Chelsea v Manchester City Betting Preview 

Chelsea sit top of the table following an imperious start to the season and are joint top of the table after five matches, having dropped their only two points away to Liverpool in a match that saw them play for over 45 minutes with 10 men. The Blues also recorded a 4-3 EFL Cup penalty shootout win over Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday. They have already won the European Super Cup and its Champions League group-stage opener.

Manchester City have been a little up and down as their failure to sign a new star central striker to replace Sergio Aguero is a little concerning. Pep Guardiola's men were held to a 0-0 draw at home by Southampton last weekend, in which they failed to register a shot on goal. That result meanth they have drawn three blanks in eight matches so far this season. Man City now trail Chelsea by three points. They were beaten by this opposition 1-0 in last season’s Champions League final and this could give the Cityzens extra motivations.

As to direct encounters, the 1-0 victory over Man City in the Champions League final represented Chelsea’s third win in a row across all competitions and all three were masterminded by manager Thomas Tuchel, who only took over the squad in January.

Probable Line-ups

Chelsea (3-4-2-1): Mendy; Christensen, Thiago Silva, Rudiger; Azpilicueta, Kante, Jorginho, Alonso; Havertz, Ziyech; Lukaku

Mason Mount has been ruled out of the game after suffering a minor injury last Wednesday while Christian Pulisic is still sidelined with ankle trouble, and Benjamin Mendy is still in jail. Goalkeeper Edouard Mendy has recovered and will start between the posts. Romelu Lukaku will spearhead the attack, with Kai Havertz and Hakim Ziyech behind him. Timo Werner provide a further offensive option. N'Golo Kante could replace Mateo Kovacic in the middle of the park, while Marcos ALonso and Cesar Azpilicueta should be the starting wing backs, ahead of Reece James and Ben Chilwell.

Manchester City (4-3-3): Ederson; Walker, Dias, Ake, Cancelo; De Bruyne, Fernandinho, Gundogan; Sterling, Torres, Grealish

The visitors have a number of injury issues as Aymeric Laporte, Oleksandr Zinchenko, Ilkay Gundogan John Stones and Rodri are all doubtful and will face late fitness tests. Nathan Ake missed the midweek Carabao Cup win over Wycombe to attend his father's funeral, but is expected to return against his former club. The likes of Raheem Sterling, Ferran Torres and Jack Grealish are expected to lead the line, with Gabriel Jesus and Bernardo Silva viable backup options.

Our Chelsea v Manchester City Predictions  

Chelsea will go six points above Manchester City if Thomas Tuchel records his fourth consecutive victory over Pep Guardiola. The Spanish manager has never lost four consecutive times to any opponent. Another tight, low-scoring match should be expected. We back the draw and the 1-1 scoreline. The 30/1 price boost offered by William Hill for both teams to score is worth a bet too!
