Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Chelsea fell to a second defeat in three Premier League matches after a shock 2-1 loss against Wolves at the Molineux Stadium. Despite taking the lead, the Blues showed complacency and were punished by Nuno’s men.
Manchester City had to work hard in order to pick up a 2-1 victory over Watford in the midweek action. This was the 13th victory of the campaign for City, who are still unbeaten in the division.
City were able to enjoy a 1-0 win over Chelsea in the recent visit to Stamford Bridge back in September 2017. Our betting tips and predictions expect a victory for Manchester City.

Chelsea are at an incredible price to win this match. Despite being unbeaten at home since April, it does not make sense to back a win for Chelsea. Manchester City have been the superiority in the Premier League by a huge distance and the two-point advantage over Liverpool should not be a barometer on this front. Even after making several changes to the squad in the midweek action, City were still able to come up with a strong performance. City have been able to claim three consecutive wins over Chelsea – including a comfortable success in the Community Shield early in the campaign. Our preview sees an excellent value in place to back City.

Correct Score odds
Manchester City have been better compared to every team in the Premier League this season and this is especially true in terms of scoring goals. City’s return of two goals against Watford is not a fair reflection of their dominance. This game will be a battle of two teams that try to dictate possession, but City are just better at this stage in terms of confidence and momentum. Our correct score prediction would go with a 2-1 win for City.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The last six matches involving Manchester City have ended up producing over 2.5 goals without exception. Chelsea have enough power on the counter-attack to trouble City’s defence, which has not been full proof by any stretch of imagination. Our total goals prediction would go with over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Sergio Aguero was not risked for the game against Watford, and the Argentine is likely to miss the game due to his groin injury. Leroy Sane has been in outstanding form with goals in six out of his last 10 games for club and country. His pace has helped open up opposition time and time again. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Sane.
