The upcoming fixture of Chelsea FC and Stoke City to be held at Stamford Stadium, London is all set to be an explosion. Who will win the match is a different question altogether because both the teams have enough firepower to make a blast on the ground. However, things are looking in favour of the home team as The Blues would try to take control of the match from the start with the likes of Eden Hazard, Alvaro Morata, Kante. Chelsea FC is currently the third team on the points table with 13 wins and bagging 42 points whereas the visiting team has only registered five wins in the tournament and managed to settle at the 13th position on the league table with just 20 points.
Given the performances of both the teams in their last six matches in the English Premier League 2017-2018, it is expected that Chelsea FC will have the last laugh on Saturday. For Stoke City, it is expected that Peter Crouch and the likes of Shaqiri and Diouf would try to steal the three points for their team. After drawing their last match against Huddersfield, Stoke City’s goalie Butland is in a magical touch and would put the accuracy and timing of shots by Morata and Hazard.

CHE Vs STK in their last six matches:
CHE – W, L, W, W, D, W
STK – W, L, L, L, W, D
A 2-0 win over Brighton means Chelsea have now won their last six home Premier League games, conceding just three goals in that time. The hosts are also unbeaten in their last six home meetings with Stoke, winning five.The Potters have won only one of their last 10 away league games, though four points from the last six available has eased pressure on Mark Hughes. With a raft of defensive absentees, Stoke are expected to struggle here.
Indeed, Chelsea should make light work of Stoke.
