The Line: Manchester City -200/Draw +375/ Chelsea+ 600, Over/Under:
Manchester City and Chelsea are set to play each other in the English Premier League. This match will be played at the Etihad Stadium so Manchester City will be at home.
Chelsea had a big win in their last outing as they beat Huddersfield town by a score of 5-0. It was a dominating performance by the Blues as they controlled 65% of the possession while having a pass accuracy of 81%. The strikers were very impressive for Chelsea as they 23 shots with 7 shots on target. Gonzalo Higuain and Eden Hazard were both very impressive for Chelsea as both players scored braces. Chelsea will know that they must win this match since a loss will most likely see them drop below Manchester United and out of the top 4.
On the other side of the coin, Manchester City enter this match won their previous match as they beat Everton away from home by a score of 2-0. It was a dominant performance by Manchester City as the controlled 62% of the ball while completing close to 550 passes at a pass accuracy rate of 85%. Manchester City are currently top of the table but have played an extra game when compared to Liverpool so the Sky Blues must keep winning to ensure they remain in the title race.
Manchester City and Chelsea played earlier in the season at Stamford Bridge. On that occasion, Chelsea won the game 2-0.
This is expected to be a very close game since both Chelsea and Manchester City are filled with exceptional players. That being said, I am going to pick Manchester City to win this game. Manchester City have been in exceptional form and have beaten teams like Liverpool and Arsenal in recent weeks. Furthermore, Manchester City have the advantage of playing at home. With all that taken into consideration, I see Manchester City winning this match and getting all 3 points on the board.
