Chelsea vs Manchester City Betting Tips

With only 1 win in their last 5 PL matches, Frank Lampard is beginning to the feel the heat at Chelsea, and it´s not likely to get any easier when they take on Man City on Sunday.

Having lost each of their last 3 away league fixtures, Chelsea will be happy to return to home comforts at Stamford Bridge where they remain unbeaten in their last 7 league outings, winning 4 and drawing 3.

Indeed, while expectations were certainly high in West London following a summer transfer spending spree which saw star talents like Werner, Havertz and Ziyech arrive at the Bridge, recent performances have certainly underwhelmed, leading to increased speculation that owner, Roman Abramovich might finally pull the plug on Lampards 18 month tenure as head coach.

While both sides come into this fixture level on 26 points, Chelsea has played 2 games more than their opponents here who arrive in London having gone 6 unbeaten in the league, winning 4 and drawing twice.

Manchester City's last fixture with Everton was postponed in midweek as a precaution due to an increase in positive COVID-19 cases at the club, and this fixture is not even certain to go ahead at the time of writing.

Past meetings should give Chelsea some confidence though with the Londoners winning 3 of the last 4 PL meetings between these two sides at the Bridge. However, this is usually a tight affair with just 2 of the last 8 meetings seeing BTTS and only 3 going over 2.5 goals.

Given all that, I expect something of a tight, low-scoring affair and a share of the points could well be on the cards although that outcome has not occurred in any of their last 10 PL meetings which have seen Chelsea win 4 times and City on 6 occasions.

Still, this is not any regular season, and with both sides suffering for various reasons in recent weeks, I suspect that a low-scoring draw might not be too unsatisfying an outcome for either coach.

Chelsea vs Manchester City Correct Score Prediction

A tough fixture to call, these two sides last shared the spoils in a 1:1 draw at Stamford Bridge back in 2015, and a similar outcome here should not be ruled out.
