Chelsea v Manchester City Match Preview & Betting Odds

In a big game in the Premier League title race, Chelsea host Manchester City at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night.

Last time out league leaders Chelsea suffered a shock 2-1 home defeat against relegation-threatened Crystal Palace. The defeat coupled with second place Tottenham’s 2-0 win at Burnley means that the side from north London are just now seven points behind the Blues.

The defeat against the Eagles ended a five-match winning run for the Blues in all competitions. It also ended Chelsea’s ten-match winning run at home in the Premier League.

Despite the Palace defeat, the Blues have lost just two of their last 23 Premier League outings, so Conte’s side will be confident of picking up a positive result in this clash. The Blues will also take heart from the fact that they defeated City 3-1 at the Etihad Stadium in December in the reverse fixture.

City head into this clash in fourth-place in the Premier League table, 11 points behind the league leaders. A 2-2 draw with fellow top four challengers Arsenal last time out was a frustrating one, as a win could have given Pep Guardiola’s side a better chance of catching the Blues.

City did manage to preserve their eight-match unbeaten in the Premier League with the draw at Arsenal. The Citizens have now drawn their last three games in the league, which has seen them fall further behind Chelsea at the top of the table.

The Citizens recent away record in the Premier League is pretty good, as the visitors are now four games unbeaten on their travels, having recorded three wins and a draw. Guardiola’s side have also scored two or more goals in their last four away games.

Argentinian striker Sergio Aguero seems to have hit form again, having scored three times in his last four appearances for the Citizens.

This promises to be a cracking game and could follow suit to the Arsenal, City game. So the draw is very tempting at the odds (12/5). But we prefer to back that there will be over 2.5 goals. William Hill are very generous in going 10/11 most other bookies are going 8/11 or less. Want more betting tips then check out our Arsenal v West Ham tips.
