Man City v Chelsea Betting Preview

Sergio-AgueroTwo title rivals clash for the first time this season as Manchester City welcome Chelsea to the Etihad on Sunday.

Chelsea have had a storming start to the season, winning all four games and scoring 15 goals along the way.

Their two headline summer signings, Diego Costa and Cesc Fàbregas, have scored seven and supplied six respectively, form reflected in their short 13/10 and 4/1 odds to score at any time on Sunday.

Chelsea did the double over Manchester City last season and were the only visitors to beat them at home in the Premier League.

If they do it again to preserve their 100% start to the season they’ll be eight points clear of City already – few sides will be as short as 2/1 to win at the Etihad.

However, Chelsea showed their first signs of weakness midweek as they surrendered a 1-0 lead at home to Schalke in their Champions League opener.

City are seeking their first league win in three matches; failure to beat Chelsea would represent their worst run for 19 months, when they only earned two points out of a possible nine.

The onus is on Manuel Pellegrini’s side to close the five-point gap between the sides at this early stage of the season, and he’ll be looking towards his own star striker to help make up the difference

Sergio Aguero has scored 10 goals in his last 12 Premier League appearances at the Etihad Stadium, and he leads the betting at 5/1 to score first on Sunday.

Frank Lampard is set to play a part for Manchester City against Chelsea, the club for whom he made 648 appearances. A cheeky punt on Frank to spoil Chelsea’s perfect start, by scoring anytime, is available at 5/1.
