Premier League: Cheslea and Manchester City Fight for the LeadPublished January 10, 2015 by Amir G
It's High Noon at the Premier League today as Chelsea and Manchester City fight to remain at the top (15:00 UK time).
This Saturday marks the English Premier League's gameweek 21 which brings forth an exciting competition between even table leaders Chelsea and Manchester City which will both play different fixtures. At the moment, the teams are tied at the top with 46 points each: they've both won 14 matches, lost two and went out with a draw in 4. Both team's games will kick-off at 15:00 UK time today: Chelsea will meet Newcastle United at Stamford Bridge while City will be hosted at Everton's Goodison Park.
Revenge for Chelsea?
Chelsea began this Premier League season with a storm and it suffered its first loss against Newcastle at St James' Park in the beginning of December, a 2-1 loss that ended an unbeaten 23 game run. Now at home, Chelsea will want to wipe off the bad taste that the loss left, as well as the 5-3 loss against Tottenham last Thursday; the Blues will be motivated by their 3-0 beating of Watford in the FA Cup last Sunday.
It's hard to see Chelsea losing this: The odds at bet365 Sports have Chelsea as favorite, offering 1/5 for the Blues and 14/1 for Newcastle to win.
Everton Desperate to Beat City
Everton is having a rough season: four points away from the relegation zone, the Toffees have lost their last 4 games in the league. While their 1-1 FA Cup draw with West Ham which came by a dramatic Lukaku 92nd minute equalizer might console them, Manchester City has won its last four away games and is generally a better team looking to surpass Chelsea.
In full time result, bet365 is offering 16/5 on Everton to win and 17/20 on City.
