The Chelsea half-time/full-time double result is 1.991/1.

If Chelsea fail to win they will be only the second champions in the last 12 seasons to end with fewer than 86 points (Man Utd 2010/11, 80). You can lay Chelsea at 1.374/11.

Diego Costa needs one more goal to become the fourth player to score 20 Premier League goals in a single season for Chelsea (+ Drogba twice, Hasselbaink twice & Lampard). Costa is 1.758/11 to score.

Chelsea have ended the Premier League campaign with a 2-1 win in each of the past three seasons. Another 2-1 victory is 9.617/2.
