Match : Manchester City vs Chelsea
Competition : England – Premier League
Time / Date : 18:00h / 4 March 2018
Venue : Etihad Stadium
Manchester City have already claimed the first title under Pep Guardiola last weekend when they eased past Arsenal to lift the League Cup silverware at Wembley (3-0 win). The Citizens went on to repeat such an impressive showing and see off the same opposition just four days later when the two teams met in the Premier League clash at Emirates Stadium.
Guardiola’s men will thus come into another derby with sky-high confidence and practically two titles in the bag given that they have a massive 16-point cushion at the top of the Premier League standing at this stage.
Chelsea are now two points adrift of the top four following last weekend’s defeat away to United. Antonio Conte’s side have now lost three of their last four in the league, suggesting the wheels are coming off at the wrong time for the Blues.

Manchester City and Chelsea have each won three, drawn one, and lost three of their last seven encounters with one another.
Despite the contrast in recent form between these two sides the odds for a home win are still relatively favourable. I backing a Manchester City win here, and considering they have conceded in seven of their last nine at home and Chelsea have scored in all but two of their away games this season, I also going for a Manchester City Win and Both Teams to Score alongside a 3-1 correct score predictions.
-Home win @1.57
-Home win & BTTS @3.10
-3:1 Correct Score @13.00
