Reasons For Chelsea vs Manchester City Prediction And Betting Tips
Given their performances this season, it’s not hard to see why Chelsea are priced with such odds. Despite, their ability to fight for top four, the Blues are very much in a transitional phased under Frank Lampard. That means, their defence isn’t the most efficient and so is their front line. Nevertheless, they have a decent squad to put the pressure on Pep Guardiola’s men.
Manchester City have been vulnerable themselves this season but they are still a dominant side with a 9-point gap over Chelsea. Their ability to control possession and dictate the game will test Chelsea’s resolve. Clearly, they are more favoured side at 1.86 with Unibet.
Speaking of quality, this will be an opportunity for Tammy Abraham to get back on the scoresheet which is why he has been handed odds of 7.50 with Unibet to score the first goal.
Chelsea vs Manchester City Form
Manchester City face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Thursday evening. Both teams need the win for different reasons. Chelsea are looking strong after the restart but taking on Manchester City is a whole another domino of its own. Pep Guardiola’s men are looking to finish the season strong. That means, not adding to their 7 Premier League loses since the title is already out of their hands. Frank Lampard put up a good fight in the previous tie back in November which does give the Blues some hope going into this game.
The Blues won their first game back 2-1 against relegation fighters, Aston Villa. The team looked sharp on the ball but not convincing in the final third.

Chelsea’s players have enjoyed the break in terms of injuries. Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Christian Pulisic returned to action against Aston Villa but Callum Hudson-Odoi has picked up another injury. The latter’s fitness has been an issue through the lockdown and his presence is a real doubt for Thursday. Fikayo Tomori is also out with a muscle pull and is not expected to be back before the end of this month.
Tammy Abraham might be called back into the first XI over Olivier Giroud. Jorginho has served out his suspension and is available to be picked again.
As for Manchester City, the entire squad is fit other than Eric Garcia and Sergio Aguero. The former picked up a serious head injury against Arsenal and Aguero picked up a knock in the 5-0 win over Burnley. Both are expected to spend some time on the sidelines. John Stones could return at centre-back after recovering from a minor issue. Nicolas Otamendi or Fernandinho are also available
Chelsea sealed an important 2-1 win over Aston Villa on Sunday, but they have an even bigger challenge ahead of them on Thursday.
