They are currently seven points behind leaders Arsenal and will need to improve in their remaining games to catch up with Mikel Arteta’s team.
The defending champions, on the other hand, are now anticipating a very demanding and crowded schedule across contests.
In the upcoming four days, the Citizens will play teams like Chelsea twice. By January 19th, they will also face Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League.
There are several well-known players Pep Guardiola may choose from to fill in for these matches, but his most recent choices for the Citizens fell short.
On the plus side, Chelsea’s recent performance hasn’t been any better for their supporters. With so many players hurt, it seems like Graham Potter is still trying to find the right way to run things at Stamford Bridge.
In the 1-1 draw away at Nottingham Forest last Saturday, the Blues did not look good at all. Even escaping with a point from the City Ground was a stroke of luck.
With only seven victories in their first 16 games of the season, Chelsea is now tenth in the Premier League standings.
In their last six games across all competitions, they have only scored six goals, including one friendly match against Aston Villa in December (a 1-0 defeat).
Chelsea vs Manchester City – Betting Analysis
Mid-November saw these two teams square off again in the League Cup third round, where Manchester City triumphed 2-0 at Etihad Stadium.
Overall, in the previous 80 home games versus the Citizens, Chelsea had won 40, tied 21, and lost 19.
Manchester City will enter this match having defeated the Blues three times in a row, despite the Blues failing to score each time.
Given that Chelsea have recently struggled to score goals, backing Manchester City to win to nil at 2.75 odds is the best bet.
Man City’s 0-2 victory is available as a correct score wager at odds of 8.50. Remember that Chelsea went three games without scoring against the Citizens?
We believe Chelsea may find it difficult to score goals against this Manchester City team, who we believe may win and very well keep a clean sheet.
What are the top odds for the game?
Looking at the bookies’ prices on the full-time result market, a victory for Chelsea is best priced at 5.45, backing the game finishing all-square is 4.2, and selecting Manchester City as the winning team comes in at 1.62. These are the best prices available at the moment.
