The big game this weekend sees Chelsea make the trip up north to face Manchester City in one that looks sure to be full of goals. Both teams have great quality going forward, and both have match winners who can put the ball in the back of the net. Manchester City tips will be as popular as they always are for the league leaders, and at a price of 8/13 with BoyleSports, I am sure that many Premier predictions will include them. Chelsea are outsiders for this game, and have recently lost three of their last four games, something they must improve on to have even a remote chance of winning this one.
This season has been very comfortable for Manchester City and despite there being many games to go, they look to have already wrapped up the league title. The Premier League winner odds show that the title is heading to Manchester for The Blues, and it is only a matter of time before that is officially confirmed.
Chelsea looked capable of challenging at the start of the season, but they have really dropped away in recent weeks. They are now in danger of slipping outside of the top four, something that would be a huge disaster for them. They have lost three of their last four games, something which cannot be maintained if they want to play in the Champions League next season.
Manchester City Prediction
I was surprised to see the Manchester City betting odds as high as they are, and I am more than happy to back City to beat Chelsea at them. They are priced up at 8/13 with BoyleSports, which is more than fair against a struggling Chelsea team.
Manchester City have already won one trophy this season with their League Cup victory last weekend, the Premier League will be their second very shortly. The third trophy they are aiming for is the Champions League, and if they can wrap up the Premier League quickly, they will then be able to rest their players for the important upcoming Champions League games.
Chelsea have plenty of quality in their team when they are attacking, and they have players who can win them football games, however I won’t be giving out Chelsea tips until they have shown an improvement on the field. They have been poor recently, and they need to pick up before I back them again. Chelsea began the season as second favourites in the Premier League outright odds, but they have not lived up to that billing in recent weeks.
Chelsea are priced up at 9/2 with Unibet to win the game, a big price and the reason you may see some Chelsea tips out there. However, regardless of the price, the fact with Chelsea is that they have disappointed recently, and they now have to travel away to face the best team in the league. This is going to be a tough day for Chelsea, and a game I cannot see them winning.
Manchester City Tips
The Man City odds make them a very attractive betting proposition this weekend. Chelsea have not shown anywhere near enough recently to think they can go up to Manchester and win this game, and my Manchester City prediction is that they will win this game comfortably.
The price of 8/13 with BoyleSports is higher than I was expecting to see and that makes Manchester City a great bet on Sunday. They are sure to win the Premier League in the next few weeks, and they have a good chance of also winning the Champions League this season. The feel good factor is alive and well in Manchester right now, and City are enjoying their time at the top.
This looks set to be a tough day for Chelsea, and the only Chelsea prediction I can see happening is that they will lose this one, I cannot see a way for them to win. Manchester City are too strong, expect to see plenty of Manchester City tips this weekend, including mine.
