THIS is a dress rehearsal for the Champions League Final but it's all about the Premier League this weekend as Manchester City look to wrap up the title with a win over Chelsea.

Both teams head into the weekend on a high after hugely impressive wins in their Euro semi-finals as City swept aside PSG and the Blues battered Real Madrid.

Fans are now looking forward to the final later this month but both teams have domestic business to take care of first, with City just one win away from sealing the title.

The points arguably matter more to Chelsea as they bid to guarantee a place in the next term's Champions League by holding off Liverpool and West Ham to finish fourth.

And they will fancy their chances after beating City in the FA Cup semis to end Pep Guardiola's hopes of an unprecedented Quadruple.

How the bookies view it

City are odds-on favourites to wrap up the title with a win and are a best 19/20 at SportNation. Chelsea are as big as 7/2 with SBK, which will attract plenty of punters, while the stalemate is 45/17 with the same firm.

Recent head to head

There has been nothing between these sides of late, with the last seven meetings producing three Chelsea wins, three City victories and one draw. Guardiola's side won 3-1 at Stamford Bridge earlier this season but the Blues got their revenge with that 1-0 victory in the FA Cup semis (below).

Players to watch

I'd expect both managers to make changes after the emotional and physical effort of those midweek Euro ties. Gabriel Jesus or Sergio Aguero could start up front for City and the Brazilian offers better value, with Jesus 47/20 at Unibet for a goal and Aguero 37/20.

Christian Pulisic made a big impact off the bench for Chelsea against Real Madrid and that could earn the American a start here. He's 9/2 at Unibet for a goal which looks decent value if Tuchel (below) starts him.

Anything else catch the eye?

I cashed in by betting against BTTS in the Cup semi and the same bet appeals here at 9/10 with BetVictor. Under 2.5 goals has been a profitable bet with Chelsea since Tuchel took charge, although it's a best 8/11 at BoyleSports here and probably only worth it for accas.

The half-time draw also came up for me at Wembley and that bet pays 117/100 at TonyBet here, which looks decent.

William Hill are offering 11/10 on each team winning over three corners and that stands a chance, with the bet failing to land by a single corner in the last two meetings.
