Why Bet On Manchester City?Why should you consider betting on Manchester City (13-2-0) in this match? Well, the most obvious reason is that they have yet to be beaten – by anyone – this season. Man City has won two straight since a draw against Lyon that closed out November and they come into this match off a 2-1 win over Watford on Tuesday.
The Sky Blues controlled possession 79 percent of the match and got goals from Leroy Sane and Riyad Mahrez in the win. Manchester City has scored a league-leading 45 goals while giving up just seven goals to rank second to Liverpool’s league-low of six.
Why Bet on Chelsea?Why should you consider betting on Chelsea in this match? The best reason is that they’re a legitimate contender that is currently in fourth place in the EPL standings at 9-4-2. Chelsea will also have a ton of motivation to get back in the win column after falling to The Wolves 2-1 on Wednesday.
Chelsea was surprisingly dominated at both ends of the ice and was limited to just three shots despite controlling the ball 71.0 percent of the time. Chelsea has 31 goals on the season while allowing 13.
Expert Analysis and PredictionI’m not going to waste a lot of time with my pick here simply because I believe that Manchester City is a virtual lock to get the convincing win in this one. I’m not trying to knock a Chelsea team that is very good this season, it’s just that Manchester City has been great through 15 games.
Manchester City’s 45 goals are 11 more than the team with the second-most goals (Arsenal) and as previously mentioned, they’re just as elite at the other end of the pitch. Manchester City will win this match to remain unbeaten everyone!
