Betting prediction for Chelsea vs Manchester City

Undoubtedly this is the battle we all who love English football wait with interest.The two richest teams will fight against each other in a direct match for the title in England.

Chelsea demonstrates inconsistency this season and it is clear the new manager can’t find the best positions for his players. There are already open bets for when he will be sacked and who will be the new Chelsea manager.

In their last match from the Champions League Chelsea made a convincing victory over Valencia with three to zero and magnificent play by Didier Drogba. Could this be a sign that the team is rising? Well, I am not so sure.

City also got a win in the strongest tournament in Europe, but they disappointed as they finished on the third position in their group and couldn’t qualify for the knock-out stage.

However, Manchester City holds the top spot in the Premier League standings, while Chelsea occupies the fifth position. The final result of this match will answer whether the “Citizens” will add three more points on the way to the title or Chelsea will get closer to them.

In this match, the manager of Chelsea will have to convince everyone that his team is finally out of the crisis and can win against the strongest clubs in the Premier League. In a case of a failure the owner of Londoners could lose his patience and sack André Villas-Boas.

The host factor will also have impact over the Chelsea’s chances to win the match. Stamford Bridge is one of the most inhospitable stadiums in the league since the team was bought by the Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich.

This is why I predict victory for Chelsea, which will bring them closer to the leaders and will place them on the third place in the standing.

Didier Drogba is again expected to be the key figure for Chelsea and to score at least once.
