Chelsea have hit top form early in the season, and they head into a potential title clash against Man City full of confidence. City have already dropped points in the title race and have a poor recent record against the Blues. This match will provide an early insight into two of the Premier League’s title contenders and points that could be won and lost at Stamford Bridge on Saturday. This clash will kick off at 12:30 and will be broadcast on BT Sport.
Chelsea beat Tottenham 3-0 last weekend to extend their unbeaten start to the season. Thomas Tuchel’s side have won four of their opening five league matches. Man City’s three-match winning streak was ended by a 0-0 draw against Southampton on Saturday. The Citizens have now dropped four points this season after a 1-0 loss to Spurs on the opening day of the Premier League. Edouard Mendy and Christian Pulisic will be back in the Chelsea squad this weekend. For City, Zack Steffen is the only confirmed absentee. John Stones, Aymeric Laporte, Oleksandr Zinchenko, and Ilkay Gundogan are likely to return.
There is good value in the match winner market for the Chelsea vs Man City clash this weekend. The betting markets show there is little between the sides, with no out and out winner backed. Man City have won five of their last six matches, and they beat Leicester 1-0 in their last Premier League match, and there is decent value on backing an away win with SBK returning odds of 20/11. A draw is unlikely between these sides as Chelsea have drawn just three of their last 15 in all competitions, and Man City have one stalemate in their last 53 fixtures. There is good value on a draw, despite it being a long shot at 9/4, offered by Betfred. Our tip for this fixture is to choose a home win for the Blues. Chelsea have won their last three home matches, and they have beaten City in their last three meetings. SBK will return decent odds of 20/11 for a home win.
The total goals market could return further profit from the Chelsea vs City fixture. There have been a mixed bag of results for the sides in recent meetings, and they have both found the net regularly this season. Firstly, going low and choosing under 2.5 goals could lead to some decent returns. Chelsea have seen under 2.5 goals in three of their last five matches, and two of the last three meetings between Chelsea and City have ended in a 1-0 scoreline in the Blues’ favour. Mansion Bet will return the best odds for under 2.5 goals at 5/6 odds. However, there is more value to go for a high scorer on Saturday, and our tip is to choose over 2.5 goals. The Citizens have seen over 2.5 goals in four of their last six matches, while Chelsea have won 3-0 in their last two fixtures. SBK will provide the best odds for backing over 2.5 goals this weekend at 19/17.
As Chelsea and City are hitting the net regularly this season, choosing an anytime goalscorer can lead to further profit. City have had numerous players lead their goal scoring charts already this season with seven different players finding the net. Fernan Torres scored in City’s 6-1 win against Wycombe in the EFL Cup on Thursday and the Spaniard, and he is City’s top scorer with two goals this season. He is backed at 3/1 by Unibet to score against Chelsea this weekend. However, there is greater value in backing a Chelsea goal scorer in this fixture, and there is one stand out choice on current form. Romelu Lukaku has quickly established himself as Chelsea’s talisman this season. The Belgian has scored three goals in four appearances, and Unibet are backing Lukaku at 17/10 to score against City.
Chelsea may be narrow favourites to take all three points on Sunday, but Mn City can never be written off in any match. Whatever the outcome, there could be plenty of goals and entertainment as these two heavyweights go toe to toe.
