Man City v Chelsea Betting Offers and Tips
Manchester has not been a happy hunting ground for the 18 EPL clubs not based in the city.
Both Man Utd and Man City have excellent home records as Chelsea will doubtless attest come Sunday evening.
This weekend sees the Blues visit Manchester for the second time in many weeks. After tasting defeat against Man Utd, it’s time for Chelsea to face new Carabao Cup champions, Man City .
Pep Guardiola allowed his players to take on the 3-0 win over Arsenal at Wembley last weekend.
He just refused to walk up to the steps and lift the trophy, preferring to watch on a distance and turn his attentions to the challenges. They are securing the Premier League title as soon as possible so the Citizens can concentrate on their attempt to win the Champions League.
Chelsea’s last trip to Manchester actually started pretty well. The Blues were the better team for most of the first half against Man Utd and were it not for a bit of quality from Romelu Lukaku they would have held a 1-0 lead at the halfway stage.
The Blues were disappointing in second half though and few could argue that Man Utd deserved their 2-1 win.
Chelsea were similarly second best for most of their match against Man City at Stamford Bridge back at the end of September. We foresee the same result at the Etihad Stadium.
Man City have won all but one of their home league matches this season but are still a good price to beat Chelsea at $1.61 with Centrebet.
De Bruyne to Star Against His Former Employers Again
The number of players that Chelsea have out on loan has caused a stir in England. The Blues have been accused of stockpiling talent but you can’t blame them for trying to hold onto their most promising stars after a series of missteps.
They’ve let Romelu Lukaku, Mo Salah and Kevin De Bruyne go in recent years. Lukaku haunted his former club last weekend and De Bruyne can do likewise this weekend.
The Belgian midfielder has become Man City’s most important player and scored the winner against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. He wasn’t able to score in the cup final at Wembley but is a threat from long range and set pieces so looks a good price to score anytime at $3.80 with Unibet.
Gabriel Jesus is another player worth backing to score against Chelsea.
The Brazilian forward returned from injury when coming off the bench in the Carabao Cup final and he’s especially keen to hit the ground running with the chance to play a starring role in Brazil’s World Cup team. So, back Jesus to score at $2.30 with Sportsbet.
Goals the Order of the Day in Manchester Once Again
With so many potential goalscorers, Man City always have a chance of running away with a match. They’re more than capable of scoring three or more goals against Chelsea but the Blues are not without their own top quality attacking players.
Eden Hazard and Willian are in particularly good form currently so try to capitalise on a game with a lot of goalmouth action by betting on over 3.5 goals at $2.70 with Palmerbet.
If you think that Chelsea will find the net you can increase your winnings on a home win. Man City to win and both teams to score is $3.10 with Sportsbet.
