The Blues are sitting pretty at the top of the Premier League table and face a Hull side on Sunday who are currently down in 19th having won just 4 times this season.

Thus, it is no surprise that Chelsea are no bigger than the 1/5 at Betfred, while Hull can be backed at huge odds of 18/1 with Bet365 and the draw at 7/1 with BetVictor.

Anything other than at least a two goal win for Chelsea will be a surprise, and we see this as a comfortable win for the Blues – especially with Diego Costa set to return.

There have been four 2-0 Chelsea victories over Hull in the Premier League, and we feel that this scoreline is worth a punt here – take the 11/2 with Paddy Power, while we’ll also recommend backing the 3-0 home win at a best price of 6/1 with Bet365.

Costa has scored in each of the last three games against Hull and he is available at a stand-out price of 5/2 with Sky Bet to open the scoring for Chelsea once again.

Finally, take an each-way punt on Gary Cahill at 25/1 with Sky Bet who pay 1/3 odds for the ‘place’ in this market – if he scores any of the first five goals in the match.

Cahill tends to score more against the minnows than bigger teams, as he has more freedom to pop up and stay in the box – and he scores with both his head and feet.
