Manchester City v Chelsea betting preview
Man City have won 15 and lost just one of their last 16 home matchesManchester City returned to the top of the Premier League table in midweek with an away win over Everton but they are now three points below Liverpool following the Reds' win over Bournemouth on Saturday. At home Pep Guardiola’s side have won all but 1 of their 13 Premier League matches this season, scoring an absurd 43 goals in the process. As to direct encounters, the Citizens have lost three of their last five Premier League meetings with Chelsea (W2-D0-L3) but they have only twice lost in nine Etihad encounters with the Blues (W6-D1-L2).
Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling look poised to return to the starting XI after being rested at Goodison Park while Leroy Sane's place is in some doubt. Ilkay Gundogan and Bernardo Silva are xpected to retain their starting berth after impressive performance in recent weeks. Sergio Aguero is favourite over Gabriel Jesus for the central striker berth, altough the Argentine has started the last tow games. Danilo, Fabian Delph and Oleksandr Zinchenko are the alternatives at left-back if Guardiola wants to move Aymeric Laporte back to centre-half. The likes of Vincent Kompany and Benjamin Mendy remain out.
Chelsea have lost their last three away matches in all competitionsChelsea answered some of their recent critics with an emphatic 5-0 thrashing of Huddersfield at Stamford Bridge last Saturday. They finished the round in fourth placed 2 points clear of Manchester United and 3 ahead of Arsenal. Prior to that, the Blues suffered a 4-0 defeat at Bournemouth, their third defeat in a row away from home, without scoring a single goal in the process. The Londoners beat the current champions in the reverse match earlier this season when they were 2-0 winners thanks to goals from Kante and David Luiz.
Maurizio Sarri may choose to bring Antonio Rudiger back into the line-up after he was left on the bench for last weekend's game. The German is set to replace Andreas Christensen in what would be the only change from the XI that started last time out. This means that Marcos Alonso will get the nod over Emerson Palmieri as left-back while Willian and Mateo Kovacic are favourites over Pedro and Ross Barkley for the right wing and central midfield spots respectively. Gonzalo Higuain will lead the line for the Blues, with Eden Hazard completing the front trio. Callum Hudson-Odoi and Gary Cahill are minor doubts but they should not be involved from the off.
Manchester City v Chelsea Starting LineupsManchester City (4-3-3): Ederson, Walker, Otamendi, Stones, Laporte; Fernandinho, De Bruyne, Gundogan; Sterling, Bernardo Silva, Aguero.
Chelsea (4-3-3); Kepa; Azpilicueta, Rudiger, David Luiz, Alonso; Jorginho, Kante, Kovacic; Willian, Hazard, Higuain.
