Across their previous five games, three produced over 2.5 goals and four saw both sides netting goals.

In their previous match, Chelsea met Manchester City on Thursday and it finished in a disappointing  0:1 defeat at home. The club is currently on a streak of two games without any victories, suffering 1 loss and registering 1 draw. The home crowd, usually referred to as the “12th player”, have failed to significantly impact Chelsea’s recent ten meetings, as they ended in 5 home triumphs and 3 away wins. The result was a draw in just two of the outfit’s most recent 10 clashes. None of the last five clashes featured over 2.5 goals, with one witnessing goals at both ends of the field. The Blues’ defensive efforts proved enough to limit the opposition to no goals in one of these and they failed to score on their own in three. The team’s last five outings produced a relatively low amount of goals with 1.6.
