Mateo Kovacic is the only player set to be missing out from the Chelsea squad owing to a knock injury. Tuchel after taking over the reins from Lampard has been spectacular with his tactics and has had a major role to play in making Chelsea compete for titles yet again. Tammy Abraham has scored four goals in the competition so far making him the highest goal scorer for Chelsea this year in the FA cup. Timo Werner has found his footing while Kai Havertz and Olivier Giroud have all become major forces.

Our Tipster’s Angle

Pep’s men are playing like a dream and there are so brilliantly placed that they have a chance to win the treble this season. Chelsea on the other hand barring the Premier League, too have a chance to win a couple of trophies as well. But here, Chelsea will face a Man City side with records stacked against them. Man City could go on to win here based on their current form and head to head record. A good number of goals expected from this fixture.

Tip 1: Total Goals Over 2.5

All of their last three matches played between the two sides across competitions have had more than 2.5 goals in total. While playing at Stamford Bridge, both of their last two head to head meetings have ended up with more than 2.5 goals in total. They had also met at Chelsea in the FA cup some years ago which being the only meeting between the two sides in this particular championship in this particular venue also turned out to have more than 2.5 goals. Chelsea in the last four matches played across competitions have had two games where the above condition was satisfied. Man City on the other hand have had all of their last three games where the total goals were over 2.5. So with this, we can say the total goals will more likely be more than 2.5. The odds for Total goals to be over 2.5 is 1.95 according to the Casumo Sportsbook.

Tip 2: Both Teams To Score

In the last three head to head meetings between the two sides across competitions, all three matches ended up having both teams scoring. Their last two matches played at Chelsea also had scorelines where both teams ended up on the scoresheet. In the FA cup match played at Chelsea, Man City and Chelsea played out a high-scoring classic with Chelsea winning 5-1 which also has both teams scoring. Chelsea have a 50 percent chance of both teams scoring in their last four matches across competitions. Man City have a 100 percent chance of both teams scoring in all their last three matches across competitions. While playing away in this tournament, Man City have had two of the three games where both teams scored. So we can safely say both teams might end up scoring. According to the Casumo Sportsbook, the odds for Both teams to score is 1.79.


Manchester City are in for a chance to win a treble given their position in three competitions. Chelsea can still win two trophies. Two brilliant managers set to face off for a place in the final. Summarising on a couple of bets from above:
