Chelsea vs Manchester City Betting Preview – 24/02/2019

Chelsea vs Manchester City

The Carabao Cup Final takes place this Sunday at Wembley Stadium where Manchester City will go up against Chelsea. After recently being knocked out of the FA Cup and hopes of claiming the Premier League title looking close to impossible, this is one of the few opportunities Chelsea has to claim a trophy this year. However, with Manchester City standing in their way it will be no easy task for Maurizio Sarri’s men. Pep Guardiola’s side recently eased to a 6-0 win over their upcoming opponents and he will be hoping for a similar clinical performance. As well as being in the Carabao Cup, City remains in the FA Cup, Champions League and plan on staying as possible title contenders for the Premier League which will test their squad depth.

Chelsea are in serious need of a morale booster and a win over Manchester City in the final would certainly lift the spirits of the London side. Maurizio Sarri finds himself on the wrong side of the Chelsea supporters in recent times due to his work ethic and ultimately his poor results. The Blues head into this match having made light work of Malmo in the Europa League which sees them move onto the Last 16. Prior to this game, Chelsea had been knocked out of the FA Cup by Manchester United. Chelsea are clear underdogs for this fixture and can be backed with Bet365 for a price of 5/1.

The Blues recent 6-0 defeat to Manchester City will surely be looming over them as they go up against them once again in the space of just a few weeks. Maurizio Sarri will need a huge performance from his entire side, but especially Eden Hazard. The Belgian star has bagged 15 goals this season alongside ten assists. Betway has the forward to score anytime priced at 14/5. Chelsea failed to score a single goal against Manchester City last time around and Bet365 has them to go goalless again priced at 5/4.

Despite a couple of small bumps in the road, Manchester City have once again been flying this season and in their current form, Guardiola will be expecting to leave with a trophy this weekend. City currently sits at the top of the Premier League on level points with Liverpool, who hold a game in hand over them. The Sky Blues will arrive at Wembley Stadium having won their last five games on the bounce, following their recent 3-2 win over Schalke in the Champions League. SkyBet has City to win priced at 4/7.

Manchester City have been unstoppable on the attack this season with a huge 74 goals scored which is 15 more than the next highest scoring side. City smashed six past Chelsea the last time they met and with two or more goals scored in their last five matches, we are expecting another game filled with goals. Bet365 has City to score over 2.5 goals priced at 7/4. Leroy Sane has been in incredible form and had scored in his last two matches, Betway has the youngster to score priced at 2/1.
