Chelsea vs Derby Football Betting Tips
Chelsea are making a great sporting season and comes the end of a sequence of 14 official games under the command of Maurizio Sarri without any defeat.
In the last knockout round of the League Cup, the blues saved a lot and yet managed to knock Liverpool away from the competition, right in the middle of Anfield Road, after losing.
In the championship the team lost some ground after the tie in the reception to Manchester United, but remains in the pursuit to the first places, occupying at the moment the 3º place to two points of Manchester City and Liverpool.
On the last day, Chelsea beat Burnley 4-0 in a game where they can not count on Eden Hazard. Next Sunday, the blues host Crystal Palace for the Premier League.
Derby have been in the Carabao Cup since the first round, where they beat Oldham Athletic 2-0, repeating their qualifying success with a 4-0 home defeat at Hull City and then at Old Trafford penalties against Manchester United after a 2-2 draw in regulation time.
In the Championship, the Frank Lampard team has made a good campaign and even points to the promotion places.
She is now 6th, with the same 25 points from West Brom (5th), two from Leeds (2nd) and four from Sheffield United (1st).
In the last week, the team managed to thrash out West Brom 4-1, eventually yielding a draw at Middlesbrough’s home ground last Saturday.
Already in the next, the Derby return home to face Birmingham City in the championship game.
Betting Tips and Predictions Analyzed Chelsea vs Derby
I expect a good game between two distinct teams in terms of potential, but with a quality Derby and that showed it against United.
Of course this Chelsea is a hole above the quality of the team of Mourinho, especially the one that it exhibited by the occasion in which it was eliminated with the set of Lampard, and so I expect no other result than the victory of Sarri’s team.
Playing for Stamford Bridge, Chelsea have everything to win a win that will allow them to move on to the next stage of the competition, it is foreseeable that the Italian opts to run the team, but I do not think it will hurt to the point of not letting him not score the necessary goals to win in the 90 minutes, in front of a Derby that can and should bother in offensive terms and that has personality to go to Stamford try to play the game by the game in some moments of the match, even because this is a special scenario for Lampard, Derby coach and once great figure of the London club.
