Pick your own money-back: Chelsea v Man City
Chelsea hosts Manchester City at Stamford Bridge in London on Saturday, January 31 in what could be a potential English Premier League decider between the league’s top two teams. Chelsea heads into the match in first place with a five-point lead over the reigning champions from Manchester. City can’t afford a loss in this showdown if they realistically hope to retain their crown. Chelsea has the edge over City recently with four wins, two draws and just two defeats in their past eight meetings against them. Chelsea has also won all 10 of their league games at home this campaign.
Chelsea played on Tuesday when they beat Liverpool 1-0 after extra time at Stamford Bridge in the second leg of their League Cup semifinal to advance to the final 2-1 on aggregate. They’ll meet Spurs at Wembley on March 1 in an all-London clash. The Blues have managed to keep eight clean sheets in their past 11 league contests including five in a row at home. Manager Jose Mourinho may be without top scorer Diego Costa though as he’s been charged by the FA for stamping on Emre Can of Liverpool on Tuesday night.
Man City has won just once in their past 16 away games at Chelsea and have a lone win in their past four league games overall with a pair of draws and a loss. City lost 2-0 at home to Arsenal in their last league outing, but they’ve lost only once on the road this season and have been victorious in four of their past five away encounters. City and Chelsea played to a 1-1 draw in Manchester earlier this season when former Chelsea legend Frank Lampard equaled the game for 10-man City with five minutes to go.
