Manchester City vs Chelsea Premier League Betting Tips 11-02-2019
English Premier League fans have another top-four clash to look forward to when Manchester City host Chelsea on Monday at 3am AEST. City are still within striking distance of Liverpool at the top of the ladder, while Chelsea have a spot in the Champions League to aim for.
Chelsea Started Man City’s Losing Streak
Manchester City will be out for revenge, given what Chelsea did to them earlier this season. City were top of the table until their 2-0 loss to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on December 8. That was the first of four losses in a nine-match losing streak that saw Man City hand Liverpool the mantle of EPL title favourites. City will be hoping their 2-0 win over Arsenal a couple of days ago signals a return to form.
Chelsea have been in almost as bad form as City since December 8, grabbing just 16 of a possible 27 points to play themselves out of the title race. They snapped a two-match losing streak last weekend with an emphatic 5-0 thumping of mid-table side Bournemouth.
Manchester City v Chelsea Betting Tips
City have only lost at home once this season, 3-2 to Crystal Palace on December 22. For those who believe in omens, City were coming off a win over Everton. Their return fixture against Everton is scheduled for Thursday morning Australian time, giving them a four-day break while Chelsea have a full week to recover. If that’s enough to convince you Chelsea are a chance, then you’ll surely like the fact that they’re paying 6.50 odds at Unibet.
In the last seven Premier League matches between this teams, the record has been City four wins, Chelsea three wins. Interestingly, all four of the City wins have seen them hold a clean sheet, while Chelsea conceded goals in two of their three wins. If Man City win then a clean sheet is surely on the cards – and Neds is paying 2.75 for City to win to nil.
