Chelsea can continue the momentum gained from their Champions League win over Napoli by beating Leicester City and reaching the FA Cup semi finals.
Chelsea achieved the seemingly impossible on Wednesday night when overturning a 3-1 deficit to qualify for the quarter finals of the UEFA Champions League and the feelgood factor has once again returned to Stamford Bridge. Roberto Di Matteo appears to have everyone at the club behind him and the caretaker can further enhance his growing credentials by guiding the side into the semi finals of the FA Cup on Sunday.
Championship side Leicester City are all that stand between the Blues and a place in the last four of the competition that they won two years ago and there will be plenty of big spenders willing to back the home side to claim a victory on Sunday, at odds of 2/7 with bet365
. Those who prefer slightly larger prices will be sweet on the 4/5 at Stan James
that Chelsea win by two or more while a victory by three clear goals could also prove popular at 21 with Paddy Power.
It is understandable that people will want to back the side that are currently fifth in the Premier League to beat the team that are 11th in the Championship and Leciester's away record of five wins in 18 games would hardly encourage a bet on the Foxes, even at odds of 11/1 with Bet Victor
. Even a draw, at 19/4 with the same firm, looks unlikely with confidence likely to be high among the home side.
Even Fernando Torres played his part on Wednesday night and although he is now 24 hours without a goal, the Spaniard will fancy his chances of finding the net on Sunday. He is 9/2 at Bet Victor
to open the scoring or 5/4 to simply get his name on the scoresheet and a Torres goal would likely be cheered as loudly as Branislav Ivanovic's late winner against Napoli.
However, rather than betting on a mis-firing striker in the hope that he will score, it could be better to side with one who is in-form. Didier Drogba opened the scoring on Wednesday night and he looked back to his powerful best against Napoli. He is even money at Bet Victor
to find the net at Stamford Bridge on Sunday and, if he starts, then Drogba is a good bet at that price.
