Reigning Premier League champions Chelsea got off to a rather stuttering start in the defence of their crown with a 2-3 defeat at the hands of Burnley – a game in which they had two men sent off.
But they returned to form with a bang against Tottenham, and a 2-1 victory was well deserved at Wembley Stadium.
So the Blues will return to their Stamford Bridge home full of confidence on Sunday when they take on Everton.
And Paddy Power are on board. They are offering new customers huge enhanced odds of 20/1 that Chelsea will secure their second straight victory of the campaign against the Toffees.
There are no smoke and mirrors here, this enhanced deal is exactly as it sounds: back Chelsea to beat Everton, and if they do so by any scoreline then your bet wins.
There are caveats, of course. The offer is only available to new Paddy Power customers, and you will have to sign up for a new player account and make a deposit of £5 or more using any payment method but Skrill or Neteller before you can get involved (the match kicks off on Sunday August 27 at 13:30 GMT).
There is a maximum stake limit of £1 in place on this enhanced deal, and this must be placed using the Power Play Plus price listed on their site. Only single bets are valid – you can’t include Chelsea as part of a multiple or accumulator, nor can you cash out in-game to claim the enhanced winnings.
Your wager will be paid out in cash based upon the closing market odds – Chelsea are currently a best price of 1/2 to claim victory – with the enhanced part settled in free bet tokens that will be added to your account instantly.
The free bets are valid for 30 days only from Sunday, so make sure you use them wisely!
All of the signs suggest this enhanced offer from Paddy Power has a great chance of landing. Chelsea will nearly be back to full strength with Cesc Fabregas and Pedro retuning from suspension and injury, while Everton will be without Morgan Schneiderlin, who was sent off in his side’s 1-1 draw with Manchester City.
Chelsea were outstanding at their Stamford Bridge home last season, winning 17 of their 19 games played, so this 20/1 deal from Paddy Power certainly looks worth following in.
