Manchester City v Chelsea –  Premier League – Sunday 21st May

Manchester City will win the Premier League in front of their home fans as they entertain an injury hit Chelsea side, who have had a season to forget. With Arsenal failing to beat Brighton, Manchester City can now enjoy a comfortable game against Chelsea, and by collecting all three points, will retain their Premier League crown.

The Citizens have been relentless and often called a ‘jugganaught’ in the Punters.Pub match previews. They have not drawn or lost at home in the Premier League since losing to Brentford way back before the break for the World Cup last year.

The team are playing almost a perfect game week in week out and the mistakes are few and far between and the attacking play is unstoppable. They dominate games from the start to the end and with in form players to put the ball in the net, Manchester City are closing in on a Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League treble.

Erling Haaland is edging closer to 40 goals in the Premier League and with Grelish, De Bruyne, Mahrez and in recent weeks Gundogen getting on the score sheet, Manchester City are showing why they are the best football team.

Manchester City have been relentless in their charge to the Premier League title, they have not looked troubled in any recent game and the 4-1 win over rivals Arsenal all but put an end to their chances of winning the title.

Last weekend, Manchester City strolled to a 3-0 win over Everton, which could have been a tricky game, given Everton’s surprising 5-1 win at Brighton. But, two goals in the space of a few minutes at the end of the first half enabled Manchester City to enjoy a stress free afternoon.

Manchester City have scored 12 goals in their last 4 Premier League home games and with Chelsea in a poor run of form and having one of their worst Premier League seasons in history ,they will not put up much of a fight in this one.

Frank Lampard has one win since his return to Chelsea, and with a team lacking confidence, this could end up being a cricket score if Manchester City choose to be clinical.

Manchester City v Chelsea – Premier League – Sunday 21st May

This could be a case of how many goals Manchester City want to score. Two teams coming into this one in the totally opposite frame of mind, with Manchester City to be crowned Premier League champions and Chelsea having a hugely poor season. 

For punters.pub, we expect Manchester City to romp this and after their midweek Champions League exertions, this game will be one where they can win convincingly. At 5/4 with Bet365, our top pick of the day is on the asian handicap, Manchester City (-2) to beat Chelsea. This means that for the bet to win Manchester CIty have to win by 3 or more goals.

Given they are averaging 3 goals a home game in their last four games, the trends can continue here and with Chelsea leaking goals and with no confidence at all, it’s a case of Manchester City putting on a show for the fans.
