Manchester City recovered from their 1:1 home loss to Everton. Chelsea was the next opponent for Pep Guardiola's side. Mahrez netted the winner in the second half in a 1:0 win. This result made Manchester City reduce the gap from the top side of Arsenal to five points. The Citizens have three wins and one draw after the break.
The London club has an evident game slump. Graham Potter's charges have claimed only one victory with four defeats and one draw in the last six matches in all competitions. Two losses were just against the Citizens. Firstly, the Aristocrats lost away to Man City in the EFL Cup with a score of 0:2. Then, Chelsea yielded to Guardiola's charges in their native walls already in the English league - 0:1. The Londoners are only tenth in the EPL standings.
Expert Betting Tips
There is an exciting trend in the head-to-head encounters between Manchester City and Chelsea: All the goals were scored after the break in the last four games. This streak can continue in the cup clash. In the first half, the teams will act more cautiously in defense, and the game will open up in the second half. Chelsea has a lot of problems in defense at the moment, with attacking players Sterling and Pulisic injured in the last game against City. We expect another win for the Citizens over the Aristocrats.
