The first match of the season of the Premiership will see Chelsea take on Hull City at Stamford Bridge at a noon kick off game. The host is mounting up to a Premiership challenge this season and Chelsea have brought in a new manager to fulfill the demand of winning the League title. Hull City will once again find themselves fighting for survival in the Premiership as they only avoid relegation on the last day of play last season.

Chelsea won the Community Shield on penalties after 2-2 in the regular time against Manchester United at Wembley Stadium. New manager Carlo Ancelotti has started off well in keeping the legacy, in which Chelsea will not go through a season trophyless. Ancelotti has put tremendous belief into his squad as he has only strengthened the team with new arrivals of Yuri Zhirkov and Daniel Sturridge. Chelsea will need to make a fast start in the Premiership to cement that they are going to be in this title race for the long haul.

After being successful in avoiding the drop last season, Hull City has done some major facelift to their squad. Coach Phil Brown has recruited Steven Mouyokolo from Boulongne, Seyi Olofinjana and Jozy Altidore, while Sam Ricketts has left Hull for Bolton. If Hull starts out similar to what they presented in the first half of the last season, then they could potentially avoid relegation. However, if they start out playing what they did in the second of last season, winning one out of the final 22 Premier League games then they are deemed for the drop. It really depends on how Hull City starts out in the season and facing Chelsea away is a difficult task.

Ancelotti inherited a strong disciplined team and the key players have come out signing new contracts to prove their belief in the new Italian coach. There is pressure on Chelsea to win their game at Stamford Bridge and to win the Premiership title, but something that they are not a stranger to, check out Betsson as they are offering 1.22 for a Chelsea home win.
