- 5:30 pm: Manchester City v Chelsea
Manchester City v Chelsea Betting PreviewManchester City can officially clinch a third domestic title triumph in four years if they beat Chelsea. They will be high on confidence after beating 2-0 Paris Saint Germain at home on Tuesday and knocking out the French champions by 4-1 on aggregate. Prior to that, they recorded a routine victory over Crystal Palace (2-0) last weekend, meaning they have won 20 of their last 22 Premier League matches.
Chelsea are currently three points clear of fifth and still need to secure a top four place in case they lose to City in the UCL final. Thomas Tuchel continues to work wonders in his first few months in charge. They reeached the FA Cup final by beating Manchester City 1-0 few weeks ago and will play the Champions League final against Pep Guardiola's side on May 29 after beating Real Madrid 2-0 at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.
Who is the Manchester City vs Chelsea favourite?The bookmakers have City as the favourites with Boylesports pricing them at 20/21 odds-on to win. A draw is 5/2 with Unibet while a victory for Chelsea is currently 7/2 at Betvictor!

Probable Line-UpsManchester City (4-3-3): Ederson; Cancelo, Dias, Laporte, Mendy; Rodri, Gundogan, De Bruyne; Mahrez, Foden, Sterling
The hosts have no injury concerns but they will be without John Stones who will serve the final game of his three-match ban after his sending off against Aston Villa. Aymeric Laporte is expected to partner Ruben Dias at the heart of the back. Elsewhere, Pep Guardiola is likely to select something a lot closer to a full-strength side for this clash, following league run-outs for the likes of Sergio Aguero, Benjamin Mendy and Nathan Ake in recent weeks. The likes of Phil Foden, Raheem Sterling and Riyad Mahrez should lead the line.
Chelsea (3-4-2-1): Mendy; Zouma, Rudiger, Christensen; James, Jorginho, Kante, Alonso; Mount, Pulisic; Havertz
Mateo Kovacic is not expected to be ready in time for this game, meaning Jorginho and N'Golo Kante should continue to man the engine room.Mason Mount and Christian Pulisic should support the lone striker, with Kai Havertz favourite over Timo Werner for that role. Marcos Alonso should give Ben Chilwell a deserved day off, while Reece James is favourite over Cesar Azpilicueta for the left side. At the back, Kurt Zouma is likely to replace 36-year-old Thiago Silva.
Our Manchester City v Chelsea Predictions
The Citizens are on a five-game winning streak across all competitions. They have won this corresponding fixture for the past three seasons and will benefit from having an extra day to recover from their midweek European duty. So, expect City to grab the victory but Chelsea should prove a tough nut to crack (just one goal conceded in the last 6 outings), so we go for the 1-0 scoreline in the Correct Score market.
