Chelsea vs Manchester City – Premier League: Clash between two of the best teams of this Premier League…
Who have been having a practically perfect campaign so far, both dedicated to winning the Premier League title while also leaving a good impression on the Champions League.
Both Manchester City and Chelsea got some important wins this week.
The Citizens won against Paulo Fonseca’s Shakhtar Donetsk and Chelsea came back from behind to win against Atlético de Madrid.
The clash between the two sides will, however, besides being a match between two great teams, be also a clash of different ideas and approaches to a football match.
Chelsea even more playing at home, shouldn’t have any problems organizing themselves on a short block,
lowering their lines in order to stop City’s good ball movement and only overextending to pressure certain areas so they can, when they recover the ball, attack with some depth.
Manchester City, with their moving carousel, is a tough opponent to stop, usually getting a lot more ball possession and creating the illusion of being able to shut down their opponents.
Chelsea vs Manchester City – Betting Tip and Prediction:
However, the Blues will have a word to say on this encounter. They were shut out only once so far, and it was exactly after their 1st Champions’ League match.
Now they are on the same situation, but they have a lot of ability to create goal chances.
As for Manchester City, they’ve only conceded 1 goal on their last 6 matches played, conjugating their offensive and defensive abilities with a lot of quality.
The chance of having a lot of goals is high. But the Chelsea’s defence might end up having an impact on this match and force their opponent to reduce their offensive impact on the final result.
At the same time, this match will depend a lot on its context. An early goal might open up the match while if they are able to hold on to the 0-0 for a long time,
the pace should slow down, which would surely lead to less goals being scored.
