Ba to score any time in Chelsea v Sunderland – 8/11

The former Newcastle United striker has leapfrogged Fernando Torres and become Chelsea’s first-choice striker in the absence of Samuel Eto’o. The 28-year-old striker has scored four goals in his last five Premier League games. The Tipster is backing Ba to score any time against Sunderland at 8/11.

Chelsea to win to nil v Sunderland – 5/6

Chelsea are undefeated in their last 26 Premier League games at Stamford Bridge – good luck Sunderland! In fact, the Blues have won and kept a clean sheet in this last six top-flight outings in west London. With Sunderland failing to win any of their last nine Premier League games, the Tipster likes the look of Chelsea to win to nil at 5/6.

Under 2.5 goals in Chelsea v Sunderland – 13/8

Sunderland gave Manchester City a scare mid-week and managed to secure a valuable point thanks to a 2-2 draw at The Etihad. The Black Cats, despite being bottom of the table, have acquitted themselves well against the big teams in recent weeks, valiantly losing 2-1 to Liverpool. The Tipster can see Sunderland frustrating Chelsea in Saturday’s late kick-off. He is backing under 2.5 goals at 13/8.

Eriksen to score any time in Tottenham v Fulham – 2/1

Tim Sherwood likened Eriksen to Arsenal legend Dennis Bergkamp after the Dane’s goal against West Bromwich last week. The 22-year-old has scored six goals in his last eight Premier League games. The Tipster is backing Tottenham’s form player to find the back of the net against Fulham at 2/1.

The long shot: Fulham to win, draw no bet – 7/2

Tottenham have been inconsistent at best since Sherwood replaced Andre Villas-Boas. Spurs have failed to win four of their last five Premier League games. Fulham are fighting for their lives fresh from a win against Norwich last week. The Tipster’s long shot is Fulham to win or draw against Spurs at 7/2.
