2016/17 Premier League

Taking 19 points from a possible 21 raises the question, can Chelsea keep up their fantastic form and go unbeaten in the Premier League this season?
Up until now the Blues have had all angles covered and while it's early days, punters can get odds of 25/1 that they remain unbeaten in the Premier League with bet365 where new customers get up to £200 deposit bonus.
A tasty price on the evidence of what we've seen so far from Jose Mourinho's side. They have only failed to win once in the league this season and that was away to reigning champions Manchester City where they drew 1-1. Chelsea had less of the ball in that game, but limited what Man City could do when in possession and managed to avoid defeat in what on paper looks like being their toughest game of the season.
Chelsea were ruthlessly efficient against Arsenal on Sunday, recording a 2-0 victory over the Gunners to extend Arsene Wenger's winless streak against Jose Mourinho to 12 games. Cesc Fabregas registered his 7th assist of the season to set up Diego Costa's 9th Premier League goal after Eden Hazard had opened the scoring from the penalty spot. In truth, Chelsea had their previously unbeaten visitors at arms-length throughout the 90 minutes, which does not bode well for the sides yet to visit Stamford Bridge.
There are of course still some difficult games ahead for the Blues, but they are notoriously diffcult to beat at home and aside from the visit of Man City, their toughest games to come look like being the trips to Anfield, Old Trafford and and the reverse of this weekend's fixture when they go to the Emirates.
The first of those tricky ties takes place at the end of this month when Manchester United host Chelsea and Diego Costa could well fill his boots if the Red Devil's don't shore things up at the back. Liverpool entertain Chelsea in early November and they too have been leaking goals, while Mourinho is a master at setting his side up to stifle opposing teams.
Should Chelsea remain unbeaten after those two games then the price on them avoiding defeat in the 2014/15 Premier League season will be a fraction of the 25/1 on offer at bet365. So if you think they can pull it off, act now and claim up to £200 deposit bonus when you register a new account.
