Manchester City vs Chelsea: Match Preview and Prediction

Manchester City vs Chelsea: Manchester City enters this game having won eleven straight games across all categories. The Citizens have defeated Chelsea six times in the last seven matches. Seven days ago at Etihad Stadium, in a 2-0 victory over Everton, Erling Haaland finished with a brace.

On a thrilling Premier League Saturday, Manchester City and Chelsea will take the field. Matchday No. 25 between the two teams takes place at Etihad Stadium. Manchester City is a clear favorite going into the match.

Tuesday marked the Citizens’ ninth straight win in all competitions. Pep Guardiola’s team overcame FC Copenhagen 3-1 in the first leg of the last-16 round in Copenhagen, moving closer to the Champions League quarterfinals. In the Premier League, the defending champions lead. They trail Liverpool by two points despite having a game in hand.

Chelsea has also been successful. They won two critical away matches, 3-1. The first was against Aston Villa in the FA Cup fourth-round replay, while the second was against Crystal Palace in the Premier League five days earlier. This time, former Palace midfielder Conor Gallagher stole the stage with a brace.

Manchester City vs Chelsea: Betting Analysis

In the return encounter at Stamford Bridge in November, Chelsea held City to a thrilling eight-goal draw. Manchester City had a six-game winning streak over Chelsea. Only one of their eight H2H matches produced both goals.

Given Manchester City’s recent form, the home win is hard to argue against. Pep Guardiola’s team won 11 more matches. Six of their previous seven Premier League wins have been two-goal wins.

Chelsea lost four goals in two of their last three league games. This is not the defensive shape you want when facing the league’s deadliest offense. Finally, Manchester City had won six of seven prior matches against Chelsea. At 2.00 odds, we’ll support the hosts to win by two or more goals.

After returning from injury, Erling Haaland scored twice in 90 minutes. He altered the Etihad Stadium match against Everton last Saturday. In 18 Premier League games, the Norwegian attacker has scored 16 goals. As Chelsea’s defense struggles, Haaland should shine on Saturday. Adventurers can bet Haaland to score first at 3.25 odds.
