Kick-Off at 16:30 UK
Venue: Wembley Stadium (London).

In the battle for the English League Cup glory, Chelsea and Manchester City are going to face each other at Wembley Stadium.

After a very good start of the season, the hosts couldn’t keep up the pace and after a bad recent streak, they slipped down to the 6th position in Premier League.

Chelsea suffered three defeats in the last five occasions in all competitions and Mauricio Sarri’s side needs to stabilize their form if they want to remain in the race for the Champions League spot next season.

Although home side has been pretty disciplined in the back this season, they’ve conceded nine times in the last three matches.

Manchester City are putting excellent performances lately as they managed to win 13 times in the last 14 matches in all competitions.

Raheem Sterling and the lads managed to catch up Liverpool on the top spot and get back into the title race.

The visitors are doing an excellent job in front of the oppositions’ goal as they managed to score 74 times so far in the season.

Manchester City are full of confidence after beating Schalke in the Champions League eight-finals although they were 2-1 down.

Chelsea vs Manchester City: Head-to-head

Manchester City have been more successful in their head to head clashes as the visitors managed to beat their rivals four times in the last five occasions.

We haven’t seen a draw since 2015 and in the last five encounters, one of the sides was able to keep the clean sheet.

These two teams faced each other two weeks ago and Manchester City trashed their rivals in the 6-0 win.

Chelsea vs Manchester City: Prediction

The visitors are in a much better momentum and they are considered as the favourites for lifting the trophy. Although these matches are always tricky to predict, we believe Manchester City are going to meet the expectations and book a victory.

Although their latest encounters haven’t been too efficient, Manchester City have been very productive lately. On the other hand, Chelsea are not defending their net very well and this match should go over 2.5 margin.
