Manchester City v Chelsea Betting Tips: Match Preview
Manchester City won their first match against West Bromwich with the classics 3-0 and took the lead in Premier League as they were the only team to score 3 goals. Brilliant Yaya Toure who netted 2 and the final 3-0 formed by Kompany in the 59th minute. Overall performance record for Manchester City 71%, winning 5 of the last 7 games.
Raheem Sterling made his debut in the match against W.B.A, and while it took him whole 4 minutes since the start of the match to touch the ball, he brought a lot of speed in the team. He managed to top at 32.44km/h, making him the fastest player on the field. Manuel Pellegrini has said that it’s easy for for great players to settle in good teams, therefore to expect a debut goal soon.
Sterling is priced to score in this match at anytime @ 3.50 with bet365.com, but in such a tough match against a direct title competitor will be tougher.
Overall record against Chelsea W11-D7-L21, with City winning one of the last 5 meetings, losing 2 and drawing the most recent 2. Most recent victory in Premier League, was back in 2013 on Etihad Stadium with 2-0. While Manchester City is priced as a favorite here with betting odds to win @ 2.10, Mourinho is someone that knows how to steal points, especially against title competitors.
Chelsea recorded a 2-2 draw in their first match against Swansea, which to many was an equivalent of a loss, especially on Stamford Bridge. Current performance rating 50% with no victories in the past 3 games, but 3 in the last 7 games. The team knows how to play on Etihad, recorded a 1-1 here last season, and a 1-0 victory the season before that.
Not a lot of new names in the team, with still 16 days until the end of the transfer window: Danilo Pantic, Nathan, Radamel Falcao and Asmir Begovic, you probably already know if you have been following Chelsea transfers news.
Despite the 2-2 draw, only one player from Chelsea managed to score a goal, Oscar as Federico Fernandez net an own goal in the 30th minute giving the lead back for the Blues. Current betting odds for Chelsea to win Premier League @ 3.00 with bet365, while those of City are @ 2.75. Both teams are priced @ 1.062 to finish in Top 4 this season.
Chelsea has been given betting odds @ 3.50 to tie this game and 3.75 to win it. The draw no bet Chelsea @ 2.50 looks promising, as we do not expect the Blues to lose this match, but with an unclear final outcome.
Chelsea already made a step to the side, with the draw against Swansea. Now the Blues have to really focus and try to keep their distance from the current table leader Manchester City, who had no problems winning their first match with 3-0.
When it comes to stealing points from direct title competitors, Mourinho has no match, therefore we expect Chelsea to NOT lose this game. Back Draw No Bet Chelsea @ 2.50 as a rewarding betting option.
Five of the last seven games, has seen goals from both sides. Considering that it’s still early in the season, and even defensive teams like Chelsea conceded 2 goals already, seems pretty safe to assume that we are going to see at least a goal from each team in this match. The Both Teams to Score – Yes @ 1.72 is our safety betting option in this game.
