Manchester City vs Chelsea Predictions and Betting Tips

The Etihad Stadium is the stage for the stage as title challengers Manchester City and Chelsea go toe-to-toe. Read on for our expert tips an predictions.

The Cityzens got some semblance of revenge from their Champions League final loss last season, beating Chelsea at the Stamford Bridge when both sides clashed back in September. Would we see them do the double over their opponents ?

The Blues looking to cut City's 10-points gap

The Cityzens were second-best for most of the game away at Arsenal but eventually did what champions do with Rodri netting a late winner at the Emirates Stadium. This win meant that Guardiola has now strung together an 11-game winning streak in the Premier League as they look to successfully retain their Premier League crown. Amidst City's COVID-19 crisis, they fielded a superpower squad in their FA Cup encounter away at Swindon Town. Unsurprisingly, they secured a place in the next round with a 4-1 victory- their seventh consecutive win in all competitions. With the challenge of the European champions on hand this weekend, they would be eyeing yet another victory in the hopes of denting Chelsea's title hopes.

Chelsea's poor form in the winter break which included a run of three wins, three draws and one loss has put them in a precarious position in terms of the Premier League crown. This has allowed the Cityzens a 10-points gap on the Blues and as such, a loss here would pretty much put an end to their title hopes. However, there's a chance for mid-season silverware as they secured a place in the EFL Cup final by beating Spurs 3-0 over the course of two legs and although this is a far cry from their UEFA Champions League triumph last term, their confidence would've been severely boosted as they prepare for the Cityzens' challenge.

Chelsea possible starting XI:

Kepa; Christensen, Silva, Rudiger; Azpilicueta, Jorginho, Kovacic, Alonso; Mount, Havertz; Lukaku

Man City vs Chelsea Prediction: 2-1

We've seen Chelsea feature in three games over the course of seven days and although they did well to win all of those games, fatigue could be an issue here. The Cityzens, meanwhile, are on top of the world and should very well extend their lead at the summit of the standings with a narrow win.
