What a game we have on our hands here. Manchester City are fully back in the title race and they will be looking for revenge over Chelsea back at the Etihad. The Blues were the first side to get the better of the Citizens this season. Can they complete the double over them as they look for points towards a top-four finish? Read our Manchester City v Chelsea betting tips for more.
Man City 9/20
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 5th, 2019 at 11:38 p.m.)
Manchester City raced back to the top of the Premier League for the first time since mid-December as they beat Everton 2-0 at Goodison Park on Wednesday. That made it back to back wins for them in the top flight having beaten Arsenal on the weekend. So they did have that extra workload in midweek compared to Chelsea ahead of this clash. The positive week leaves Man City with six wins in their last seven league games. At home this season they hold a mightily impressive W12 L1 record.
The Citizens have averaged 3.3 goals per home league game this season and all but one of their fixtures at the Etihad have gone over 2.5 goals. 62% have made it over 3.5 goals. Manchester City have scored at least two goals in all home fixtures in the EPL this term. At the back, they have only taken one clean sheet in their last eight home fixtures. But still, they have averaged under a goal per game on home turf this season. Both teams have scored in 69% of their home league games now. 64% of their home goals conceded have been in the first half of fixtures. Man City’s home half time record is W10 D2 L1.
Chelsea earned a 2-0 home win over Man City earlier this season
Man City won both league meetings 1-0 against Chelsea last term
Chelsea have two of their last three league visits to the Etihad (W1)
Both teams have scored in just two of the last seven meetings in all competitions
The Blues put a resounding 5-0 win on the board last time out, getting the victory over Huddersfield. Gonzalo Higuain got himself a brace in the game. That was a response that they needed too having lost their two matches prior to that. Both of those defeats were on the road at Arsenal and then at Bournemouth. So the Blues are not carrying away form into this one. Away from home, this season Chelsea have posted a W7 D1 L4 record. All four defeats have been at sides currently in the top half of the table. If you look back a little further into Chelsea’s road form it is W3 L4 in their last seven.
Chelsea have averaged 1.6 goals per away game this season and 75% of their away fixtures have ended up over 2.5 goals. In total, the Blues have earned a clean sheet in 42% of their road games. Of this season’s goals which they have conceded away from home, 64% have come against them in the second half of fixtures. Four of their six wins out on the road have been by a one-goal margin. The Blues have scored first in eight of their twelve road games and Man City are only one of two sides in the league with a better defensive record than Chelsea.
Manchester City have to be backed to get some home revenge over the Blues. There have been vulnerabilities with Chelsea and who better to expose them than Manchester City? Man City to win & both teams to score.

Chelsea had a miserable time of things on Wednesday night as they were smashed by Bournemouth. Once again it was a lot of possession and no end product for the Blues. They will be hoping to turn around their fortunes at Stamford Bridge on the weekend as they play bottom side Huddersfield. Read our Chelsea v Huddersfield betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on January 29th, 2019 at 4:59 p.m.)
The Blues could not get themselves going on Wednesday night as they suffered 4-0 defeat at Bournemouth. That leaves Chelsea on back-to-back defeats in the league now having lost at Arsenal in their previous game. So their battle for a top-four finish is becoming increasingly stressful for them now.
But they do get back to home soil where they have a W7 D4 L1 record on the board for the season. Chelsea took a 2-1 victory over Newcastle in their last league home fixture snapping a run of two without a victory. The goals in their win over Newcastle are Chelsea’s only goals in their last three league home fixtures.
So Chelsea are missing something up front. Overall this season they have scored 21 goals at Stamford Bridge, conceding nine. Less than half of their home games have made it over 2.5 goals. Chelsea have taken a clean sheet in 42% of their home fixtures. But now home and away combined they only have taken two in their last eight played.
Chelsea have scored in just one of their last four games home and away combined. In none of their home games have Chelsea been trailing at the halftime break this season. Still, only Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool have better home records than Chelsea do this season. Chelsea have the fourth best home record in the top flight currently.
The Blues eased to a 3-0 win at Huddersfield the season’s first meeting
The Blues have won four of the last five meetings with the Terriers (D1)
Chelsea have scored at least two goals four of their last five against Huddersfield
The Terriers have scored in each of their last five visits to Stamford Bridge
Huddersfield had new manager Jan Siewert in charge for the first time on Tuesday night as they faced a home game against Everton. The Terriers conceded early in the game and were never able to recover even with Everton going down to 10 men.
Huddersfield’s away from this season is pretty bad at W1 D3 L7, but still, that is likely better than what they have produced at home. Across their sequence of away games, Huddersfield have scored only the eight goals. They have scored just one goal in their last four out on the road in the top flight.
Across their last five games away from the John Smith’s Stadium Huddersfield have collected just one point, which came in a 0-0 draw at Cardiff in their last road game. Huddersfield have conceded an average of 1.9 goals per away game this season. The Terriers have two clean sheets on their travels.
Overall home and away it is an 11 match winless streak that Huddersfield are on in the top flight and from their 11 away games so far they have been losing at the halftime break in five of them. Surprisingly though even though they are bottom of the league they don’t have the worst away record. Cardiff and Fulham have done worse than they have on their travels. Huddersfield though are the lowest scoring side in the top flight by some distance.
Chelsea should record a comfortable home victory in this one and strengthen their shot at getting back into the race for a top-four finish. We have to have a serious look at the Chelsea to win to nil option.

This could be a tricky away game for Chelsea. The Blues are trying to defend a place inside the top four, but lost ground with a loss against Arsenal last time out. They have blown a bit hold and cold on the road and the Cherries do have a bit of home form. This could be very interesting. Read our Bournemouth v Chelsea betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on January 25th, 2019 at 11:54 p.m.)
Come the start of November last year Bournemouth’s season pretty much fell apart in the Premier League. They have won just three of their last 13 League fixtures. However, all three of those in that sequence have been home and they are W3 D1 L1 in their last five at the Vitality Stadium. So that’s not so bad and overall this season at home Bournemouth hold a W6 D3 L3 record. The Cherries have tallied 21 goals in their home games at an average of 1.75 per game. 67% of their home League games have gone over 2.5 goals.
Bournemouth have scored at least two goals now in four of their last five on home soil, their last two wins both by a 2-0 scoreline. They have only failed to score in two home games this season while they have taken a clean sheet in 33% of their home fixtures. Four of the six home wins that they have posted have been by a two-goal margin. Just once this season have Bournemouth been losing at the halftime break at home. Bournemouth have scored 62% of their home goals this season in the first half of matches and they have opened the scoring in seven of their 12 home games. Only the current top five actually have better home records than Bournemouth this season.
Chelsea have beaten Bournemouth twice this season, in the EPL and EFL Cup
Both teams have scored in only one of the last five meetings in all competitions
Bournemouth have won one of their last eight against the Blues
Chelsea have won all four previous EPL away games at Bournemouth
Chelsea suffered a bruising 2-0 loss at Arsenal last time out in the Premier League. That puts their push for a top-four finish in a bit of jeopardy. The loss against the Gunners ended a four-match undefeated streak that Chelsea were on, having won three of those. They had also been on a three-match winning streak away from home before that loss at the Emirates. Overall this season Chelsea are W7 D1 L3 away from home in the EPL. Each of those three away defeats have happened in their last six well games.
There are positives there are of course though for Chelsea who have averaged 1.7 goals per away game this season. They have only conceded 10 away goals as well, under an average of a goal per game against. 73% of Chelsea’s away games this season have ended over 2.5 goals. The Blues have earned a clean sheet in 45% of their away fixtures this season only failing to score in two of their road games. Chelsea haven’t been involved in an away draw in any of their last eight games. The Blues have opened the scoring in eight of their 11 away games.
There could be a little something in this for Bournemouth who haven’t done too badly on home soil. Looking at the bigger picture of Chelsea’s slip in away from, a Double Chance on the home side looks a bit of value at 11/8* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on January 25th, 2019 at 11:54 p.m.)

The Blues collected a good win out at Brighton last weekend to build on the back of their win over Manchester City.

The Blues have earned back to back Premier League wins now after a 2-1 win at Brighton last weekend. That followed up not their huge home success against Manchester City when Chelsea beat the reigning champions 2-0. Chelsea have not conceded in any of their last three league games at the Bridge and their overall league home form this season is W6 D3 L0. Across their nine home games, this term Chelsea have scored 19 and have conceded just the seven. They have taken ac elan sheet in 44% of their games at the Bridge in fact. Chelsea have scored in both halves of 67% of their home games
44% of their home games have ended with exactly two goals scored. Each of Chelsea’s last three league outing on home soil have ended under 2.5 goals. In none of their home games in the EPL this term have the Blues found themselves trailing at the midway point of the game. Only Man City and Liverpool have better home records than Chelsea this term. On top of that, there are just the two sides have conceded fewer league goals than the Blues have in the EPL. After his nine-match scoreless streak of league form, Eden Hazard was back among the goals last weekend for Chelsea.
There was a 0-0 draw between them at Stamford Bridge in last season’s EPL
Chelsea have won five of the last six meetings in all competitions
Both teams have scored in just one of the last five classes
Leicester have failed to win any of their last eight trips to Stamford Bridge
The Foxes suffered a 1-0 loss at Crystal Palace last weekend to make it back to back league defeats for them. They failed to hit the back of the net in either of those two losses two. It is just the two wins that Leicester have picked up in their last ten league games now so they are struggling a bit really. Away from home this season the Foxes are W3 D2 L4 and they have lost all three away games against sides currently in the top half of the table. In their away games, the Foxes have produced 11 goals and have conceded 13.
Less than half of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals. Each of Leicester’s last eight games in the top flight (home and away combined) have ended under the 2.5 goal line so there’s a strong trend. The Foxes have scored in all but one of their away games this season though and 82% of their away goals scored have been in the second half of matches. Leicester have conceded 62% of their away goals in the first period of games and they have been trailing by a 1-0 scoreline at half time in four of their road games.
Because Leicester have been struggling to find their winning touch we are going to predict the home win in this one. The Blues have the strong form at the Bridge behind them enough to warrant looking at them winning to nil.

Chelsea make a trip to Brighton on the weekend and they are looking to shake off some poor away form in the league. But they beat Manchester City at home last weekend to give themselves a huge lift.

The Seagulls suffered a surprising set back last weekend as they lost 1-0 at Burnley. They had been on a good three-match undefeated streak of form before that happened (W2 D1). Back they get back to home soil this weekend where their form has been good. They have produced a record of W4 D2 L1 at the Amex this term in the top flight. They have produced an unbeaten run of four home games, winning three of those so things are good for them there. In their home games, the Seagulls have produced 12 goals at home this season, conceding 8
43% of the games at the Amex this term have gone above 3.5 goals so that has been a surprisingly high output really. They took a win in their last home game, a big 3-1 success over Crystal Palace. That win meant that they also kept up their streak of having hit the back of the net in all of their league home games this season. The Seagulls have earned a clean sheet in 29% of home games. Both teams have scored in 71% of league games at the Amex this term. Brighton have scored 67% of their home goals in the first half of games and have opened the scoring in five of their seven home games.

Chelsea are on an eight-match winning streak against Brighton in all competitions
The Blues won 4-0 at Brighton last season
The Seagulls have failed to score in their last five against Chelsea
Chelsea are W8 D1 L1 in their ten previous games against Brighton
Form a starting position as underdogs, Chelsea produced a big upset last weekend as they took a 2-0 win over reigning champions Manchester City. That can only have done their self-belief the power of good. Chelsea need to turn around some poor away form though as they have lost back to back road games. After a thumping at Spurs, the Blues then threw away a lead at Molineux to lose against Wolves. The Blues are W4 D1 L2 overall this season away from Stamford Bridge now.
But as a positive for them ahead of this game, Chelsea are W4 D1 in five away games against sides currently in the bottom half of the table. In that sequence of five away games, Chelsea have conceded just the one goal as well. In total, the Blues have scored 14 goals and have conceded just the six. Chelsea have banked a clean sheet in 57% of their away games. Even with that stat, 86% of their away games have ended over 2.5 goals.
Eden Hazard is without a league goal since October 7th against Southampton and the Blues could do with him rediscovering his touch. The Blues have been trailing at halftime in only one of their road games this season (W4 D2). Of the goals that they have produced away from home, 64% of them have been in the second period. Chelsea have opened the scoring in five of their seven away games. Only Liverpool and Man City have conceded fewer league goals than Chelsea this season

Chelsea haven’t been great on their travels recently, but that win last weekend should have boosted their mentality. As long as they aren’t complacent than they can go and get a good solid road win to nil.
