Tip Chelsea - Manchester City
Manchester City had a 2-1 win at Watford on Tuesday evening and go into the weekend two points clear at the top. That lead may have evaporated by the time this game begins if Liverpool can win away at Bournemouth earlier in the day. City remain unbeaten in the Premier League and will recall some of their star players such as Sterling and Laporte after leaving them out for the midweek match. Only Wolves and Watford have been able to score against them this season on their league travels and only one of their last 29 away league games has ended in defeat.
Chelsea lost to Wolverhampton Wanderers in midweek after taking an early lead. That leaves them in fourth place and 10 points behind the league leaders. A defeat here would almost certainly end their title hopes. The loss to Wolves was their second in three league games and they only have one win in the last four. They are unbeaten in their last 11 home league games but five of those have ended in draws. City look totally dominant at present with so many players in form. They can be backed to get an away win here.
Key points Chelsea - Manchester City
Manchester City are unbeaten in the Premier League this season.
Manchester City have only lost one of their last 29 away league games.
Chelsea have lost two of their last three league games.
Conclusion Chelsea - Manchester City
Chelsea's title hopes have received two big blows in recent weeks and another poor result looks on its way. They have lost two of their last three league games and been drawing too many others. Manchester City remain unbeaten and their powerful squad can cope with three games in a week. Away form is highly impressive and City can be backed to get the win.
