chelseaEnhanced odds are on offer today on Hull v Chelsea as Paddy Power announce if Chelsea, Liverpool and Man City all win this weekend they will offer enhanced odds of 8/1.

With all three sides favourites to win their games, its certainly proving popular with customers, the firm reported this morning

Chelsea are valued as strong 8/13 favourites to beat Hull at the KC Staidum as both teams look to bring their good form from 2013 into 2014.

Hull and Chelsea are living up to their season expectations so far this campaign and both sides will be eager to continue their good from heading into the second half of the year.

Hosts Hull have surprised many people with their performances this season and some high profile victories has seen The Tigers climb up to 10th in the table.

Going into the early kick-off, Steve Bruce will be hoping that most of his team have shaken off a flu bug that has left nine players struggling for fitness over the past week.

Aside from the viral problems, defender Paul McShane is the most notable absentee as he looks to spend the next month out with an ankle injury that will see him join Sone Aluko and Robbie Brady in the stands.

Bruce will also be keen to see how some of his top strikers perform over the next game or two as they fight to retain their place in the squad with the arrival of Nikita Jelacvic seeming imminent from Everton.

Mourinho’s return to Chelsea is going just how he would’ve liked with The Blues firmly in the title hunt as they sit two points behind leaders Arsenal in third going into 2014.

Chelsea are still without several key players with both Frank Lampard and Branislav Ivanovic out until the end of the month forcing Mourinho to tinker with his first team outlook somewhat.

One player who won’t be featuring anytime soon will be Kevin De Bruyne with the Belgian playmaker’s future at the club becoming increasingly uncertain with a possible transfer on the horizon within the next few days.

Chelsea do have a strong record against Hull in the past 20 years having remained unbeaten in the last nine encounters between the two sides which includes 7 wins against The Tigers and 2 draws.

Both teams will be keen to keep their momentum going for as long as possible and whilst Hull’s superb home form will give them some confidence, Chelsea will be out to make sure that they get the job done and continue putting pressure on their rivals at the top of the table.

Chelsea to return for Spurs superstar with increased bid

Published

on

Roman Abramovich could be ready to get his chequebook out once again in January and make an incredible £52m offer for Tottenham playmaker, Luka Modric.

The Blues have bid for Modric in the past two transfer windows but any fee they have submitted has been deemed unworthy by Spurs so far. Last January also saw the Chelsea FC owner write a cheque out for £50m to bring Liverpool striker Fernando Torres to Stamford Bridge and it is believed the Russian owner will now at stop at nothing to get his man.

The Croatian playmaker is believed to have been subject to three offers from Chelsea over the summer, the largest of which is thought to have been worth £35m. Despite the big money bids and the midfielder actually handing in a transfer request, he was not permitted to leave the club and will now remain at the club until January at least.

Harry Redknapp has been striving to tie the maestro down to a new long-term deal, however Modric is reluctant to sign an extension as he looks to keep his hopes of a move away, alive.

Daniel Levy played a key role in keeping Modric at White Hart Lane and apparently made the decision to reject the player’s transfer request.

However, one would think that with a bid of £52m on the table, even Levy will find it difficult to keep his star midfielder in the side.

Arsenal considering shock bid for Chelsea veteran

Published

on

Reports are suggesting that Arsenal could continue their spending in January by making a move for Chelsea forward, Didier Drogba.

The striker has been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge for some time now, with the likes of Fernando Torres, Juan Mata and Nicolas Anelka to contend with.

The Ivory Coast international is also at the ripe old age of 33 and the Portuguese boss could be tempted into cashing in on the forward.

News is circulating that Marouane Chamakh could be on his way back to France sometime soon, with PSG apparently showing interest in acquiring his signature after the striker has endured a disappointing two years at the Emirates Stadium.

Drogba could turn out to be a sound asset for the Gunners, providing an experienced mind who has played in the Premier League for seven years now, and still has the potential for brilliance.

Given his low resale value and that he is in the last year of his contract, the forward, who has netted almost 100 times for the Blues, could be available for a pittance and would relieve some of the pressure from Robin van Persie in his sole central striker role.

Arsenal face West Ham with live streaming from the Premier League

Arsenal are planning a double raid in January for two players whos contracts currently come to an end next summer and will look to make a two bids worth a combined £14m.

First on Arsene Wenger’s list is that of Bolton Wanderers centre-back Gary Cahill for whom the side were reported to have had a bid rejected in the last few days of the summer’s transfer window.

With it unlikely that Bolton will extend the 25 year old’s current deal, and with Cahill himself suggesting he wants to get involved in European competition, Arsenal will remain one of his top destinations.

 

Arsenal will face competition for the England defender though. Most notable competitors for his signature are those of Tottenham Hotspur – who were rumoured to be close to a deal this summer – and Chelsea, who feel the defender could be a long term solution to the aging John Terry.

Arsenal’s second target is that of 26 year old Fiorentina midfielder Riccardo Montolivo.

The Italian’s current deal also ends next summer although the Serie A side still remain hopeful that a new extension to the his contract could go ahead before January.

Should it not, the side will look to sell for obvious reasons, mainly the risk of allowing him to sign a pre-deal in January and risk losing the talented player for nothing.

Whilst it is still early days in the season, Arsenal already have certain players marked for attention and with Cahill and Montolivo pencilled in for a possible January acquisition, Wenger will be hoping any new players in January will be enough to push them on for the second half of the season.
