the Blues being given odds of 2/5 by 888 Sport to see past their League One opposition tonight.
