Manchester City 19/20 to beat Chelsea in Saturday’s Premier League matchup
Competition: Premier League
Market: Manchester City win
Odds: 19/20 @ Bet 365
With Liverpool kicking off against Bournemouth five hours before City travel to Stamford Bridge, Manchester City will be looking to make another statement in London this weekend.
Starting with the hosts, while it was a very bright start for Chelsea under Maurizio Sarri, the Blues have shown their first signs of a struggle and now face their toughest test this season. In their opening 15 Premier League games this season, they have recorded nine wins, four draws and two defeats, scoring 31 and conceding 13 in return. With a points tally of 31, Saturday’s hosts now find themselves 10 points adrift of City at the top of the table. Also losing the Community Sheild to City in a 2-0 defeat back in August, Chelsea have now managed to pick up just one win in their last four Premier League matches. The Blues are also coming off the back of another below-par showing in their 2-1 defeat to a struggling Wolves side on Wednesday.
As for the visitors, once again enjoying another remarkable start to the season, Manchester City are seen to be the leading contender in the race to defend their crown. Yet to be beaten in any of their opening 15 domestic matchups, the Sky Blues have won 13 and drawn just twice. Scoring a staggering 45 goals already this year, they have also conceded just six in return. Pep Guardiola’s side comfortably hold the best-attacking record in the division, 11 more than Arsenal who sit second. As for their recent form, City have now won their last seven league matches on the bounce, scoring 25 goals on that run.
