Despite sitting second in the Premier League table, Manchester City are in the unusual position of having little to play for. It’s a matter of time before Liverpool are crowned champions and that will mean Pep Guardiola’s side are likely to be runners-up.

However, with a UEFA ban looking as though it will exclude the Citizens from European football next season, it’s not as though last year’s champions of England even need to land a top four spot and so their levels of motivation could now be open to question.

We know that whatever team Pep decides to field is going to be attacking and we’re likely to see Raheem Sterling, Kevin de Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez among the likely starters at Stamford Bridge, with City having opened up with a 3-0 victory over Arsenal in which all of these players starred.

At the time of writing, the north-west outfit plundered 71 goals in 29 matches and it’s hard to see them being kept off the scoresheet by a Chelsea team who will also have attacking football on their mind. The betting has City as strong favourites although there’s that element of doubt on the motivation front.

Frank Lampard’s side will want to make sure of a top four spot considering that City might yet overturn their UEFA ban and the Blues enjoyed a thumping 4-0 win over Everton before the lockdown which came hard on the heels of knocking Liverpool out of the FA Cup.

While Timo Werner waits in the wings to become a Chelsea player, Tammy Abraham will be out to demonstrate that he still has a future at the London club, with Ross Barkley, Mason Mount and Willian all looking bright before the break.

When the two teams met at the Etihad Stadium in November, there were three first-half goals and Manchester City ran out 2-1 winners in the end, with three or more goals looking to be on the cards for this particular encounter.

Our prediction is that we could see a really open end-to-end encounter and braver punters might even look at the bigger odds about Over 3.5 Goals being scored.
