The Blues dug and deep to come from behind and beat Everton 2-1 at Goodison on Sunday, a result which means they are now just four points adrift of Man City in third position with a game in hand.
It also means that they have now lost just twice in their last 11 league and cup fixtures since Rafa Benitez’s arrival, and they faced a side here who are in woeful form and currently sit in bottom place in the top flight.
Harry Redknapp’s side were readily brushed aside 3-0 by Liverpool at Loftus Road at the weekend and have won just one game all season.
They have also never beaten their London rivals in a league fixture at Stamford Bridge, and were hammered 6-1 in this fixture last season.
That makes Chelsea look bankers to win this, and I fancy them to win 4-0 or 5-0 at odds of 12 and 21 respectively with Blue Square.
Frank Lampard was reportedly told to look for a new club in January but his brace against Everton could help win a contract extension after 11 years at the Bridge.
He has now scored 3 in his last 3 matches and makes plenty of appeal in the first goalscorer market at 7.5 with bet365 and also looks decent value at 2.88 with Coral to get on the scoresheet during the 90 minutes.
