Chelsea vs Manchester City Betting Tips

Chelsea are hosting Manchester City in the Stamford Bridge, London on the 25th of September 2021, Saturday at 17:00 IST. The European champions are facing their next real test after Tottenham last week in the form of a rampaging Manchester City who were held to a shocking draw against Southampton last week.

Chelsea Form and Team News

Chelsea along with Manchester City and Liverpool have conceded the least number of goals so far with just one goal, also like City, Chelsea have also starting to lit up the league with goals from everywhere. They have won four games while drawing an intense game against Liverpool. They were down and out at the halfway stage of the season last time around and boy did they make amends later on, they won almost everything on the way and eventually ended up defeating favorites Manchester City to the European title midway through this year. The League form is something that they can start revisiting from here on and start winning more often here to win the title eventually. Chelsea’s recent form has been staggering as they are yet to lose in the last ten matches. Chelsea have just one way to go and that is skywards, they are starting to look unstoppable by all standards. 

Tuchel came into the side when they were in total shambles after the failed Lampard experiment and how he converted the same unit into a winning machine is a matter of absolute managerial masterclass from the German. He made some tweaks to combinations and players started to believe in themselves before unleashing their fullest in the game. They have a talented and lethal bunch of youngsters in the squad which augurs well for the team in the future as well. Lukaku has been a splendid addition to the blues and he is looking the part as well which is the most important part. 

Manchester City Form and Team News

Man City have hit the third-most goals so far and conceded the least goals as well, but still they find themselves in the fifth position due to a loss at the hands of Tottenham in the first game and a goal-less draw against Southampton in the last game. They were one of the best clubs in the world last season and as it has been for many seasons now, but even the league titles speak for themselves, the hunt for a European championship is still happening, and they faltered in the final last time around. They finished the league as the number one team, they were so dominant in the league that they were confirmed with the title even before the last three games of the season. This season however with the sort of start that the City team have had to endure, its more than likely the manager will have to turn the tables around for a more consistent layer of performances. 

Superstar manager Pep Guardiola has been instrumental in Man City winning multiple league titles in the past few years, but his conundrum of not being able to win the European Championship after the famous Barcelona reign in 2011 is still up for debate, he could’ve buried the conversation had he won the championship last season, but that was not to be. Jack Grealish has brought to the table that creativity they were lacking in the middle of the park whose source earlier used to be only a certain Kevin De Bruyne. Now they have the luxury of playing both in the middle for sustained pressing.
