It’s been an interesting season for Chelsea, and one that they might not be too happy with. They failed to land a number of key signings in the summer and couldn’t land Romelu Lukaku who opted to join Jose Mourinho over a move back to Stamford Bridge.
Their Premier League title defence has not been strong at all, getting off on the wrong foot with defeat to Burnley on the opening day of the season. Despite a famous win at Atletico Madrid in the Champions League group stages, they were knocked out by old foes Barcelona in the round of 16.
Chelsea predictions were largely taking into account the uncertainty of Diego Costa over the summer and their preparations were hardly ideal, particularly with the loss of Nemanja Matic to Mourinho too.
The Blues strengthened their squad in order to defend their title, but it hasn’t worked out. Big names arriving included Alvaro Morata who looked destined for a move to Manchester United before making the move to Stamford Bridge, while Matic has been replaced by Tiemoue Bakayoko and former Leicester man Danny Drinkwater.
A number of other men have added depth to Antonio Conte’s side, which was needed with the club returning to Champions League action.
The club haven’t won back-to-back titles in over a decade and it proved a tough task again. Morata and co. have shown their quality at times this season, but not on nearly enough a consistent basis to challenge on all fronts.
Chelsea Premier League Betting Odds
The Blues’ return to the top last season had made Chelsea betting odds a popular one among punters this season, and you’ll continue to find some of the best odds with the likes of Betfred and Ladbrokes. To find the best odds, visit our bookmakers page where you can find all the best offers to have a Chelsea free bet or enhanced odds bet.
The club also returned to the Champions League after missing out during Jose Mourinho’s last season at the club. It was a big task for Conte’s men to win the competition, especially with Lionel Messi in the form he was during their tie with Barcelona, but if you fancy a punt on Chelsea to finish in the top four this season and have another crack, head to our Premier League betting page!
Throughout the season we’ll also bring you the best Chelsea odds in the FA Cup. This is the only competition Chelsea remain in this season, with a semi final showdown with struggling Southampton on the horizon at Wembley. Arsenal knocked them out of the League Cup in the last four, before Manchester City overpowered them in the final.
