Hull are in trouble. Not only are they only three points clear of the drop (okay, four if you take goal difference into account) but just look at their run-in! Nine matches remain and seven are against top half teams. They also have an owner hell-bent on changing the identity of the club. At this rate, he may well get his wish. Hull City are on the brink of being a Championship side next season.
On the other hand, Chelsea's title challenge is as healthy as ever, largely due to Man City's stuttering form. Their six point lead (with a game in hand at home to Leicester to come) will, however, be cut to three if Man City do the business over West Brom on Saturday. Points on the board is important at this stage of the season; just ask Galactic – sorry, Kevin Keegan. Exactly nineteen years ago, Newcastle were level on points with Manchester United but had two games in hand. They then lost 2-0 at Highbury and, twelve days later, 4-3 at Anfield in possibly the greatest game ever played. They never saw the summit again that season. Mourinho will want to win the league at a canter.
All this squeaky bum time leads to strange things. But you do have to agree with the bookies that 1-0 to Chelsea (Costa, 29', perhaps) is the big favourite here. Nevertheless, despite Chelsea being away from home, there's no value following this narrative in the usual ways. Costa to score anytime is barely over Evens, for heaven's sake. So, given Chelsea's track record of scoring one and then possibly scoring a second, I'm going to suggest backing Chelsea and Under 2.5 goals at 21/10 with Betway for my Hull v Chelsea betting tip this weekend. I just can't see Hull scoring.
Oh, and Chelsea have scored in the first half in each of their last six away league matches. Chelsea/Chelsea half-time/full-time is 5/4 with Boylesports and that’s worth a betting tip on the weekend football.
