Chelsea, the reigning champion is hosting Manchester City who desperately wants to replace them on the throne. The clubs are in the excellent mood, and they are aiming three points from this event. But because of the direct encounter, it will be worth much more than that.
A last-second dagger in Madrid scored by Michy Batshuayi launched the Blues into the stars. Their morale after the victory against Atletico, 1-2, is enormous and they are awaiting the Citizens after 8 straight games without a defeat. In that period Chelsea recorded 7 wins and one draw, scoring two goals at least in every triumph. The total goal difference during the victorious span is 23-4. Only two matches during that span saw less than three goals, so the efficiency of Chelsea’s games is high. Alvaro Morata is the leading man of the assembly with 7 goals in 8 appearances, and Batshuayi is right behind him with 5 goals. Danny Drinkwater is the only one ineligible for this event.

Chelsea vs Manchester City Prediction and Betting Tips
We are going to continue with the recent tradition, and back up the goals in this event. Over 2.5 is the first pick for the Saturday’s derby. Both Antonio Conte and Pep Guardiola like to set up ultra-offensive tactics, and they do not care about opponent’s style of play.
Both teams to score is, in our opinion, inevitable at Stamford Bridge. With these names in the attack, defenses have to fail at least once.
For the braver punters, as also we have one proposition. Over 1.5 goals in the first halftime. It’s worth risking do not doubt it.
