Chelsea vs Manchester City Prediction and Betting Tips

Premier League – Chelsea vs Manchester City Prediction and Betting Tips. In the most interesting match in Round 31 in Premier League, Chelsea host Manchester City at Stamford Bridge. Read below betting preview, betting tips, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Chelsea vs Manchester City.

Chelsea stand at the top of the table in Premier League and they are the main candidate for the title this season. Home side unexpectedly lost in the previous round, when Crystal Palace beat them 1-2 at Stamford Bridge, so the difference between them and Tottenham is 7 points. The match against Manchester City is very important for Antonio Conte‘s men and they have to win this game in order to make one step forward to the title. They dominated in the last game, but Palace’s goalkeeper Hennessey was amazing and had 10 saves. Good news form home side is that they have almost all squad available, except Moses who is still injured, so it means that Pedro will cover the right side, while Willian will be closer to Diego Costa. In the first part of the season, the match between Manchester City vs Chelsea was finished with away win 1-3, but interesting fact is that Man City stay unbeaten in the last two Premier League games at Stamford Bridge (1-1, 0-3).

Manchester City stand at the 4th position in Premier League and they still have some theoretical chances to win the title, but it’s hard to believe it will happen. However, visitors want to finish the season in the Top 3, so they have to make good result against Chelsea. In the last match, Manchester City took one point against Arsenal, so they will try to take all three this time. It won’t be an easy job, but they believe that they can do it after Crystal Palace surprised home side. Sane is in the amazing form, but good news for Pep Guardiola is that their top scorer Sergio Aguero woke up and started to hit the net. The main problem for Man City is their defence. They conceded at least one goal in the last three matches in all competitions, so if they manage to make their defence more stronger the good result could come.

Team News

Home side have full squad available, except Moses who is doubtful. On the other side, visitors will be without Gabriel Jesus and Gundogan, while Sagna is doubtful.

Chelsea vs Manchester City Prediction
