Man City v Chelsea: Betting Preview
Chelsea head North to the Etihad Stadium this Sunday afternoon to face Man City in what will be a crucial match for Maurizio Sarri’s side and their attempts to secure a top 4 position.
Having lost 2 of their last 3 Premier League fixtures, Chelsea really need all 3 points, however, bookmakers offer Man City as favourites, even though Chelsea won the last time they met.
A win for Chelsea would give the London side a much needed boost before they face Spurs in their next outing, while a win for Man City could see them take the top spot from Liverpool.
Although bookmakers offer Pep Guardiola’s side as the favourites, each side has won 3 of the last 6 Premier League matches where they met, and this one could go either way.
In the lead up to Man City v Chelsea, we've taken a look at both team’s recent performances, and any player injuries that could affect either managers match preparations.
Guardiola’s Man City come into the Chelsea match sitting in 1st place in the Premier League table following their 2-0 away to Everton on Wednesday evening.
With 0 points separating them from 2nd placed Liverpool, a win would see Man City prevent Jürgen Klopp’s side from regaining top spot who've only managed draws their last 2 fixtures.
Man City also bagged a 3-1 victory against Arsenal last weekend, claiming some much needed points after their disastrous loss to Newcastle in their previous Premier League outing.
If they can beat Chelsea, they'll then face West Ham, Bournemouth and Watford, and they should easily take victories in all 3 putting them in an extremely strong position in the title race.
Fortunately, there are no massive injury concerns, with only a few players set to miss the match.
Vincent Kompany and Claudio Bravo have definitely ruled out, but Benjamin Mendy could be back in time to face Chelsea on Sunday if he can recover from his knee injury.
Despite putting 5 past Huddersfield last weekend Chelsea haven’t been having such a good run of late, and come into this key fixture sitting in 4th place in the Premier League table.
They may be 12 points behind Man City, but they’re only 2 points ahead of 5th place Man Utd following their resurgence under Solshkjaer, and a loss could see them drop out of the top 4.
Sarri’s men have only won 2 of their last 5 Premier League matches, and having suffered 2 bad losses to Arsenal and Bournemouth, they returned to form with a 5-0 victory over Huddersfield.
A victory over Man City at the Etihad on Sunday would put Chelsea in a much better position in the table, as they've also got to play 3rd placed Spurs in their next outing on February 28th.
Luckily Sarri doesn’t have any major injury issues to worry about at the moment, with only Marco van Ginkel set to miss the match due to his ongoing ACL knee injury.
Man City are expected to beat Chelsea, but if Eden Hazard is on form and the team are playing well, there’s absolutely no reason why they can’t come away from the Etihad with all 3 points.
