Man City v Chelsea Tips & Betting Preview
The crushing defeat at Anfield of manchester City feels like a very long time ago, doesn’t it? For whatever reason, despite England with lots of fun, the international break of November felt somewhat longer than usual, but today it is finally time to get down to business in the Premier League.
Liverpool face Crystal Palace earlier this game kicks-off, therefore there is an opportunity the men of Pep Guardiola will find themselves a whopping 12 points supporting Jurgen Klopp’s boys in front of a ball is kicked at the Etihad — that is one major pillow.
However, it’s easy to forget that Chelsea (and really Leicester) are now over Manchester City in the Premier League! While most, and I include myself, have composed Chelsea’s odds of winning the Premier League this year, I am still holding out hope for a different titanic, two-way name race between Liverpool and City, just like last year, despite the increasing likelihood of Liverpool working away with this.
There’s no doubt that Frank Lampard has surpassed all expectations in his first year as Chelsea boss, along with the conduct they find themselves on (six straight Premier League wins) can no longer be set down to raw momentum; they are an excellent side.
We’ve got all noticed City’s inconsistencies this season: three defeats from their last eight league matches isn’t likely to beat Liverpool to the title (particularly when one of these losses was contrary to the Reds!) , and there is no doubt former-Manchester City star Lampard will fancy asserting that this scalp because his side have won five straight games away.
However, a performances have caused people to forget precisely how great Manchester City have been, and that I believe they defeat Chelsea like in eight of the past 11 home games against the Londoners.
It won’t be 6-0 like last season, I’ll tell you , but while Chelsea have scored an absolute hatful away from house (against relatively slight resistance ), 12 concessions within their six to the road is far from remarkable.
Consequently, I am financing the two teams to score and Manchester City to acquire. Chelsea haven’t had trouble finding the net this year, but their defence is less-than-stellar, and looking at the joy Ajax had against them in the Champions League (before their red card, anyway), I am confident the hosts will do the business. ??
In the last four league games in The Etihad between these two sides have we observed more than seven corners which includes last year to the 6-0 game.
So, giving us some leeway, I enjoy 6/5 for below 9.5 corners now around.
Moreover, Man City and Chelsea concede just 2.75 and 2.92 corners-per match this season, which might be by far the lowest figures from the Premier League.
