Preview:
Chelsea and Sunderland meet at Stamford Bridge, in a match for the 17th round of the Premier League. At this stadium, the head‑to‑head history favours the home team, since they have a record of 3 wins and 1 loss in the last 4 matches. Sure enough, the last time these teams met at this stadium, on 24‑05‑2015, in a match for the Premier League, Chelsea won by (3‑1). The goals of the match were scored by Diego Costa (37' ) and L. Rémy (70' and 88' ), for Chelsea, and by S. Fletcher (26' ), for Sunderland. The home advantage may play an important role in this match , since Chelsea presents significant differences between home and away results.

Analysis of Chelsea

The home team is currently in the 16th position of the league, with 15 points won, after 4 wins, 3 draws and 9 losses. In the penultimate match, they lost in a home match against AFC Bournemouth, by (0‑1). In the last match, they lost in an away match against Leicester City, by (2‑1). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 3 wins, 5 draws and 7 losses in away matches, with 19 goals scored and 21 conceded; against 7 wins, 3 draws and 5 losses at their stadium, with 24 goals scored and 17 conceded. In the last 8 home league matches Chelsea has a record of 3 wins, 1 draw and 4 losses, so they have won 10 points out of 24 possible. In their home league matches the most frequent result at half‑time was the 0‑0 (4 out of 8 matches). Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 16 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 8 times and have never been able to turn the score around.

Champions Chelsea are going through hard times in the Premier League this season, despite having qualified for the 8th finals of the Champions League. Mourinho’s team is very close to the bottom of the standing table and has only won 4 matches in 16 rounds, so if they lose this match they may fall into the relegation zone. Mourinho should use the same team that lost in the last round against Leicester, with the possible exception of Éden Hazard, who is recovering from physical problems and is in doubt for this match.

Confirmed Lineup: T. Courtois, K. Zouma, B. Ivanović, J. Terry, Azpilicueta, Oscar, Willian, Pedro, N. Matić, Fàbregas, Diego Costa.
Coach: G. Hiddink.

Analysis of Sunderland

The away team is currently in the 19th position of the league, with 12 points won, after 3 wins, 3 draws and 10 losses. In the penultimate match, they lost in an away match against Arsenal, by (3‑1). In the last match, they lost in a home match against Watford, by (0‑1). This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 4 wins, 1 draw and 10 losses in away matches, with 17 goals scored and 33 conceded; against 5 wins, 3 draws and 7 losses at their stadium, with 20 goals scored and 25 conceded. In the last 8 away league matches Sunderland has a record of 1 win, 1 draw and 6 losses, so they have won 4 points out of 24 possible. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 16 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 11 times and have never been able to turn the score around. In the last 9 away matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have scored 3 of their 8 goals between minutes (46'‑60').

Sunderland is struggling at the bottom of the league table, as in the last season. However, they have an opportunity to take advantage of Chelsea’s problems and escape the relegation zone. However, they are also going through a few problems of their own and have only won 3 matches in 16 rounds. Coach Sam Allardyce should use the same team that played in the last round and cannot count on Larsson, who has a knee injury and should only come back to the team in 2016.

Confirmed Lineup: C. Pantilimon, J. O'Shea, B. Jones, S. Coates, P. van Aanholt, Y. Kaboul, D. Watmore, J. Rodwell, Y. M'Vila, J. Defoe, O. Toivonen.
Coach: S. Allardyce.

Betting suggestion:

Chelsea has a superior squad and the home advantage, so they shouldn’t have many problems winning this match against a much weaker team. Mourinho needs a positive result and a good exhibition to recover the team’s motivational levels, so he should organize his team to get a comfortable win. Therefore, the Over 1,5 goals is of good value, since Chelsea should score more than one goal in this match.
