Chelsea vs Man City prediction & betting tips brought to you by football expert Tom Love.
Chelsea vs Manchester City Stats
- Chelsea have won their last 3 matches against Man City in all competitions.
- Man City have kept a clean sheet in their last 4 matches (Premier League).
Betting Tip: Under 2.5 goals
These two sides were right up there in the betting for the premier league title at the start of the season but the gap has closed since then and it’s now Chelsea who are a touch shorter than City for top honours. It’s a similar story in the 1X2 market here with Chelsea very slight favourites but the bookies can’t really split the pair for the titanic Stamford Bridge tussle.
Even so early in the season, neither side will want to give anything away and it could be a case of defences being on top. After all Manchester City have kept clean sheets in each of their last 4 league games as well as 50% of matches last season. Chelsea under Thomas Tuchel have been a clean sheet machine in 9 of their last 12 home league games.
With the respect on both sides of the dugout I’m not expecting a lot of gung-ho attacking. Focus will be on shape and not allowing any good chances.
Under 2.5 goals looks a nice way in at 5/6 here with both defences so strong. It’s the draw as the biggest price of the three that makes the most appeal at 23/10 and given the context and the magnitude of the game it looks like a fair runner.
