Manchester City vs Chelsea Betting Tips & Predictions
Reason for Manchester City vs Chelsea Predictions
City tops the table with 80 points and needs a win to secure the title, while Chelsea, placed fourth with 61 points, are pushing for a top-four finish. Chelsea ended Manchester City’s chase for a quadruple in the 1-0 defeat in the FA Cup semi-finals, and they will not only be on a revenge mission here but also seeking a win to wrap up the title. City hasn’t lost a game since their loss to Chelsea in the FA Cup; they have five wins and scored twice in four of them while keeping three clean sheets. The hosts have two losses in the last 15 league matches, and in the previous five, three have produced over 2.5 goals. Phil Foden is showing his talent and should be one of the leading players in the future. Raheem Sterling is the engine of this team, his greatest virtue is speed, he has excellent ball control, and he can be satisfied with his performance.
Chelsea is coming from a 2-0 win over Real Madrid and will be hoping to get three points here to aid in their push for a top-four finish. That was their second win by that margin and fourth clean sheet in the last five matches. They have three straight clean sheets in the league and are unbeaten in the previous four. In three of their last five league matches, they have scored two or more goals. Kai Havertz has three goals in the previous four league matches, two of which came in their last league match, a 2-0 win over Fulham. He will be hoping to extend his scoring run here and can bank on Chelsea’s good away run in the league, having gone seven unbeaten, with five wins in there. Christian Pulisic plays fantastically and creates a lot of problems for the opposition’s defense. Many clubs are ready to give a fortune for the arrival of this guy. Timo Werner is an incredible player, and in the one-on-one game, he is unstoppable. A great reinforcement, he was a favorite of RB Leipzig fans.
Manchester City is convincingly first on the table, and they are in phenomenal form. Pep Guardiola’s team does not spare opponents, and they are favorites in this derby.
The prediction for this match is over 2.5 goals. We hope that football fans will enjoy this match.
