Manchester City is Right on Arsenal’s Heels

Sergio Aguero Manchester City Premier League

Two clubs that many expected to battle for the Premier League crown are set to square off at Stamford Bridge as Chelsea hosts Manchester City in Saturday’s final match. Sadly, neither of these powerhouses will win the title, but City can keep the pressure on Arsenal for third place with a three-point haul.

Shark Bites
  • Manchester City won the reverse fixture 3-0 back on August 16.
  • Chelsea has just one win in its last seven home games (1 W, 6 D).
  • Five of the previous seven PL meetings have been UNDER 2.5 goals.

There is value to be had here as Chelsea is +175, the Draw is +240 and Manchester City is +170 in moneyline markets at online book Bet365. OVER 2.5 goals is currently -118 while UNDER 2.5 goals is -105.

The Citizens sit just two points back of Arsenal entering the weekend with the Gunners hosting Crystal Palace Sunday afternoon. They’ve won back-to-back matches and have outscored their opponents (Bournemouth and West Brom) 6-1 in the process.

City will be buoyed by the fact that they’ve advanced to the semifinal stage of the Champions League and will face Real Madrid.

Chelsea had been a train wreck for the majority of the season, but has performed much better since Louis van Gaal took over coaching duties. The Blues sit 10th in the table on 44 points but are coming off a 1-0 loss to Swansea their time out.
