Manchester City vs Chelsea 2019 EPL Odds, Preview & Prediction
Why bet on Manchester City?The only good thing was that City still managed to trouble Liverpool more than other teams have at Anfield. Sergio Aguero going into incognito mode didn’t help. The Argentine must be raging to get back to firing on all cylinders after that embarrassment. Chelsea would be foolish to take him for granted, knowing just how lethal he is finishing off chances at his beloved Etihad. Raheem Sterling has been impressive this season for city fans.
Knowing his cunning movement & goal-scoring touch now, he should turn up the fire at the weekend. Kevin De Bruyne’s retained his stunning consistency through the highs & lows this season. The way he creates chances out of nothing is rather mesmerizing. His stinging crosses, as well as expert through-balls, should cause a nightmare for the visitors. David Silvia will man the back line for city as they will have a tough game against the shot heavy Chelsea.
Why bet on Chelsea?Lampard’s Blues are looking for a club record eighth consecutive away win in all competitions, and a sixth success on the road in the Premier League in a row. A fearless unit under new management, they have mastered the art of withering the storm away from home. Considering that the Blues have created the second most goal-scoring chances in the league, just behind City, they aren’t one to park the bus, hoping for a point. Pulisic has played well this season when he has gotten the opportunity.
Willian might not be getting many goals or assists, but has been their driving force with witty movement or crossing from the wings. It is defensively where this Chelsea squad will struggle. City has accumulated 35 goals this season in just 12 games. That frenetic pace will be the issue that ends up breaking this Chelsea team.
