Today’s Betting Tips for Chelsea vs Man City

Man City need a victory to reignite their faltering Premier League title defence when they head south to take on Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Thursday. Read our top predictions for this week’s fixture below.

Man City to Win

It feels like he’s only there a wet day, but pressure is already starting to build on new Chelsea boss Graham Potter and fresh doubts about his acumen surfaced on New Year’s Day following the Blues’ dismal showing at Nottingham Forest. Chelsea have now won only once in their last seven attempts in the Premier League and their performances remain flat enough to suggest they will struggle against Man City on Thursday. The Cityzens sleepwalked through their 1-1 draw with Everton last time out, but with Arsenal starting to disappear over the horizon at the table’s summit, we expect the defending champions to play with renewed focus in London. Side with the much-stronger visitors here.

Erling Haaland to Score Anytime

Erling Haaland rarely fails to deliver the goods and despite being fed fewer opportunities than usual against Everton last week, the Norwegian hotshot still managed to convert a half chance. The 22-year-old has now plundered 21 goals in just 15 appearances in his maiden Premier League campaign and he is on course to break all sorts of long-standing top tier records before May. A Haaland goal usually comes with the match ticket and we recommend backing the lethal finisher to register anytime again on Thursday.

Chelsea vs Man City Team News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for Thursday’s Premier League tussle between Chelsea and Man City below.

Chelsea

Chelsea still have a lengthy list of big-name absentees and N’Golo Kante, Reece James and Wesley Fofana are still sidelined for the Blues. Ben Chilwell, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Edouard Mendy and Armando Broja are also set to miss out. Chelsea dropped to 9th place in the division following their draw at Forest.

Predicted Lineup for Chelsea: Kepa – Azpilicueta, Chalobah, Silva, Cucurella – Kovacic, Jorginho, Mount – Sterling, Pulisic, Havertz

Man City

Ruben Dias is out for City as he steps up his recovery from a hamstring injury, while fellow centre-half Aymeric Laporte, who has a back problem, is rated as 50/50. Julian Alvarez is back in the camp, though he might need some time to get back up to speed following his World Cup-winning celebrations.

Predicted Lineup for Man City: Ederson – Walker, Stones, Ake, Cancelo – Rodri, Gundogan, de Bruyne – Foden, Silva, Haaland

Player to Watch – Raheem Sterling

Raheem Sterling hasn’t quite lived up to expectations following his big-money move to Chelsea, though the England winger did manage to nab his fourth Premier League goal of the campaign when he notched against Forest on Sunday. Sterling, of course, will be desperate to showcase his skills against his former employers, Man City, on Thursday, though he will need to drag his performance levels up to make an impact.

Starting Lineups

Official lineups are usually released approximately one hour before kick-off.
