Lots of the best football tips experts and professionals were backing Chelsea to win back the title this year. With no distractions in European football, it gives them a huge advantage over the over challengers, just like it did last season with Leicester City. There is no way that Leicester would have been able to cope with the demands of Europe and still win the league last year due to their players giving everything they had in each game. Already they have lost the same amount of matches as they did last year so it shows what a big influence it has on the player's energy and performance.
Chelsea started the season off with a perfect start winning their first three matches against; West Ham, Watford, and Burnley. It looked as though the best football tips sites had got it right and the Blue were genuine contenders. Since then though their form has suffered, drawing against Swansea City and then being beaten Liverpool at home. In their last outing, they were thrashed by Arsenal away 3 - 0 and need to bounce back against Hull City. It they do not then last season could repeat itself again and the team will need a complete revamp. The main problem they need to solve is their leaky defense as they have let in 9 goals in 6 matches. It will be a surprise if when the January transfer window opens that they do not buy a couple of new defenders.
Hill City started the season off fantastically, winning their first two games and drawing the fourth with a loss to Manchester United in between. Since then their forms has dramatically dropped and they have been thrashed at home 1 - 4 by Arsenal along with a 5 - 1 away loss to Liverpool. These defeats will have greatly damaged confidence and will be determined not to be on the back of another hammering by Chelsea. Things should get better over the coming weeks as they face Bournemouth, Stoke, and Watford in the following three matches. If they can get anything out of the Chelsea game it will help boost the players and give them a better chance of picking up much-needed points. They are safe at the moment in 14th place on 7 points but they will need to continue this level of return is they have a chance of survival.
My top football tips today is for an away win for Chelsea. I think that after the thrashing by the Gunners last week, it will have the players extra fired up to give everything. It is a must-win game for the Blues as even though the season is still early they can not afford to give an 8 or 11 point advantage to Manchester City depending on their result against Spurs at the weekend. I can not see Chelsea competing for the title this season and I think that they will struggle to make the top four for the second year running. There are deep-rooted problems at Stamford Bridge which need to be identified and rectified as soon as possible if they want to win back the Premiership Crown. If you are thinking of betting on this match be sure to look at all gambling news available.
