Man City v Chelsea Tips: Best bets as Chelsea travel to the Etihad

Man City v Chelsea Tips: Rodri features

Live on Sky Sports, Manchester City face Chelsea in the Premier League this Saturday at the Etihad. Manchester City dispatched PSG in 4-1 on aggregate in the Champions league semifinal and can wrap up the PL title here with a win.

However, Chelsea are also fighting for the top 4 spots and will be full of confidence after knocking out Real Madrid from the Champions league in the semifinals. This is a clash of two of Europe’s most in form clubs at the moment and a dress rehearsal for the Champions league final. As usual, I have 3 bets for this game:

Team News:

Kovacic and Azpilicueta are doubtful for Chelsea, no other injury/suspension worries. John Stones is suspended for Manchester City, no other injury/suspension worries.

Chelsea possible starting lineup:
Mendy; James, Zouma, Silva, Rudiger; Alonso, Kante, Jorginho, Mount; Pulisic, Ziyech

Manchester City possible starting lineup:
Ederson, Cancelo, Dias, Laporte, Mendy, De Bruyne, Rodrigo, Gundogan, Foden, Mahrez, Aguer

Man City v Chelsea Odds

Both teams to score - No
Odds correct as of 2021-05-07 14:30 Odds subject to change.

This is a clash of 2 of the best defences in Europe at the moment and it is hard to back goals. This bet has landed in 6 of Chelsea’s last 7 games in all competitions while it has also handed in 3 of Manchester City’s last 4 games in all competitions. This bet also landed in their last head to head meeting in the FA Cup semifinal and a 0-0 or 1-0 to either side here wouldn’t surprise me at all. BTTS – NO will be our main bet here for a 1pt stake @ 20/23.

Premier League top 4 betting
Rodri to be carded
Odds correct as of 2021-05-07 14:30 Odds subject to change.

Rodri is Manchester City’s 2nd most booked player with 4 cautions in the PL. With Fernandinho expected to be on the bench, he could easily pick up a card halting a Chelsea counter attack and a price of 7/2 looks big so we will have 0.5pt on that as our 2nd bet of the game.

Mason Mount over 1.5 shots, Rodrigo over 2.5 tackles, Under 3 goals, Over 8 corners
Odds correct as of 2021-05-07 14:35 Odds subject to change.

Mount is averaging 2.2 shots per game in the PL. Rodri had 5 tackles in the last head to head fixture vs Chelsea. Expecting a quiet game on the goals front with a lot of corners so combining all these selections on bet365 gives us a nice 10/1 price for this longshot for a small 0.25pt stake.
