Chelsea and AC Milan are both in action tonight, and both look set to continue their decent form in their respective leagues.
Chelsea are looking for a Top 3 finish
Frank Lampard’s team are hot on the heels of Leicester City. And with the Foxes stuttering of late, Lampard knows this is a great opportunity for his team to finish the season in style.
No one expected Chelsea to compete with Liverpool and Man City this season. So to finish 3rd, will be a massive achievement.
Matches away at the likes of West Ham at this stage of the season are simply must wins. And it’s not just the prospect of a top 3 finish motivating Chelsea.
They have both Manchester United and Wolves closing in on them, so the Blues can’t afford to slip up, as they could drop out of the top 5. Never mind the top 4.
The latest football betting has Chelsea at 8/15 to win this one, and a price like that simply can’t be overlooked.

Yes, both Chelsea and AC Milan are short prices, but given the level of opposition, they look a good value double at just over 11/10.
