Manchester City v Chelsea Premier League Preview, 4th March 4.00pm
Manchester City will look to extend their impressive home form even further by taking down Chelsea on Sunday evening. The Citizens are strolling their way to league success but for Chelsea, their chances of landing a top-four finish could seriously be coming off the rails having lost up at Old Trafford against Manchester United last weekend.
Manchester City v Chelsea Betting Odds*
Man City 4/7, Draw 16/5, Chelsea 17/4* (Betting Odds taken at 06:05 a.m. on February 26th, 2018)
Manchester City News and Form
Manchester City on a thirteen match winning streak at home in the Premier League. Not too shabby them. They are just on cruise control and have scored at least three goals in each of their last six home fixtures in a remarkable show of scoring power. Their tally now from their fourteen home games in the league is at 50, which is an average of 3.57 goals per game. Remarkable stuff and they have conceded just the ten goals on home soil with a clean sheet in 36% of their home fixtures. 36% of their games at the Etihad have gone over 4.5 goals and over 3.5 goals at bet365 for the hosting of Chelsea is at 13/8 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 00:02 a.m. on February 27th, 2018). The Citizens have been leading at half time in all but four of their home games this season so a Man City/Man City half time/ full-time bet isn’t without its appeal. All but one of their home games have seen at least two goals this season. It has pretty much been a procession for them and in the bet365 correct score market a Man City 3-1 option can be backed at 12/1 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 00:02 s.m. on February 27th, 2018).
Chelsea News and Form
Chelsea’s top four hopes have taken a massive hit lately. They are now W1 L3 in their last four league games and they may struggle to avoid defeat in this one as well. They have lost their last two away games on the bounce after going down 2-1 at Old Trafford on weekend against Manchester United. The Blues have conceded nine goals in their last four games now and they are just W1 D2 L2 in their last five away games. So the struggles there are clear for them, they are not as tightly knit of a unit as they were last season. Their overall away record in the league is W7 D3 L4 and they really need either Alvaro Morata or Olivier Giroud to start scoring heavily. Eden Hazard and Willian are pretty much carrying the can for them from midfield and that’s a big burden. Chelsea have averaged 1.8 goals per game away from home and they are on a four-match scoring steak away from the Bridge. But their defence is there for the taking at the moment and both teams to score at bet365 is at 7/10 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 00:02 a.m. on February 27th, 2018). Their form is dropping and so is their chance of getting back to the Champions League next season.
Manchester City v Chelsea Head to Head
The Citizens took a 1-0 win out at Chelsea earlier this season and that was a response to having lost both of last season’s meeting in the top flight against the Londoners. Manchester City are now 3-2 ahead int eh last five Premier League clashes but are only W1 D1 L2 in their last four on home soil against Chelsea.
Who will win – Manchester City v Chelsea Predictions
Manchester City are likely to be pretty untroubled in this one. Chelsea are out of form and things just seem to be falling apart for them just at the wrong time. Look for the Citizens to run out a comfortable win by a margin of a couple of goals.
