Meanwhile, the Blues, who don’t have European competition this season, got over Crystal Palace thanks to their midfield, getting two late goals to seal a 1-3.

Why Bet on Manchester City?

The Sky-Blues have been on a roll since the beginning of the year. That has been a tradition for the team in the last campaigns, who seems to have taken note of the experts saying that the winter months are the most important in the title race. 

Counting all competitions, there have been 11 victories in a row for this club, against all kinds of rivals like Urawa Reds and Tottenham as visitors (finally).  The scary team is that they have recovered Haaland and De Bruyne from the injury list, and the team is in full gear.

The Norwegian is not yet at his best, but the Belgian has been a machine since his return, averaging more goals contributions than matches and always appearing at crucial moments.

Why Bet on Chelsea?

Chelsea bloomed again this past weekend against Crystal Palace, although they started losing, and all pointed out toward a draw before Connor Gallagher and Enzo Fernandez appeared. The team had a gloomy period after their humiliating defeat to Liverpool, with no shots on target, and their slip against Wolves at home.  However, their victory at the FA Cup against Aston Villa seems to have injected new stamina into the squad.

Either way, they are still in 10th place, pretty far away from the battle to enter the Champions League spots, and with little chance of reaching the European competition places soon. ¬†Another season without international tournaments would be pretty damaging to this club after spending so much, but it seems that it’ll be the case.

Now they have a challenging future ahead, as they must visit the Etihad before playing the EFL Cup final with Liverpool, two scenarios that bring bad memories to this club.

Manchester City vs. Chelsea Final Betting Analysis:

Since the Champions League final of 2021, these teams have faced plenty of times in all competitions, and Manchester City always won, with the sole exception being the first duel between the two this Premier League season. Then, a penalty from Cole Palmer at injury time pulled the chestnuts out of the fire for the Blues and rescued a draw.

Chelsea will be hoping to break that streak, but against this team, at their peak and their home, it seems like a mountain too high to climb, at least right now.¬† We believe it’ll be battled, but Manchester City will end up winning by 2-1.

Go for a victory for the locals at 1.361. If you bet $100 at such odds, you could get $36.10 for a total payout of $136.10.
