Manchester City vs ChelseaEnglish Premier League, KO: 16:00 May 21, 2023, Etihad Stadium
MANCHESTER CITY will surely wrap up the title this weekend…and Pep Guardiola's men utterly relentless at the moment as they go for the treble.
City may already be champions unless Arsenal win with a hugely superior goal difference too and they could hardly be facing a more welcoming team at the moment than a crestfallen Chelsea who will be desperate to end a complete and utter nightmare of a campaign.
It's hard to believe that for years Chelsea were superior to City and the Stamford Bridge side must be truly thankful the season ends when it does or else they would be getting dragged into a real relegation battle.
One win in their last 11 games in all competitions – away to Bournemouth – tells you everything and Frank Lampard will almost sign off by surely watching one of his old teams taste glory.
As everyone knows, the City stats recently are truly frightening and their midweek humbling of Real Madrid showed you the gap between them and the rest of Europe and explains why are 4/11 overwhelming good things to win the Champions League for the first time against Inter Milan, who are certainly no mugs.
The last time they lost was in February and since then, in all competitions, they have won 19 out of 23 games.
How the bookies view it
Unsurprisingly, City are very short-priced favourites indeed at 1/5 although bet365 sticks their necks out at 1/4.
Recent head to heads
The sides have met three times already this season in the three domestic competitions and City have won all three and scored seven without conceding a goal.
Players to watch
With Erling Haaland his usual 1/2 or thereabouts to score at home for City in just about any given match, let's look at Bernardo Silva who scored a great midweek double against Real Madrid. He is 4/1 just to get the one on Sunday with BetVictor.
Raheem Sterling must have cause to regret his move between the two clubs he will be reminded of that by the home fans. But he scored a double last week and is 13/2 to score anytime with UniBet.
Anything else catch the eye?
City could rotate with a confirmed five games left this season and the title in the bag, but appears to make zero difference and with Chelsea still ravaged by injury and a loss of confidence, it should be all about another City masterclass.
They don't seem to take their foot off the pedal for anyone and with Chelsea leaking goals to all and sundry, it's a case of how many.
City seem a generous 15/8 to overcome a two-goal handicap with Paddy Power.
And for an outsider with the same firm, it could be worth a small investment at 5/1 on City to win by four or more goals.
