CHELSEA v MANCHESTER CITY BETTING PREVIEWChelsea lost to Swansea last weekend and the Blues are already looking forward to next season with nothing left to play for. The Blues have won only five of their home games this season, with no less than 11 clubs leaving Stamford Bridge with at least a point. Hiddink's men can still boast an 8 unbeaten record at home, but they won just 2 out of those as 6 of those were draws.
Guus Hiddink will have Diego Costa following the forward's three match suspension. John Terry had treatment on an Achilles injury and will certainly not be available. He will be replaced by Branislav Ivanovic while Kenedy will cover the righ back position. Ruben Loftus-Cheek has started the last two matches in the number ten role in the 4-2-3-1 formation and may keep his place in the side. Nemanja Matic is available, whereas Eden Hazard is 50/50. They are expected to start on the bench.
Manchester City booked their place in the UEFA Champions League semi-finals with a 1-0 second-leg win over PSG on Tuesday night. Pellegrini’s side currently occupy the final qualifying spot in Premier League and their qualification for next season’s competition is far from secure. The Citizens followed up their emphatic 4-0 win over Bournemouth with a 2-1 triumph at home West Brom.
Manuel Pellegrini is without David Silva for the trip to Stamford Bridge. Yaya Toure was benched for their clash against PSG following a knee injury and should be replaced by Jesus Navas once again. Raheem Sterling is also still ruled out through injury. In defense, Vincent Kompany is losing his race to be fit and this means that Otamendi and Mangala will retain their starting berth.
Chelsea thrashed City 5-1 when they met last, but that saw Manuel Pellegrini field a team of youngsters in the FA Cup. The reverse fixture was a 3-0 City win at the Etihad Stadium on August 16.
