Man City – Chelsea, Premier League Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR MAN CITY - CHELSEA
Manchester City are pressed against the wall. Pep Guardiola seemed powerless after the game with Liverpool at Anfield. The difference was 9 points with the Reds, and City are not even 2nd. If they want to take the title, not only will they hope for Liverpool failures, but they themselves must try to put them under pressure and start a series of victories. City’s problems are starting to increase, however. In addition to being less stable in defense, the team’s efficiency is very poor when compared to their own standards and those of Liverpool at the moment, which are unique in that terms.
In view of the situation, Chelsea go out for a victory at Etihad. Lampard sees his opponent’s weaknesses. The Citizens are starting to look like a team that fewer and fewer teams are scared of, which is extremely strange given the last 2 seasons they have played and in which they have simply been absurdly good. Chelsea also recorded a unique record of 7 consecutive wins as a guest in all tournaments. This has not happened for decades, and we know how much stronger the Blues are after Abramovic came.
Expert view : We think that in their approach City will not be much different from what they have demonstrated so far. They will control the ball and try to use their strengths, namely the empty spaces and all the small corridors between Chelsea lines. But Chelsea have youngsters in good form and every single Blue player can score today. We will bet on a goal show that we want and expect to get. Prediction – BTTS and Over 2.5 Goals at 1.74.
4 of Chelsea’s last 5 games have ended with BTTS and over 2.5 goals
