Saturday’s tea time kick off is a heavyweight clash between Chelsea and Man City live on BT Sport. Over the last 10 years Chelsea have had the upper hand in the fixture, winning 6, with 2 draws and 2 defeats. They won the corresponding fixture 2-1 last year.
Manchester City have got the season off to a flyer, winning 5 of their 6 Premier League games. They’ve scored 16 goals without conceding in their last 3 games. Meanwhile Chelsea have bounced back well from their opening day defeat at home to Burnley, winning 4 of their 5 League matches since that defeat.
Chelsea currently sit 10th in the league, based upon home form, having won 1 drawn 1 and lost 1, while Man City are top of the table based upon away form, having won all 3 of their games
Chelsea will be desperate to win this one and close the gap on their title rivals. This time last year they sat 8 points a drift of City, before going on a 13 win run and eventually finishing 15 points above them, they’ve got momentum on their side at the moment, so they won’t want to drop 6 points behind them after this match.
For my fun bet I’ll take the evens offered by bet365 for both teams to score and there be over 2.5 goals.
