Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Chelsea and Manchester City face each other in a highly-anticipated clash at Stamford Bridge on Thursday evening. The Blues restarted the season with a come-from-behind win over Aston Villa, with the team retaining their spot in top four. Christian Pulisic deserves all the credits for the comeback, and, no doubt, the USA international is likely to return to the starting XI against Man City.
The Citizens aim to melt Liverpool’s big advantage in the Premier League table, and given the attacking potential of the two sides, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. Frank Lampard has a full squad to choose from, with Pep Guardiola likely to count on key players for the midweek showdown as well. In the first half of the season Man City recorded a 2-1 win over Chelsea Etihad Stadium. A man to keep an eye on in the away team will be Kevin de Bruyne, who is enjoying yet another successful season.
