Correct football prediction for Man City – Chelsea
Premier League champions Manchester City host Chelsea at the Etihad in a match from the 22th round of the competition. Here we go with our correct football prediction for this fixture.
Pep Guardiola’s Man City is causing some waves with its performance lately. The team is enjoying a terrific run of 11 consecutive wins in the league. This allows the Cityzens to lead the standings with 10 points advantage in front of their next opponent Chelsea.
In the previous round Manchester City didn’t have it easy, but they did the job against Arsenal at the Emirates. The Gunners opened the score in the first half, but Riyad Mahrez equalised for the champions. They snatched the win with a winning goal from Rodri in the 93th minute of the game.
It’d be curious what Guardiola intends to do with his record signing Jack Grealish. He cost 100 million last summer, but didn’t play a minute against Arsenal in the previous game.
The European champions Chelsea will face Man City just few days after facing Tottenham Hotspur in the Carabao Cup. This means that manager Thomas Tuchel must build a plan how to keep the team fresh in these two matches. He will has to do some rotations and he must do them smart.
Chelsea are having problems with their performance in the Premier League lately – the Blues made four draws in their last five games in the league. That’s the main reason why they are now 10 points behind Man City in the standings. In their last game Chelsea faced Liverpool and only got a point after a 2-2 draw at the Stamford Bridge.
That’s the correct football prediction for the Premier League derby between Manchester City and Chelsea. The Cityzens could go 13 points clear at top if they win this one. That’s some great motivation for them to do it.
