Coral’s latest bet of the day

  • Carroll has scored in last two fixtures against Chelsea
  • Blues unbeaten at home against Hammers in last 11
  • Conte prepares for his first official match in charge

Carroll to score but Chelsea win at 8/1

Chelsea host West Ham United in the first Monday night Premier League clash of the season, and these two London rivals on the opposite side of the city will be desperate to get one over the other.

It is from this match that Coral have picked out their latest bet of the day too, with super enhanced special odds of 8/1 available on Hammers striker Andy Carroll scoring anytime but the Blues to win (max stake €/£20).

Read on to find out why you should take this terrific price…

Antonio Conte Unveiling - Stamford Bridge

Chelsea are undefeated against West Ham in each of their last 11 home matches, winning eight of them, and will be confident of taking all three points again as they face their first official fixture under new boss Antonio Conte.

Conte can inspire Blues to derby win

The Blues have strengthened this summer, with the likes of star Belgium striker Michy Batshuayi and Leicester City’s key man last term N’Golo Kante coming in. Juan Cuadrado and Nathaniel Chalobah have returned from loan spells from Conte’s native Italy.

On top of that, Diego Costa, Eden Hazard, Pedro Rodriguez, Oscar and Willian are all available in attack, and should cause much problems for their visitors.

However, the Hammers have strengthened too, and certainly have the ability to score, having done so in both matches against the Blues last season.

Leicester City v West Ham United - Barclays Premier League - King Power Stadium

Giant England frontman Carroll happened to be on target in both as well, so boss Slaven Bilic will have faith in him again.

The former Newcastle United and Liverpool centre forward came off the bench on both occasions, so if he starts this time around he’ll get more time to strike.

So, what are you waiting for punters? Back Carroll to score but Chelsea win at an enhanced 8/1 price now for a chance to reap rewards!
