Match Preview

Blackburn will be looking to get back on track after their 2-1 defeat against Liverpool this weekend. Normally an anticipated result, but with Liverpool’s current form, it does not look promising for the Rovers. They are now placed in 17th position and certainly need points to stay out of the relegation zone.

This said, the pressure is on Chelsea, who has been more down to earth in their recent performances. After smashing all their opponents in the beginning of the season, they have lost four points away since and currently top the league table five points ahead with 22 point followed by Arsenal with 17.

Make no mistake though, Chelsea are the major favorite and with the likes of Didier Drogba, Nicolas Anelka and the evasive Florent Malouda, you can not keep them from scoring.

Rovers boss Sam Allardyce will be hoping that his elite squad of strikers Nikola Kalinic, Senegalese El-Hadji Diouf and midfielder Bret Emerson will come to his aid, in his endeavor to rectify history books and predictions that are already referring to this match as a walkover for Chelsea.

Chelsea have won the last eight encounters between the sides, and Blackburn will have to cling their hopes to a repeat performance of last year’s December game, where they won on penalty in the Carling Cup.

Betting Tip for Blackburn vs Chelsea

Majority of the predictions now are that Chelsea will win the game with a goal difference of at least 2 goals, but as you often see in football, games are not won on paper. It could easily turn out to be a more equal game than their forms suggest, especially considering the fact that Blackburn has not conceived many goals this season.

Our match prediction will be 2-1 for Chelsea.
