Chelsea made a successful comeback, ending their streak of three straight defeats with a 2:0 win over Bournemouth. But then the Blues slipped to a 1:1 draw with Nottingham. They are currently sitting in tenth place. The gap from the top 4 is 10 points, but Graham Potter's charges have a game in hand. However, Chelsea had a lot of critical losses in the starting lineup: N'Golo Kante, Ben Chilwell, Wesley Fofana, Reece James, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, and Armando Broja.
Man City let Arsenal off the hook in the championship race. After a confident win over Leeds (3:1), the Citizens suddenly stumbled at home against one of the worst teams in the championship, Everton (1:1). The gap from Arsenal increased to 8 points. But winning over Chelsea will reduce the gap to 5 points. However, in the next round, the Citizens will have a trip to their neighbors Man United. Therefore, the City is no longer not allowed to make a mistake.
Expert Betting Tips
Chelsea still needs to be in better shape, although they have had a month to improve. However, many injured players are not giving Graham Potter the needed results. Fighting on equals with such clubs requires more time than is customary to expect. Therefore, we do not expect an open and productive game. Moreover, the Blues have problems with creation and are likely to focus on defense. But Erling Haaland will send Chelsea a few goals and outclass them.
