Premier League final day: Blues bid to end term on high against safe Sunderland

| 24.05.2015

This could well be a non-starter, though Stamford Bridge will be rocking. Chelsea, having already won the Premier League, are likely to be in high spirits, though Jose Mourinho, a perennial winner, is going to want a victory against Sunderland after a disappointing 3-0 defeat against West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns last time out.

Their guests secured top-flight survival after they picked up a point at the Emirates against Arsenal, though it is the Blues who are odds-on favourites at 1/3 with Coral for the win.

A red card for Cesc Fabregas against the Baggies means that he will miss the match, and must make the most of the atmosphere in the stands, which could give a chance to 18-year-old Isaiah Brown, who is 2/1 to score anytime.

Diego Costa, after a frustrating time against a defence organised by Tony Pulis last time out, will be hoping he can end the season how he started. With goals. He is 7/2 to net two or more. Although unlikely to catch Sergio Aguero, who has got 25 this season in the Premier League, he is one behind Harry Kane on 19 and has a chance to finish as second highest top-flight scorer for the campaign.

Player of the Season, Eden Hazard, meanwhile, is 6/5 in the anytime market. There is no doubt that he has stepped up this term and will want to start the inevitable party on a high, while captain John Terry is 11/2 to score anytime.

The Black Cats, following their draw against Arsenal, which secured survival are an interesting proposition. Will coach Dick Advocaat experiment and give youth a chance, rotate his team, or field his best XI on the day?

Jermain Defoe, who arrived in the January transfer window, has played a vital part in keeping the club in the top flight and is 7/2 in the anytime market, with Steven Fletcher the same price. In the reverse, both teams played out a draw, though Mourinho is likely to want the three points.

Coral recommended bet: Costa scores two or more @ 7/2
