Manchester City head into 2022 in formidable form, and the Premier League title is now theirs to lose.
City’s win against Arsenal on New Year’s Day was their 11th on the spin, giving them a 10-point cushion at the top, with second-place Chelsea the visitors to the Etihad this weekend.
We’ve taken a look at all you need to know about Manchester City – from their next league game, to the latest football betting odds.
When is Manchester City’s next Premier League fixture?
Manchester City welcome second-place Chelsea to the Etihad this Saturday, looking to do the Premier League double over the Blues for the fourth time.
This will be the 50th time the two sides have faced each other in the Premier League, with City winning 12 of the last 24 meetings. It’s just the second Premier League meeting between Manchester City and Chelsea as the top two sides in the division.
What are the odds that Manchester City win their next game?
Given their form, it’s unsurprising that Manchester City are odds-on to win on Saturday. The draw is 3/1, but City haven’t drawn a league game since 3rd October, when they drew 2-2 with Liverpool.
All eyes will be on Raheem Sterling, who needs a goal to become the second player to score 50 goals at the Etihad, after Sergio Aguero (106). Sterling’s 6/4 to score at any time.
Kevin De Bruyne loves to score against his former club. He’s been involved in four goals against Chelsea in their last four league meetings. De Bruyne is 19/10 to score at any time.
What is the latest Manchester City injury and transfer news?
Manchester City will be without Riyad Mahrez this weekend with the Algerian away at the Africa Cup of Nations. John Stones is a possible absentee this weekend. Phil Foden and Oleksandr Zinchenko will both miss out.
Who are Manchester City’s key players?
Kevin De Bruyne, Jack Grealish, Ederson, Phil Foden…the list goes on and on. Manchester City have a squad envied across the Premier League. This season, after the departure of Sergio Aguero, the role of central striker has been shared across the team. Foden occupied that role in the Champions League, with Grealish and Riyad Mahrez either side of him.
What are the Manchester City odds to win the Premier League?
Manchester City are far and away the favourites to win the Premier League this season. They’re odds-on to do so.

Who is the Manchester City manager?
Pep Guardiola has called the Etihad home for five years now, which has seen City lift the Premier League title on three occasions. But despite his analytical approach, the Champions League still eludes the Sky Blues.
But they did get off to the perfect start in this year’s competition with a 6-3 win over RB Leipzig and face French champions Paris-Saint Germain next.
Where do Manchester City play?
The Etihad stadium is the fifth largest in the Premier League after being converted in 2003 following the 2002 Commonwealth Games. It has a capacity of up to 48,000 fans.
