Chelsea and Manchester City Meet in the Premier League DerbyPublished September 30, 2017 by Florin P
Chelsea and Manchester City test their invincibility in a match for the next title in the Premier League (5:30 p.m UK Time).
Chelsea has made very few false steps so far in the Premier League, but the former champions are still trailing the two teams from Manchester. They currently sit in the third-place but have a golden opportunity to tie them for the lead this weekend. That’s because Manchester City comes visiting and in front of its fans, Chelsea is a force to be reckoned with.
High Goal Production for Chelsea
After Mourinho’s departure, Chelsea has started to play more aggressive football and results speak for themselves. The team is currently scoring a basketful of goals both at home and on the road and has the resources to maintain this high tempo. Players were shuffled in the championship games, domestic cup matches and Champions League fixtures to prevent injuries and suspensions.
Chelsea has scored an average of three goals per match this season and is not going to play defensively against Manchester City. Even though this is the toughest opponent yet, the Blues are well capable of taking the initiative early on and keeping the visitors under constant pressure.
Lengthy Winning Streak for Manchester City
Manchester City has won six games in a row but several of them were narrow margin victories where points were saved in the final seconds. They can’t afford to take the foot off gas against Chelsea, as coming from behind is not something desirable when playing at Stamford Bridge.
From a punter’s perspective, this is a difficult match to bet on, but the odds offered by bet365 Sports make the risks worth taking. Players enjoy even odds on an Asian handicap wager on Chelsea to win, that will refund the stakes in the event of the match resulting in even a draw. This greatly reduces the risks for punters and given Chelsea’s recent forum, is fully justified.
