Chelsea Vs Manchester City | Predictions.

          Chelsea will host a pumped up Manchester City side this Saturday on their home turf. It's ironic that Manchester City has recently knocked out the PSG side which ended Chelsea's European dreams, thanks to ex-Chelsea playmaker, Kevin de Bruyne. He is the one Chelsea's defense has got to keep an eye on, and Aguero, and Silva, and probably Toure as well...little too much to handle for a Chelsea defense with significant absentees.  

         Last Season, Chelsea was at top of the pile at this time, now they find themselves at 10th, quite a turnaround. City also has had a frustrating season so far, out of the title race, but motivation can be drawn from their current run in Champions League and and the fear of not securing a top 4 finish this season.

          Chelsea are bookmaker's favorites to edge this tie. However, I don't see this happening at Stamford Bridge this Saturday. With several key defenders and willian unavailable for Chelsea, a draw might be as good as it gets for them. However, a City win seems to be the most realistic outcome.

         Even though City are into the Semi-Finals of Champions League, securing a top 4 finish is their most realistic chance of European qualification next season. After all, there is a massive chance of them facing their future manager in the Semis or the final itself.

Top Picks :

  • Full Time Result - Man City.
  • Two or more Full Time Goal.
  • Corner Battle - Man City.
