Value soccer betting tips for Manchester City vs Chelsea
Manchester City host Chelsea in a 13th round Premier League match. The match will be played on Saturday, November 23 from 17:30 UK at Etihad Stadium.
Manchester City are only in 4th place in the standings with 25 points after 12 rounds. In the last round, they played against their direct rival for the title this season – Liverpool, and defeated Anfield 3-1. The Reds took the lead 6 minutes in, as Fabinho broke through, and 13 minutes into the game, Mohamed Salah made the score 2 – 0. Sadio Mane made the score 3 – 0 at 51 minutes, as the only thing City could do in this match was to score an honorable pass from Bernardo Silva in the 78th minute.
Previously, Pep Guardiola’s team failed to win as away guest Atalanta in their Champions League match, finishing 1-1, but there the situation for The Citizens is not a worry as they are a convincing leader. Before their loss to Liverpool, Man. City were in a series of 3 consecutive Premier League victories.
Chelsea placed 3rd in the standings with 26 points. The team led by Frank Lampard is in a series of six consecutive Premier League victories as they won the London derby against Crystal Palace 2-0 at home in the last round. Previously, The Blues had a Champions League game against Ajax again, trailing 1-3 at halftime, but this match ended 4:4 as Chelsea scored 3 goals within 11 minutes to reach the point. . The last loss of the team was at the end of September when they host Liverpool 1:2.
There is no exceptionally interesting match in which no one expected Chelsea to be ahead of Man. City in the standings. For me, however, the match is crucial for the hosts who cannot afford to lose more points if they want to fight for the title. They are already 9 points behind Liverpool and with a new loss of points the difference to the first place could be double-digit. For their part, Chelsea are in exceptional form and I expect them to make at least one goal away, so I am betting on the BTTS option. Enjoy our value soccer betting tips for today!
