Newly crowned League Cup Champions and Premier League champions-elect Manchester City host Chelsea at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday. A hugely anticipated game, many would have thought at the start of the campaign this game could go a long way in deciding where the Premier League trophy would end up.
However, such has been City’s dominance this season that the title seems a foregone conclusion. In the reverse fixture back in September, Pep Guardiola’s men dominated, and could have won by more than Kevin De Bruyne’s late strike.
Much has been made of Antonio Conte in recent weeks and the drop in form his side has suffered. Their defeat away at Manchester United last time out saw Chelsea drop out of the top four, now sitting two points behind their London rivals Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League table.
City have only dropped points once at home, a 1-1 draw in their first home game of the season. It’s difficult to see them dropping points here either.
Willian has been one shining light for Chelsea recently, and should be one to watch for. Although City have a great home defence this season, keeping Chelsea out might be a tough ask. However, City have scored 50 goals in 14 home Premier League games, a City win and Both Teams To Score bet might be worth looking at.
Manchester City vs Chelsea Stats
Let’s see Manchester City vs Chelsea match stats. Games between the two have been shared, with both winning three of their last six meetings. Amongst other Manchester City v Chelsea stats of interest is that 20 goals have been scored in the last six matches, how about a Total Goals Over/Under bet?
Now, Manchester City v Chelsea match stats may not play that much of a role for this one. City have been simply sensational in this campaign, and coming off the back of Pep’s first trophy at the club, City are rightly favourites to win.
