Viewers have to wait until Monday evening for the weekend’s biggest contest, a showdown between Manchester City and Chelsea that could definitely have implications where the destination of the Premier League title is concerned.
The hosts’ hundred percent record at the Etihad Stadium means they’re odds-on favourites at 20/23 with BetVictor to secure a vital three points while Jose Mourinho’s men, who have City’s rampant attack to contain, are William Hill’s 7/2 outsiders and it’s 14/5 via bet365 to finish all square.
A clash of the titans such as this will inevitably attract stalemate cash and it follows that there’ll be money for both a 1-1 scoreline at 7/1 (Ladbrokes) and BetVictor’s 15/4 about the match finishing in a score draw.
However, the home form of Manuel Pellegrini’s team simply can’t be ignored and even though the Blues have a better chance than most of restricting the free-scoring hosts given their solid defence on the road, City can nick it.
They’re 29/10 with Ladbrokes to do so by a one-goal margin and a generous 17/2 courtesy of Winner.com to register a 1-0 victory while Alvaro Negredo, who has struck an impressive nine times in his last six appearances, is a 9/2 chance at Stan James to break the deadlock.
