Read on below, as we make the case for the two teams winning.
While Chelsea were sluggish and dropped points at home in their Premier League opener, City crushed West Bromwich Albion 3-0 on Monday Night Football. Ivorian midfield powerhouse Yaya Toure showed clear signs he is back to his dynamic best with two goals in that game.
City coach Manuel Pellegrini also has last term’s Premier League Golden Boot winner Seregio Aguero to come back into the starting XI, and the lethal Argentina international has five goals in 11 career appearances against the Stamford Bridge side.
With home advantage at the Etihad, a £5 investment on City gives punters £40 pure profit should they win.
Mourinho’s men are the team to beat, however, and possess a roster packed of equally if not more talented players. Diego Costa and Eden Hazard need no introduction to football fans, and their qualities in attack will be a real problem for their hosts.
On Chelsea’s penultimate visit to the Etihad, Branislav Ivanovic popped up to score a shock winner and the Serbia defender remains a true set-piece threat.
Putting a fiver on the Blues means there is the tidy sum of £50 winnings riding on victory.
