Man City – Chelsea, Premier League Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR MAN CITY - CHELESA
City showed class against Everton and earlier against Arsenal, continuing the battle for the title with Liverpool. Citizens are unique host with just 1 loss and 12 wins at Etihad this season. For City, there will be 3 games of 3 different tournaments in the next few weeks before West Ham’s end of the month, which will come 3 days after the Chelsea final, so the 3 points against the blues today are mandatory.
Higuain and Hazard fared pretty well, or at least we saw it from Sari’s team vs. Huddersfield in the 5-0 victory, but terriers are not the world’s greatest team, so… It is the match with City to be key to see if they are able to change their season, because as they led with over 6 points to the chasers, so now the difference is extremely small and Chelsea can finish 6th very easy if continue like that.
City has lost to Chelsea in the last match at Stamford Bridge, so Guardiola knows what he is waiting for in this game. Chelsea is not exactly the easiest rival for Man City over the years, even on Etihad, but at the moment guests play pretty offensive football, which is a prerequisite for goals, while previous seasons were led by defensive managers in the face of Conte and Mourinho. Chelsea were defeated 4-0 in their last visit to Bournemouth. Prediction – City – Over 1.5 goals at 1.52
- City has scored at least 2 goals in every single home game ever since the start of season in Premier League
- Chelsea has scored 6 goals in the last 2 away games in the league
