Premier League Live Betting: Chelsea and Manchester City Fight for the TopPublished December 13, 2014 by Amir G
Premier League leaders Chelsea and Manchester City play teams from the bottom in an effort to get ahead (3pm UK time).
This Saturday marks gameweek 16 for the Premier League with the two leaders Chelsea and Manchester City facing teams from the bottom (both kickoffs at 3pm UK time).
Chelsea vs. Hull City
Chelsea leads the table with 36 points. In 15 matches the Blues have won 13 games, drawn 3 and their first lose came last Saturday playing away against Newcastle. A win could give Chelsea a breathing space with 6 points away from Manchester City, but now the gap is very changeable.
Hull City arrives at Stamford Bridge today straight from the relegation zone, positioned at the 18th spot with 13 points (2w, 7d, 6l). On the surface this is an easy game for Chelsea, especially after the Newcastle slip, but Hull is in need of any point they can get. Despite Chelsea being the clear favorite, this will certainly be an interesting match. In full time result odds, online sportsbook bet365 Sports gave 2/11 to Chelsea, 17/1 to Hull and 7/1 for a draw.
Leicester City vs. Manchester City
Manchester City travels to Leicester's King Power Stadium to face the home team which sits at the very bottom of the Premier League table. Only 3 points and 3 goals away from Chelsea's goal difference, City needs to win and score a lot if possible. The Citizens will be comforted if captain Vincent Kompany will be able to return from his injury. City will be energized by Wednesday's 0-2 Champions League victory over AS Roma which promised their spot in the round of 16 where Chelsea will also be present. bet365's full time result odds gave 6/1 to Leicester, 1/2 to City and 15/4 for a draw.
