Stamford Bridge will be treated to quite a match this weekend as the home team, Chelsea, take on a visiting Manchester City team who are playing some great football. This is a game between two of the teams who have spent a lot of money so lots of quality will be on display in this encounter. I expect a tight match and one that should be exciting to watch.

Chelsea at home have been pretty good come the second half of the season. This side has played some new players as of late and they have been quite impressive. This week the test will be a lot tougher though as they are up against some amazing opposition. I think it might be a little too much for Chelsea. This side lost to Swansea away last week and they don’t have much to play for this time around. We might expect them to play for pride but this hasn’t happened lately so I think we can expect nothing but a loss here from the Blues.

Manchester City on the other hand will be determined to win since they still have to secure 4th spot and their season still has a lot of life in it. This will be a tough game but their motivation will be a lot higher and I think that will be enough to get them over the line in this game. A win here will take them a long way to ensure they play Champions League next season so I think we can expect a strong performance from the Sky Blues this weekend.

As far as betting is concerned, I think we are getting the right price to bet on the outright result. Manchester City are over 2.50 and I think that is value since they win more than half the times they play in this game so I shall take it as my bet for this match. 

Pick:
Manchester City
