Match Venue: Etihad Stadium

 

Manchester City

Injured Samir Nasri, who displayed excellent impression against Spurs, provides the main worry for Manchester City coach Manuel Pellegrini, but in Sergio Aguero, Yaya Toure, Alvaro Negredo, and Edin Dzeko he has more than adequate to topple any peril.

 

For 19 straight matches, The Citizens have exuded the wheelhouse they are most capable of vaunting. Only two matches of that streak went to a deadlock while the rest were overwhelmingly successful. Not only are the squad very powerful on Premier League turfs, but they are also major threats in other competitions such as the FA Cup, League Cup, and the Champions League. They are now on top of the league table, overtaking Arsenal by just one point (though Manchester City scored 23 more goals than their closest rivals).

 

Chelsea

Chelsea are continuing their humble bid for the title with strong determination at winning their next battles. Jose Mourinho’s men ended up frustrated after West Ham held them in a goalless draw to see them fall three points behind current Premier League leaders Manchester City.  The coach toned down his side’s title chances this season and saw their seven-game perfect run axed by the relegation candidates.

 

While their latest showing was unexpectedly unsatisfying, Chelsea are still secure with an unbeaten streak (since their Arsenal face-off). They will remain among the league’s top contenders and their shot for the championship cannot still be ruled out.

 

Sports betting tip: These powerhouses are off to a stimulating battle, but there will be winners by the end of the brawl. Manchester City will have Chelsea fall as their next prey, following their mauling of fellow giants Liverpool and Arsenal.
