2017-18 EPL: Chelsea vs Manchester City Betting Tips

September 29, 2017 by Posted in Soccer Tips

It is a blockbuster clash at the Stamford Bridge on Saturday, September 30th as Champions Chelsea welcome high-scoring Manchester City in the English Premier League. Without a shadow of doubt, this is going to be the clash of the week.

Season so far
It was a poor start to the season for Chelsea as they lost 3-2 at home to Burnley. But, Antonio Conte’s men have picked up pace ever since staying unbeaten in the next five Premier League encounters. They now have 13 points after six matches and are third in the table.

Topping that table is the free-flowing Manchester City. Pep Guardiola looks to have found the right mix of attacking flair and creative intent to lead his side to the top. With 16 points from six matches, 21 goals scored and just two goals conceded, this City side look almost unbeatable.

Chance for Chelsea to underline their credentials
With all the focus on the two Manchester clubs, Chelsea have managed to flow under the radar with a stable campaign to their domestic and European campaign. Questions over their title credentials can be put to bed if they can find a way to success over their nearest contenders this weekend.


For City, this match provides an opportunity to lay down a marker in the title race. Pep’s team looks to have been scoring goals for fun and that could once again be the case this Saturday. Not even an injury to Sergio Aguero look good enough to puncture their form.

Key Stats and battles
For all their scoring prowess in this campaign, Stamford Bridge is a tough tour for City. Having won only once in five games across all competitions, City have a major mindset hurdle to cross.

Last year, Chelsea did a double over their opponents, on their way to a second League title.

Chelsea are primed to win this contest at odds of $2.60 (William Hill) while City’s win comes at odds of $2.80 (William Hill). Don’t rule out a draw that is offered at odds of $3.50 (bet365). City look good to win.

TIP: Manchester City to win – $2.80 at William Hill

The cracking form of Alvaro Morata is a positive for the hosts. At odds of $2.30 (bet365), back the Spaniard to score a goal anytime in the match.
