Shrewsbury Town v Chelsea tips – 11/10 Blues can keep things tight
Chelsea look a great bet to perform a hatchet job on Shrewsbury tonight
October 28th, 2014
According to Jose Mourinho, Chelsea are “in trouble” after a spate of injuries although most would argue the Premier League leaders are in good shape.
While a second string team will be sent out at the New Meadow, it’s not a bad side when you consider Andre Schurrle and Petr Cech will be at either end of the pitch, with Salah, Zouma, Aké and Mikel also in line to feature.
Chelsea are a 2/7 chance to win the game although of more interest is the 11/10 with BetVictor that the London side win to nil against a Shrews team who are plying their trade in League Two.
Mourinho played down his team’s chances of victory in the pre-match press conference, claiming that his team have been decimated by injuries.
“I have only one day, we travel to London and we are travelling to Shrewsbury. We are in trouble because we have so many injured players,” he said. “It is even more difficult for us to go. We have to go. We now have a difficult match. Because they are doing very well in their league and doing very well against superior teams in the Capital One Cup. It’s a big day for them. We know it will be difficult for us. But that’s football.
“Every game is important. Shrewsbury is not a friendly. We have to play matches with respect and the best way to respect Shrewsbury is to go there with a good team. Not to go there with a weak team and lose. It is to go there with a good team –if they win, they win, but they win against a good team. We are in a difficult situation with regards to today but, when you look at the players who didn’t play – Schürrle, Salah, Zouma, Aké, Mikel – these boys are obviously going to have to play.”
Chelsea win to nil @ 11/10 with BetVictor
