Nando looks tasty again
Chelsea look a far better side under the leadership of Di Matteo. He has steadied the ship since the sacking of AVB. It is a massive week for the club, they take on City on Wednesday night followed by their London rivals Spurs at the weekend.
Chelsea are 3/1 to win the clash, the City home win is 10/11 and the draw is 12/5. If you fancy going against City, Chelsea are 2/1 draw no bet and you can back them to win or draw at 5/6.
Chelsea have won only one of their last seven league away games. They face a City side that may be about to break a record.
Manchester City have won their last 19 Premier League home games. They set the record for the competition's longest ever run of home victories if they win this match.
Frank Lampard has scored six goals in his last ten Premier League games against Man City. He was one of the players on the periphery of things under AVB. The Portuguese manager's reign was marred by rumours of player unrest.
With Lampard (9/1, First Scorer)once again playing first team football, there will surely be more goals from the prolific midfielder.
Carlos Tevez (5/1, last scorer) has scored in all of his last five league caps against Chelsea, netting six in total across those games. He has returned to full training after his self-imposed exile and he will start from the bench.
City have been struggling in attack of late and if he is back to full fitness, he could be an important player for the run-in.
Roberto Mancini's side have only lost one league game after going ahead this season and that was against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. For the Match Winner, will have enhanced the price of either team coming from behind to win this clash, from 4/1!
There have been four penalties given in the last five meetings between City and Chelsea. It is 11/4 for a penalty to be awarded and 10/3 for it to be awarded and scored. Last week, Chelsea scored a penalty against Napoli in their Champions League last sixteen second leg.
Not since October 19th against Genk had Torres found the net for Chelsea. It was his day against Leicester at the weekend and he scored a brace. Torres is 8/1 to open the scoring and 11/4 to find the net anytime.
