Club football heads to Wembley this weekend and the first of two semi-finals is the fixture everyone’s focus will be geared towards on Saturday.
Quadruple-chasing Manchester City face a Chelsea side rejuvenated by the arrival of Thomas Tuchel, and with the other semi-final pitting Leicester against Southampton the winner of Saturday’s clash will be heavy favourites to lift the trophy next month.
With the game televised live on BBC One many punters will be looking to build their own bet for Saturday evening’s clash, so to save you from the hard work we’ve delved into all the stats and plucked out some of the best value options when building a same-game accumulator.
10/1 Chelsea vs Man City bet builder tip
Match result market
It’s very difficult to look beyond Manchester City in any match they play right now. Their comeback against Borussia Dortmund in midweek made it 28 wins from their last 30 competitive games and, while Chelsea have bounced back since their humiliation against West Brom, that 5-2 defeat did show their vulnerabilities.
Pep Guardiola’s side have won 14 of their last 15 FA Cup ties, and we’re expecting them to reach the final this evening.
Bet builder tip: Manchester City to win
Both teams to score market
Manchester City have put in some excellent defensive displays this season but the last couple of weeks have seen them drop off somewhat. They conceded twice against Leeds last weekend and have now seen both teams score in each of their last three.
Chelsea have scored in 14 of their 18 games under Tuchel and have looked impenetrable at the back at times, but keeping Manchester City out is another matter entirely. The Citizens have only failed to score once in 2021 so far and even Chelsea’s solid back-line will struggle to keep them at bay.
Bet builder tip: Both teams to score
Chelsea and Manchester City are two of the Premier League’s most prolific sides when it comes to winning corners. They have both averaged over six corners per game in the top flight this season and Manchester City’s 209 league corners puts them at the top of the leaderboard.
Chelsea are just behind Liverpool in third and we can expect plenty of corner flag action on Saturday.
Bet builder tip: Over 9.5 corners
Pep-roulette has often stung punters when looking at the goalscorer and shots markets, but if one man can stake a claim to be the first name on the teamsheet it’s Kevin De Bruyne.
Manchester City’s Belgian wizard has averaged just over a shot on target per game for Manchester City this season and he looks the perfect option to test Edouard Mendy.
Bet builder tip: Kevin De Bruyne 1+ shot on target
