Chelsea v Man City: Betting Preview

Pep Guardiola takes his Man City side south to Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening, where they’ll take on Chelsea in their 1st meeting of the 2018-19 Premier League season.

Online bookmakers offer Man City as the favourites, and as they beat Chelsea in both of last season’s fixtures, and are unbeaten this season, it’s not surprising Man City are expected to win.

Historically Chelsea have had more success when these sides meet, winning 24 of 42 Premier League fixtures, however there has been a major role reversal in the past few seasons.

Man City beat Chelsea twice last season as well as the FA Community Shield back in August, which means that Chelsea have beaten Man City in any competition since April 2017.

Chelsea had been playing fairly well this season and remained unbeaten until slip-ups against Spurs and Wolves ruined that for Sarri and his attempts to get Chelsea playing his way.

Man City will therefore be even more determined to remain unbeaten and take another 3 points on Saturday - especially after defeating Watford 2-1 at Vicarage Road on Tuesday night.

Before Chelsea v Man City kicks-off, we've taken a look at how each side's been performing of late, as well as if there are any player injuries that could affect you betting the match.

Having suffered their first defeat of the season to Spurs, Chelsea secured a 2-0 victory against Fulham but then lost 2-1 away to Wolves, and dropped to 4th place in the Premier League table.

Sarri won't be happy that his side surrendered a one goal lead against Wolves in midweek but could be due to the fact that they've played 5 matches in 2 weeks.

This will no doubt put additional pressure on the squad, however they then have, what they hope will be less challenging fixtures in Brighton and Leicester in the run up to Christmas.

Taking all 3 points would be amazing for Chelsea, and although they'd love to inflict Man City's first loss of the season, a win on Saturday may be too much to ask from Maurizio Sarri’s men.

Luckily Chelsea don’t have too many injured players to contend with. Moses is expected to be back in time and so Barkley and van Ginkel are the only players who are doubtful.

If Chelsea regain their form they'll certainly give Man City a run for their money, but they’ll probably struggle to take all 3 points from a team many consider invincible.

What can we say and the side that online bookmakers see as favourites to win the 2018-19 Premier League title (best odds on Man City: 1/4 at Betfred.com).

Man City are still unbeaten this season, and come into this clash on the back of yet another victory away to Watford, which saw them further cement their place at the top of the table.

Although Man City are probably expected to beat Chelsea, Sarri’s men always pose a threat to Pep Guardiola’s side, and could easily be the team that end their winning run.

Especially as Man City could be without leading scorer Sergio Aguero, who is a doubt for the fixture having suffered from muscle fatigue recently and also missing the midweek match.

Apart from Aguero, Guardiola doesn't have too many major injury worries, but Zinchenko is looking doubtful, and Mendy, de Bruyne, Bravo and Mangala have also been ruled out.

A win for Man City at Stamford Bridge would put them in an even stronger position in the league table, as they should also win their next matches against Everton and Crystal Palace.
