Bet up to £20 with Coral on Costa scoring in Chelsea win at 7/4

| 18.08.2014

Coral are celebrating the conclusion of an awesome opening round of Premier League fixtures with a special matchday market on the Burnley v Chelsea game, concerning Jose Mourinho’s new striker signing Diego Costa.

If customers stake up to a maximum of £20 on the Brazilian-born Spanish striker grabbing a goal on his debut and the Blues beat Sean Dyche’s Clarets at Turf Moor, you can take advantage of enhanced odds of 7/4.

Here’s why this is such an attractive bet.

Chelsea are odds-on at 2/5 for victory and Costa is even-money to net anytime against relegation favourites Burnley, so the best way to get value here is to back both happening in this boosted price matchday market.

When Burnley last graced the top flight, the Blues did the double over them. Costa, meanwhile, netted 36 goals in all competitions last term, firing Atletico Madrid to the Spanish La Liga title and Champions League final. That haul was more Chelsea’s three strikers, Demba Ba, Samuel Eto’o (who have both since left the club) and Fernando Torres managed between them in 2013/14.

At Atletico, Costa had talented teammates like David Villa, Arda Turan and Koke to supply him with chances. Mourinho has a wealth of similar creative forces, including fellow Spain international Cesc Fabregas, Eden Hazard and Oscar, at his disposal.

Costa really should hit the ground running here, not least because left back Filipe Luis followed him to Stamford Bridge. The Brazil left back will be eyeing an international recall after being left out of the World Cup squad, and the subsequent change of manager following the Samba Boys’ failure to win that tournament on home soil.

So, there you have it. What are you waiting for? Back Costa to fire Chelsea past the Clarets, and reap rewards at that 7/4 price now.
