Posted: 02/12/2016 - 09:30
Manchester City take on Chelsea in the next game of the Premier League. They meet for the 1st time this season in what is the 14th round of the 2016/17 season. It will be Chelseaís 1st time back to the Etihad Stadium in over a year when these teams met at the end of the 2015/16 season. Will we have a repeat of that game or will Chelsea redeem themselves from the previous 3-0 loss? Chelsea are currently sitting on top of the table and City will be out to gun them down and overtake them in this game. City are in 3rd place, only a single point behind Chelsea. Liverpool sit between the 2 and are tied on points with Man City. Man City did occupy the top spot for quite a while and were leading but 2 drawn games allowed them to be overtaken. Southampton and Middlesbrough were the culprits who held them to 1-1 draws. While this was happening, Chelsea won 7 consecutive games and piled on the points eventually overtaking City. Despite these differences only 1 point separates these teams. From their 13 games, Chelsea have 10 wins. Along with the 10 wins they have 1 draw. That leaves them with 31 points and only 2 losses. Again, itís the drawn results that hold Man City back. City also have 13 games played. They have 9 wins and only 1 loss, 1 less loss than Chelsea. Yet they are behind because they have drawn 3 games. Apart from that, the teams are performing almost identically. City and Chelsea have the exact same number of goals scored, 29, and in goals conceded only 2 extra goals conceded on Cityís behalf separate the teams. 29 goals from 13 games is quite good and is only topped by Liverpool with 32. They both have an average of 2+ goals per game, which is impressive.
City have been stand out since day 1 and only find themselves in this position because a few things didnít go their way. Theyíve only been beaten once and are still within 1 point of Chelsea at the top. We believe they will win this game and balance will be restored and they will return to where they came from. Manchester City to win 11/10 with Bet365.
Chelsea have the most wins of any team in the Premier League right now. Manchester City have still managed to keep in touch with them despite this. We predict a win for City where they will then overtake Chelsea at the top of the table. Manchester City 2-1, 17/2 with Bet365.
Both of these teams have 29 goals scored in 13 games, thatís more than 2 goals per game. We strongly believe the total number of goals will be over 1.5. Total goals over 1.5, 2/9 with 10Bet.
Chelsea have enjoyed their time at the top but City will be eager to evict them. Chelsea do have the most wins so far in the competition but City have still managed to stay within touching distance of them. After a week of erratic results which allowed Chelsea to bypass everyone and go to the top, they will soon back where they belong. Manchester City to win.
