Match Preview

Man City’s quest for a third straight Premier League title could be achieved this weekend, as a victory would seal the English title. It will be the first of three huge matches for the club, as they look to win a historic treble. But, even if they fall to defeat this weekend, they have two further opportunities to wrap up the title over the next seven days.

City has an excellent record in this fixture, as they have won each of their last three against Chelsea. Interestingly, all wins have come by a 1-0 scoreline. This will be the fourth clash between the sides this term, with City having landed victories in each of the previous three.

A disastrous season for Chelsea has just seven days left to run, but it’s unlikely that they will pick up the necessary points to secure a top-half finish. Since the Blues landed victory over City in the 2021 Champions League final, they have lost each of their last five against Guardiola’s side without scoring a goal.

The Blues come into this match after going two without a defeat. But, their record against sides sitting above them in the standings is extremely poor. Since the start of last season, they have failed to win all 14 matches that they have played against sides located higher than they in the Premier League table.

Man City vs Chelsea Prediction

Man City will be crowned Premier League champions this weekend, and it looks hard to overlook them winning the treble. We expect City to secure the title in emphatic fashion this weekend, and we could see Erling Haaland netting his 53rd goal of the campaign in a 3-0 win.
