Manchester City – Chelsea
Manchester City are getting closer and closer to another Premier League title and they will try to make another step on Saturday. This is when Pep Guardiola’s team will face Chelsea at the Etihad in a game from the 35th round of the competition. Let’s take a look in our football prediction betting tips today.
This is a special moment for both clubs as both of them qualified for the Champions League final during the week. Manchester City eliminated PSG while Chelsea did the job against another European powerhouse – Real Madrid. Both teams will face each other for the CL trophy in Istanbul at the end of the month. But now they must prove their worth in the Premier League again.
Man City are very close to the Premier League title as they have 13 points advantage in front of the second Manchester United. It’s just a matter of time before they officially win the gold medals. Because of the tough fixture against PSG, we expect to see Pep Guardiola making some rotations in his line-up. Players like Joao Cancelo, Aymeric Laporte, Rodri, Raheem Sterling, Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero could return in the starting eleven. City will need to be as fresh as possible.
Chelsea need points here because they are trying to keep their place in the Top 4. Right now Thomas Tuchel’s team is 4th in the league with 61 points which puts the Blues three points ahead of the 5th West Ham United.
Just as Man City, Tuchel must rotate the team and replace some of the most tired players. This means that players like Christian Pulisic, Kurt Zouma, Reece James, Hakim Ziyech, Olivier Giroud and Marcos Alonso could return in the line-up.
That’s our football prediction betting tips today for the Premier League clash between Manchester City and Chelsea at the Etihad. The two Champions League finalists are facing each other before the big final. You must watch!
