The central match of the EPL’s seventh round will be held on 30th September at Stamford Bridge stadium in London, where Chelsea will host Manchester City. Despite the field factor, bookmakers are on the Mancunians’ side in this couple. Guardiola’s team shows a very strong football at the start of the season, besides, the Eagles look great in away matches. It is also important to note, after the flight to Spain, Chelsea do not have that much time to recover and Man City spent their domestic in the Champions League, i.e. had no flights.
Chelsea are after a very energy-consuming match against Atletico, the Madrid Mattressers themselves exhaust the opponents with pressing plus the match ending turned out to be extraordinary for the Londoners. Too many physical and emotional energy were used in Chelsea in the mid-week match.
In their turn, Manchester City also played in the Champions League, but the team defeated Shakhtar much more trivially with a score of 2:0, although one must say, that Guardiola’s men managed to win five times within the last five games, only one goal was conceded in the League Cup match against WBA. All other matches were won flawlessly.
Man City played in the UCL a day earlier, other than the Londoners. The Mancunians had a pretty average match against the Ukrainian team, while Chelsea left all their strength in Madrid. In this situation, a bet on the future hosts looks like an interesting option. Man City will come to the capital to win, as they cannot lose points, because Man United are on tail.
Prediction for the match: Manchester City not to lose
