Chelsea vs Manchester City betting preview  

Chelsea will be pretty low on confidence after losing 6-0 to City two weeks ago

Chelsea and Manchester City go head to head at Wembley to compete in the final of the EFL Cup final on February 24. The Blues have lost three of the last 4 league games - including a 4-0 defeat at Bournemouth - and another poor result to City on Sunday will likely lead to Maurizio Sarri's sacking. Sarri's men are sixth in the EPL table and are struggling to claim a Champions League spot via a top-four finish. Furthermore, Chelsea suffered a 2-0 home defeat in the FA Cup fifth round by Manchester United last weekend. They halted this miserable run of fixtures with a win over Malmo (3-0) in the Europa League on Thursday.

Pedro remains a doubt through illness, as does Davide Zappacosta. Goalkeeper  Kepa missed the Europa League game with a hamstring problem but should feature from the off. Willy Caballero is on standby and will feature between the posts if the 72-million-pounds worth Spaniard doesn't recover in time. Emerson Palmieri, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Andreas Christensen all caught Maurizio Sarri's eye on Thursday and are pushing for a recall. Eden Hazard and Gonzalo Higuain are sure starters up front, as well as N'Golo Kantè and Jorginho in midfield. The likes of Mateo Kovacic and Ross Barkley are in contention for the remaining berth in the middle of the park.

Man City will be odds-on favourites at Wembley given their dominant record in recent times

Manchester City enter the EFL Cup final on the back of Wednesday's 3-2 Champions League win away to Schalke - their 13th victory in 14 matches in all competitions. The Citizens have scored 18 goals during an ongoing run of five successive victories. Considering that Man City are level on points with Liverpool in Premier League, Pep Guardiola's men remain very much in the hunt to win an unprecedented quadruple as they are through to the final of this competition, the Quarter Finals of the FA Cup and the knock-out stages of the Champions League.

The Citizens will hand late fitness tests to Gabriel Jesus, John Stones and Benjamin Mendy but they are not expected to make the starting XI. Pep Guardiola is expected to start Arijanet Muric in goal ahead of Ederson, while the likes of Kyle Walker, Nicolas Otamendi, Aymeric Laporte and Oleksadr Zinchenko will form the four man backline. David Silva was surprisingly benched against Chelsea and could make way again here, leaving Fernandinho, Ilkay Gundogan and Kevin De Bruyne anchoring the midfield. Leroy Sanè was impressive against former club Schalke on Wednesday but the German is expected to be benched again. As a result, Sergio Aguero is likely to be flanked by Raheem Sterling and Bernardo Silva.
