Chelsea v Manchester City Betting Preview: Blues to draw at Stamford Bridge

Chelsea’s campaign looks to ending in something of a damp squib, as the Blues are stranded in midtable in the Premier League and have very little to play for this season. Dutch boss Guus Hiddink will want to finish his reign on a high, but last time out the Blues suffered a 1-0 defeat at Swansea.

Chelsea have incredible drew six of their last seven home games, which has kept Hiddink’s side in midtable. The Blues have only suffered one league defeat in Hiddink’s second spell in charge and are odds of 7/4 at Bet365 to win this clash.

Manchester City arrives in London on a high after beating PSG 1-0 in the Champions League to progress into the semi-finals of the competition. However in the Premier League they are still in a battle to maintain a spot in the top four.

Manuel Pellegrini’s men currently find themselves four points clear of fifth-place Manchester United and five points clear of sixth-place West Ham. The Citizens can be backed at odds of 7/4 with Ladbrokes to claim a win in this one.

Pellegrini will once again look to Belgian international playmaker Kevin De Bruyne to provide the attacking inspiration in this clash.

The former-Chelsea star scored the Winner against PSG and he is odds of 8/1 with Ladbrokes to open the scoring in this clash, which looks like good value considering his current stellar form in front of goal.

Top Tip

Neither of these two teams have been in great form of late. City will be lifted by the Champions League win over PSG, but Chelsea are hard to beat at home. I can see these two cancelling each other out. The draw can be backed at odds of 38/18 at 888 Sport.
