MAN CITY scooped the first trophy of the season last weekend and are just five wins from the title ahead of today's visit of ailing champs Chelsea.
The Blues have given up their crown without much of a fight in a disappointing season and are even struggling to bag a top-four place.
City's recent home record against Chelsea is ropey – just one in the last four league meetings – but they can put that right this afternoon.
Pep Guardiola's men are on 13-game league winning streak at the Eithad and won't be easing up until they've clinched glory. Chelsea, meanwhile, have lost three of their last four league matches and I'm backing a home win.
City have scored 2+ in all 13 games of their home winning streak and Chelsea have conceded at least two goals in three of their last four away from home in the league.
Take the champions in-waiting to net over 1.5 goals.
Sergio Aguero simply loves scoring at the Etihad. The prolific Argentine has netted in the last seven home games in a row in all competitions, an impressive total of 14 goals.
He's also bagged five in his last four league games against Chelsea and the final pick is Aguero to hit the opener.
