Manchester City will look to take another huge step toward the title as they could extend the gap to 6 points ahead of rivals Chelsea at the Etihad on Monday night and we have free football betting tips.
In the midweek fixtures City ran out comfortable winners in what was billed a difficult fixture in their calendar away at Spurs, whereas Chelsea slipped up in what should have been a routine home win against struggling West Ham, opening up a three point gap in the process.
City’s dominant win was somewhat marred by the injury to hitman Sergio Aguero just before half-time, leaving the Argentine out of both fixtures against Chelsea and the first leg against Barcelona. Stefan Jovetic impressed off the bench which is a boost for Pellegrini, as is the likely return of Alvaro Negredo to the starting line-up. The ‘Beast’ is only second to Ruud Van Nistlerooy to score the most goals in the first 30 games of a debut season, and some people’s signing of the season is 9/2 to score first on Monday night.
Chelsea’s new signing Mohammed Salah is expected to start from the bench as Mourinho has settled on his forward three as Willian, Hazard and Oscar. Matic is likely to hold on to his position in the middle of the part with Ramires alongside him. The way in which Mourinho set up away against Manchester United suggests the game may be low scoring, a feature unseen at the Etihad this season. Chelsea’s strikers have struggled to find the net this season, and only managed 1 goal against Stoke and West Ham despite total dominance. Although City have defensive frailties, I fancy this to be a surprising clean sheet for the home side, with good value at 21/10 best priced with Bet365.
This game is a must not lose for Mourinho. The longer they keep City at bay the more likely they are to snatch a point, however if City break them down early and Chelsea need to come out in order to get anything out of the game, there may be a few goals on show.
