Chelsea v Manchester City betting tips – City slickers set for Bridge win

Posted on: 6th December 2018

Maurizio Sarri said at the beginning of the season that his team weren’t quite at the same level as Manchester City and Liverpool.

Whether that was reverse psychology or a genuine conviction, the Italian is being proved right and his Chelsea side have recently slumped to defeats away to Spurs and Wolves.

Sarri is known for his love of cigarettes and there was smoke coming out of his ears at Molineux, with some of the players showing a lack of application against a team who just out-worked their opponents.

We might expect a reaction from the Blues when they face Manchester City although it’s still a tall order to see them getting anything against a team who just about got over the line at Vicarage Road on Tuesday.

Pep Guardiola’s side were in control of the match at 2-0 before a late Watford goal saw the Citizens hanging on, although they will welcome back Raheem Sterling to the starting line-up, while Aymeric Laporte and Ilkay Gundogan should also feature in this clash.

City have only wobbled twice on the road and one of those matches saw the champions of England force the issue at Anfield and win a late penalty before Riyad Mahrez skied the ball over the crossbar.

If they can get that close to beating Liverpool on their own patch, they have to have a strong chance of getting the better of a Chelsea side who are starting to wade through a sticky patch.

Eden Hazard is the one player who can win a match although the Belgian can’t do things singlehandedly and there are now defensive issues and a lack of scoring form for Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud.
