Match Preview

Manchester City

Manchester City continues the season with a flawless home record W14-D0-L0, but now sitting on the second place with 66 points in 28 games, a match less and 4 points away from the first Manchester United. Having recorded 14 consecutive home victories, definitely makes City the book’s favorite for this match priced @ 1.83 to win, where the Asian handicap -1.5 is @ 3.20. Considering that the Citizens have kept 3 clean sheets in their last 3 home games, the clean sheet bet seems quite possible and the odds quite valuable @ 2.50. Mario Balotelli & Sergio Aguero are both the books’ favorites to score at anytime @ 2.10.

William Hill Sports

Chelsea

This is definitely one of the worst seasons for Chelsea, but the team managed to overcome a passive of 2 goals in the Champions League, and after the 1:3 loss in Italy to Napoli, managed to win the return match in extra time with 4:1 (3:1 FT). The team is currently 5th with 49 points in 28 games, 3 behind Arsenal. Chelsea’s away record is W5-D5-L4 scoring 17 goals and conceding 13 in those games, losing the last 2. After their most recent way loss to W.B.A, manager Villas-Boas was sacked and Roberto Di Matteo took over as a caretaker. During the weekend Chelsea faced Leicester City in a match for FA Cup, winning with 5:2. Odds for Chelsea to win here, have their value @ 4.33. The books favor Daniel Sturridge, Didier Drogba and Fernando Torres to score at anytime @ 3.40.

Verdict

Last games between Manchester City and Chelsea on Etihad Stadium:

25/09/2010 – Premier League – Man City vs. Chelsea 1:0
05/12/2009 – Premier League – Man City vs. Chelsea 2:1
13/09/2008 – Premier League – Man City vs. Chelsea 1:3
05/04/2008 – Premier League – Man City vs. Chelsea 0:2
14/03/2007 – Premier League – Man City vs. Chelsea 0:1

Despite the fact that Manchester City’s record against Chelsea at home reads W3-D1-L9, two of those three victories came in the last two meetings between both teams. If this game ends anything but a home victory, Manchester United’s chances to grab the title will raise a lot, 9 rounds before the season ends. Therefore, City will put all efforts to grab the 3 points here, so back Manchester City to win @ 1.83.

Considering, City’s awesome attack that has scored 42 goals in 14 games, and Chelsea’s poor defending this season, this match should easily see at least 3 goals. Back the game to end Over 2.5 goals @ 1.90.
