Manchester City vs Chelsea betting preview
Manchester City head into the weekend just three wins away from completing the fabled Treble and equalling the feat neighbours United achieved 24 years ago.
Victory over Chelsea would ensure the first of those trophies, although there’s a chance that it could all be done and dusted on Saturday night with Arsenal needing to avoid defeat at Nottingham Forest to technically keep the race alive. And, in reality, the Gunners have to win.
Whatever the result at the City Ground, it’s hard to see City not winning here.
Yes, Pep Guardiola will be thinking about how to manage his squad ahead of the looming FA Cup and Champions League finals but, as they showed at Everton last Sunday, leaving four or five out matters little when you have a squad of City’s quality.
The Treble chase has seen City deliver 17 wins out of 19, the other two being away draws in two-legged European ties, and the midweek demolition of Real Madrid was simply frightening.

Chelsea certainly won’t be relishing their trip north.
Their form is contrasting – just one win in 11 with seven defeats.
As written before on these pages, they are staggering towards the end of the season when a new manager – it looks like Mauricio Pochettino – will arrive, along with, presumably, more players.
The current bunch certainly aren’t performing for Frank Lampard and, after a win at Bournemouth, ‘normal service’ was resumed at home to Forest last weekend when the visitors earned a 2-2 draw.
The only thing to discuss really is how to get with City. They’ve won the last five against Chelsea, all to nil. Three of those came earlier this season.
That’s around even money but preference is to back the hosts in the HT/FT market, one in which they’ve regularly delivered of late. Read on for more details.

Manchester City vs Chelsea best bets
Man City/Man City HT/FT
City have been going off heavily odds-on in the Premier League pretty much all season but a good way of getting some value out of them of late has been in the half time/full time market.
Of their last 17 wins, 14 have seen them also ahead at the break, yet you’re getting 4/5 about it happening again here.
Chelsea look in no shape to stop the City juggernaut rolling on and the home side will likely need to a win to wrap up the title so should be well up for this.
Back City/City HT/FT at 4/5 at Spreadex
Ilkay Gundogan anytime scorer
The German midfielder has posed a serious goal threat in recent City games, scoring in three of his last six in the league.
That run includes two in the last home game against Leeds and two last week at Everton.
We can’t be sure what team Pep Guardiola has in mind – he’s got two cup finals to think about now – but on current form Gundogan looks pretty much undroppable and 10/3 about him scoring here looks big.
Back Gundogan to score at any time at 10/3 at bet365
Man City over 2.5 goals
Another way of getting with City is in the goals markets.
They’ve scored 59 times in 18 home games this season, an average well above three per game.
In 13 of those 18, they’ve scored at least three times, including against Arsenal, Manchester United and Liverpool.
Chelsea have been a bit of a shambles of late and it’s not hard to see them succumbing to a heavy defeat.
Back Man City over 2.5 goals at 10/11 at William Hill
