Manchester City vs. Chelsea Predictions

Prediction, Odds & Betting Tips for Manchester City vs. Chelsea at English Premier League

  • Where: Etihad Stadium, Manchester, England
  • When: Sunday, February 18, 01:30 AM

The champions square off with unpredictable Chelsea on Saturday night. They need to win this one and stay behind Liverpool, knowing that with a game in hand, they are in control of their destiny in the title race. Chelsea needs to push hard to reach the spot which leads to the international stage. The Champions League is out of reach, and for sure, the Blues won’t catch up with the top four teams in the Premiership, trailing 13 points at the moment.

Manchester City

City didn’t lose for the past 13 games, winning 12 and having just one tie. Right now, the English, European and world champs have 10 wins in a row, which is a magnificent stretch.

What makes it more impressive is the fact that only once during this interval, City didn’t net at least two goals, and if you remember, Erling Haaland was injured for quite a while. Though Alvarez, Foden, Silva, and the rest of the crew covered his absence perfectly, so it’s no wonder that Guardiola’s machinery didn’t slow down.

The Citizens are the only team besides Liverpool not to lose at home this year, having eight wins and three ties in 11 appearances at the Etihad. Their goal difference is 29-10.


The Blues won back-to-back events, beating Aston Villa in the FA Cup on the road, 1-3, and then Crystal Palace at Selhurst with the same result. They were trailing at against Palace on Monday night, but a superb second half turned the situation in their favor. 

Gallagher, with a brace, and Enzo Fernandez flipped the result, with two goals coming in the injury time, which created an even greater momentum for the Blues, who experienced a very nasty period in the weeks before. 

Chelsea’s games are efficient, as four of the past five ended with at least four goals and both teams netting. The Blues’ defense is highly unstable and knows to oscillate a lot, the same as the attack, which still performs at a better level.
