CHELSEA v PETERBOROUGH BETTING PREVIEW
Chelsea may well have lost to Tottenham last time out, but this ended a run of 13 successive Premier League wins. They still hold a five point lead at the top of the standings. The Blues already crashed out of the League Cup to West Ham earlier in the season. Prior to that they only managed to beat Bristol Rovers 3-2 in the same competition, showing that Antonio Conte is willing to make changes to the side in the domestic cups.
Antonio Conte is expected to make several changes to their starting line-up for this game. Diego Costa and Eden Hazard should be rested in this game, while players like Michy Batshuayi, Willian and Kennedy will have the chance to impress Antonio Conte. Defender Kurt Zouma has been out injured for over a year but he is in line to make his reappearance here. Midfielders Oscar and John Mikel Obi have packed their bags and left Stamford Bridge for big-money moves to China.
Peterborough are hoping for yet another promotion in the Football League this season as they currently sit just outside the play-off places, one point behind sixth placed Fleetwood Town. Recent form has seen the Posh go seven matches unbeaten, although they do come into this match on the back of three consecutive draws against Gillingham, Coventry and Scunthorpe. They score plenty of goals and are amongst League One’s top scorers this term with 38 in 25 matches.
Peterborough will be without defender Jack Baldwin, who had a knee operation at the start of December. In a 4-3-1-2 formation, Shaquille Coulthirst and Tom Nichols are likely to start upfront with Marcus Maddison in the number ten role.
