Bet of the Day: Batshuayi to fire Blues to cup win

Chelsea should be too strong for Norwich

Saturday brings one of the most anticipated days of the football season – it’s the FA Cup third round.

The Premier League clubs get involved at this stage. And lower league sides across the country will have their chance to take down a giant.

Unfortunately for Norwich City, they’re up against a Chelsea side that have only lost one of their last 15 games.

Antonio Conte will shuffle his pack at Carrow Road, but he’ll still be able to call on the likes of Willian, Pedro and Danny Drinkwater.

Michy Batshuayi is also in line for a rare start. After Alvaro Morata’s poor display against Arsenal, the Belgian striker could force his way into the first-team picture with a good showing.

That’s why today’s Coral Bet of the Day is Batshuayi to Score and Chelsea to Win at 6/5.

Chelsea in Control?

Norwich are 13th in the Championship and they’ve only won four league games at home all season. All four of those came against teams below them in the table.

It’s hard to see them getting anything against a team of Chelsea’s quality.

The Coral experts think the top-flight side could control this game from start to finish. Chelsea/Chelsea in the Half Time/Full Time market is 13/10.

Blue Domination

As well as struggling to win games, the Canaries haven’t scored many goals in the second-tier this term. They’ve hit the back of the net just 26 times. Only three teams in the division have a worse record. Two of them are in the relegation zone.

On that note, Chelsea could assert their superiority with a Win to Nil at 8/5.
