Manchester City vs Chelsea Predictions
Manchester City To Win By At Least Three Goals @ 2.75 (7/4)
Man City is at their peak this season, and they have brushed past very good teams like Bayern Munich and Real Madrid easily. This game could be another horror show for Chelsea, who are even struggling to beat mid-table teams. The Citizens have won their last two games by at least a three-goal margin, and they score a lot of goals, especially at the Etihad. Chelsea has managed just 36 goals in the league, while Manchester City is just eight goals away from the 100-goal mark.
Earlier this season, when Chelsea faced Man City at the Etihad, they were a more competitive side, and they still lost 4-0. The Blues have been on a steady decline since then, and Manchester City should win this game comfortably. A bet on Manchester City to win by at least three goals is a good option in this game.
Kevin De Bruyne To Assist Anytime @ 2.62 (13/8)
Kevin De Bruyne leads the assist charts in the English Premier League with 16 assists to his name, and he created two goals in Manchester City’s last game against Real Madrid. The Belgian attacking midfielder has four assists in his last four home matches for Manchester City, and with Ilkay Gundogan playing in a more advanced position, Kevin De Bruyne has more creative duties. A bet on Kevin De Bruyne to assist a goal against Chelsea is a very valuable option in this fixture.
Erling Haaland – 4+ Shots @ 2.00 (1/1)
Erling Haaland broke the Premier League goalscoring record in just his first season in charge, and he would be looking to add to his tally. The Norwegian striker is Manchester City’s main outlet, and he is averaging four shots per game in the English Premier League. Chelsea is one of the teams that concede a lot of shots, and Erling Haaland has had four shots in his last two home games for Manchester City. Backing Erling Haaland to take at least four shots against the Blues has very good offers from the football online bookies.
Man City vs Chelsea Team News
Pep Guardiola’s switch to a 3-2-3-2 formation has been crucial to Manchester City’s performances in the second half of the season, and they have coped in the absence of João Cancelo. Nathan Ake is the only player injured, and Manuel Akanji has stepped up in his absence.
Chelsea has a long list of injuries, and Frank Lampard doesn’t seem to have a preferred starting XI.

Raheem Sterling bagged a brace against Nottingham Forest, and he is expected to start upfront against Manchester City.
