Manchester City vs Chelsea

Chelsea makes the daunting trip to the Etihad Stadium this Sunday to face Manchester City looking to disrupt their title race. Pep Guardiola’s men claimed the top spot for themselves midweek when they picked up three points against Everton, however, Liverpool does have a game in hand and a single would see them move back into first. Chelsea sits in fourth place trailing their opponents by a huge 12 points leaving them as unlikely title contenders this season. When these sides met at Stamford Bridge, many were left shocked when Sarri’s men made light work of City beating them 2-0. Despite Chelsea winning the first meeting between the sides, we are expecting a City win.

The title race intensifies for Manchester City with each passing week and following their 2-0 win over Everton have moved to level points with Liverpool and sit just above them due to their goal difference. Everton put up little resistance to City in their previous game and goals from Laporte and Gabriel Jesus secured their 20th win of the season. Despite losing the first meeting, City arrives as clear favourites for this fixture and have a price of 1/2 with SkyBet.

With this season title race incredibly close, Manchester City will be pleased that their attacking mentality has paid off and left them with a better goal difference than Liverpool and the surrounding sides in the table. The Sky Blues have racked up 68 goals this season and are showing no signs of letting up anytime soon with them bagging 12 in their last five games. Sergio Aguero has been in fine form recently and has scored five goals in his last four matches which includes a hattrick he picked up against Arsenal. Betway has the forward to score anytime priced at 19/20.

Chelsea will be expecting a tough game this weekend but will arrive feeling confident they can seal the three points after already claiming a win against their opponents this season. Maurizio Sarri has recently mentioned his players are ‘hard’ to motivate and if they are not raring to go for this meeting they can be sure they will be swept aside by the hosts. The Blues latest game saw them go up against a struggling Huddersfield Town side and went on to win 5-0. This victory marked their third win in five games. Bet365 is offering odds of 6/1 for Chelsea to secure the three points.

Chelsea have been remarkably strong whilst playing at home this season but the same can not be said for their away form. All of Chelsea’s last three away games have ended in defeats which have come against Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal and Bournemouth. In all three of those away games, Sarri’s men have failed to score a single goal and Bet365 has them to score 0 goals priced at 11/8. If Chelsea are to score it is likely to come from Eden Hazard and he has been priced at 13/5 with Betway to score anytime.
