Chelsea – Manchester City: will the game be productive?
In one of the matches of the 30th round of the nuclear submarines on June 25 Chelsea and Manchester City will play – we prepared a forecast.
In “Chelsea” before the upcoming match good standings. The Blues are in fourth place, which gives a ticket to the Champions League. They are five points ahead of the closest pursuers – Manchester United and Wolves. I must say that after the misfire of Leicester in the duel of the current round with Aston Villa, the distance from the third position is only four points. So, if successful, it can be reduced to a minimum.
Before the quarantine break, Chelsea got in good shape. The London club won two previous home league matches against Everton (4: 0) and Tottenham Hotspur (2: 1), and defeated Liverpool (2: 0) in the FA Cup. The Blues played well after a pause, taking three important points away from Aston Villa (2: 1).
Defender Fikayo Tomori will not play in the match. Questioned Callum Hudson-Odoi.
“Citizens” have almost resigned as champion. Now Mankunians take the second place in the championship. They are behind indecent 20 points from Liverpool, and the third Leicester are eight points ahead.
After quarantine, Josep Guardiola ‘s team showed good readiness. In the first match after the pause, Arsenal (3-0) was defeated, and Burnley (5-0) was destroyed in the last round.
They definitely won’t play in the match because of injuries to Sergio Aguero and Eric Garcia. Questioned by Claudio Bravo and John Stones.
In the first round , Manchester City defeated Chelsea in their own walls with a score of 2: 1.
In five of the last six full-time fights, 2-3 goals were scored in the match.
In 8 of the last 9 in-person matches on the Chelsea field, Manchester City scored less than two goals.
In five of the last six in-person matches, the forecast was “total less than 3.5”.
Chelsea have won three of their last four league games at home.
Manchester City have won five of their eight previous matches away in the Premier League.
In the last four matches on the field , Chelsea have played the forecast “total less than 2.5”.
In five of the last seven matches, Manchester City did not miss.
Fights between English top clubs always have a fairly high intensity. The favorite, of course, is Manchester City, whose class of players is slightly higher, and the team looked better after Chelsea after the break .
In our opinion, the game will be productive, as both rivals have high-class performers and problems in defense. However, full-time fights on the Chelsea field do not often exceed the bar in four goals.
