iBet: Eden Hazard with a fantasy performance
Chelsea v Reading, kick off 7.45pm
Back Chelsea at -1 on the handicap (4/5)
Chelsea started off like a house on fire on Saturday and were two up inside eight minutes. It was a brilliant debut by Belgian playmaker Eden Hazard who made both goals – if you don’t have him in your Fantasy Football team it’s time to use up a transfer! Word is that after a cameo performance in the Wigan game, £25m Brazilian midfielder Oscar could get more game time in this fixture, and the 9/1 Ladbrokes are offering for him to be first goalscorer is interesting. Ferndando Torres goes off favourite in this market and is a best priced 100/30 with Coral. Reading snatched a draw with Stoke with a last-minute penalty, but this will be tough for them. Chelsea look to be playing with renewed vigour and confidence and they enjoyed 56 per cent of the possession at Wigan as well as winning 2-0 at a relative canter. I think they can win by two clear goals here.
The last four meetings between the two teams have see three red cards and Oddschecker highlights William’s Hill’s 11/2 about another one tonight. There have also been two own goals in those fixtures – it’s 13/2 with Paddy Power that there will be another one. Betfair have opened up a market on how many substitutes will be used in the match.
