Sunderland vs Chelsea Team News

Billy Jones is doubtful and he will be assessed on the match day, but coach Sam Allardyce has no other selection worries ahead of the visit of Chelsea. Jeremain has overcome his illness and he is pushing for a start. The Big Sam is likely to stick to the 4-1-4-1 formation.

Injured: None

Doubtful: Billy Jones (23/1)

Suspended: None

First-choice shoot-stopper Thibaut Courtois returns from suspension, whilst Loic Remy and Kurt Zouma are both sidelined through injury. Eden Hazard came as a substitute and scored the equalizer against Tottenham and he is likely to be recalled to the starting line-up.

Quick Facts

  • Chelsea scored exactly three goals in each of previous two meetings with Sunderland

  • Chelsea recorded four wins in last five away games in the EPL
  • Blues scored 2+ goals in four of their last five matches in the league

Sunderland vs Chelsea Prediction

Chelsea have little to play for in the season finale. The Blues are stuck in the middle in the Premier League standings and considering that Sunderland are desperate to escape the relegation zone, I believe that there is a certain value in betting on the Black Cats this time out. In their last meeting at the Stadium of Light the two teams played out a goalless draw.

Betting Tip: Sunderland not to lose

Odds: 1.55 (6/11) @bet365
