Manchester City to Win

Reason for tip

City have won 14 of their last 15 matches in all competitions, while they’ve won their last 11 Premier League games on the spin. Chelsea have lost four defenders ahead of this encounter and their first-choice goalkeeper, so back City to take advantage.

Manchester City 2-1

Reason for tip

Man City have conceded in three of their last four games despite their winning streak. City should prove too strong for this Chelsea defence, who are missing key personnel. However, the Blues are still strong up front and they should score in this trip.

De Bruyne has scored in City’s last two home league games, hitting three goals after returning to the side. Additionally, he has struck in three of his last four Premier League clashes with his former club.

Manchester City vs Chelsea Predictions

  • City have won 14 of their last 15 in all competitions
  • The Citizens are on an 11-game winning run in the league
  • Chelsea have failed to win four of their last five league games
  • Kevin De Bruyne has scored in three of his last four meeting meetings with Chelsea

Another final for Blues

Chelsea booked their place in the Carabao Cup final in midweek with a 3-0 aggregate win over Tottenham. That victory means that within 350 days of taking over Thomas Tuchel has guided them to three cup finals, but there’s arguably a fourth coming up for the Blues this weekend.

Tuchel’s side have slipped 10 points shy of Man City after failing to win four of their last five in the league. Meanwhile, the defending champions are flying and their winning run has them in total control at the top of the standings. Chelsea need a victory at the Etihad to have any hope of turning things around.

Stellar City hard to catch

Man City have won 14 of their last 15 games, only slipping up in a dead rubber Champions League trip to Leipzig. In the league the Citizens have once again blown everyone away with an end-of-year streak, winning 11 on the spin.

City overcame Arsenal on New Year’s Day to keep that going and they’ll be in no mood to slip up against the Blues. City have won eight of their 10 home league games this term and they’ve won an incredible 17 of 21 league games so far.

De Bruyne can fire City to victory

City are motoring along and they head into this clash having won their last two at home in the league 6-3 and 7-0. That brilliant return has seen Kevin De Bruyne return to his best, scoring three times across the two games.

De Bruyne has scored in three of his last four Premier League games against Chelsea, recording an assist during that run as well. The Belgian should be full of confidence and he’s good value to continue his good form against his former club.

With their star man back to his best back City to overcome a Chelsea side who are missing three important defenders. The hosts are worth backing to continue their winning streak, while I’m going with a 2-1 home win given City have conceded in three of their last four victories.

Man City predicted lineup: Ederson; Walker, Dias, Laporte, Cancelo; Gundogan, Rodri, De Bruyne; Jesus, Silva, Sterling

Chelsea predicted lineup: Kepa; Christensen, Silva, Rudiger; Azpilicueta, Jorginho, Kovacic, Alonso; Havertz, Mount, Lukaku
