Reason For Chelsea vs Manchester City Betting Tips

It’s been just 2 weeks since these sides met at the Etihad in the Premier League, and that is a day that Maurizio Sarri and his Chelsea crew will find hard to forget. They were obliterated 6-0 by the reigning Premier League champions, breaking the record for their worst ever Premier League defeat and putting Sarri’s job under huge pressure.

Chelsea haven’t exactly bounced back from this thrashing either. They may have beaten Malmo 5-1 on aggregate in the Europa League, but they were incredibly poor on Monday as they were knocked out of the FA Cup by Manchester United.

This inability to cope with the Premier League big boys could come back to haunt them yet again at Wembley. The Blues have lost 5 of their last 7 competitive meetings with their fellow Big Six teams, and each of the last 3 have seen them lose by 2 or more goals.

Manchester City aren’t exactly a team to take it easy on the opposition either. They have won 9 of their last 12 competitive games by at least a 2 goal margin, and this run includes a more than a couple of demolition jobs. They have beaten Rotherham 7-0, Burton Albion 9-0, Burnley 5-0, Arsenal 3-1, and Chelsea 6-0.

In fact, The Citizens have scored some 47 goals in these 12 matches, and they’re facing a Chelsea side who have conceded 14 goals in their last 5 matches away from Stamford Bridge, losing 4 of them.

These worrying signs continue to stack up against Chelsea. Manchester City have scored 5 goals in their last 2 cup games at Wembley, including their 2-0 Community Shield win over Chelsea at the start of this season. They have scored 16 goals in their 5 Carabao Cup games this season too, and given that 6-0 hammering a couple of weeks ago we really like the look of a Manchester City -1.5 Asian Handicap alongside a 3-0 correct score predictions.

We’re also backing the in form Sergio Aguero to find the net. He scored a hat trick against Chelsea earlier this month to take his tally to 15 goals in 18 appearances against the Blues. That includes 5 goals in 3 appearances against them this season alone, and with 10 goals in his last 8 games for Man City we think he’s a great value choice for our anytime goalscorer predictions.
