Two sides in the Premier League’s top-three lock horns at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday afternoon as Manchester City host Chelsea. Pep Guardiola’s side are favourites to come out on top, but with Chelsea having picked up more points in recent weeks than their opponents who have fallen short in the league at the Etihad Stadium of late, Saturday’s clash could go the way of the visitors.

Live on Sky Sports 1 / Sky Sports 1 HD / Sky Ultra HD
Manchester City are third in the Premier League with 30 points from 13 games, coming off the back of three wins and a draw from their previous four, but have been hit and miss in all competitions. The Sky Blues have dropped points in two of their last four matches and have looked human on home soil which could be music to the ears of Chelsea.
Pep Guardiola’s side have failed to win their last three home games in the Premier League ahead of Saturday’s meeting and a travel-happy Chelsea side could take advantage as a result. Chelsea have also managed a win and a draw from their last three head-to-heads in the Premier League at the Etihad Stadium so they shouldn’t be ruled out.
Antonio Conte’s men find themselves top of the table with 31 points from a possible 39, boasting seven consecutive wins against Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur among others. Chelsea have shone on the road too, winning their last three away games in the Premier League, and have conceded just one goal home and away in the division since September. The Winner of Saturday’s game will go top and BetVictor are giving odds of 12/5 for Chelsea to win against Manchester City as a result.
