Chelsea-Manchester City Betting Preview: Mourinho's men to take advantage of the gung-ho guests

Manuel Pellegrini's men have been exposed on the road thanks to their attacking style and our tipster expects the Blues to make the most of any defensive mishaps
Chelsea will be looking to extend their 100 per cent Premier League home record when they welcome Manchester City to Stamford Bridge in Sunday’s high profile clash.

Four wins from four this season means Jose Mourinho has now gone 64 league games since suffering defeat in front of his own fans and his side are 11/8 (2.38) favourites with Paddy Power to earn another victory against their fellow title contenders, while new customers can back the hosts at a special enhanced price of 4/1 (5.00).

After two defeats and a draw, the visitors finally secured their first league away win of the season with a 3-1 victory over West Ham last weekend, and are available at 21/10 (3.10) to come out on top in London once again.

The two sides played out an uninspiring 0-0 draw when they met in last season’s corresponding fixture, and you can get odds of 9/4 (3.25) on them cancelling each other out once again here.

Manuel Pellegrini arrived at the Etihad Stadium in the summer promising to play an attractive brand of attacking football and has so far been as good as his word.

While this approach has seen the former Malaga boss oversee an impressive 4-1 home win in the Manchester derby, it has also resulted in 3-2 defeats at the hands of both Cardiff City and Aston Villa on the road, and could leave them cruelly exposed when they travel to Stamford Bridge, especially if they are without the services of influential captain Vincent Kompany.

With 15 goals to their name in the last five fixtures, the Blues will be confident of pouncing upon any Manchester City mistakes, and even money (2.00) is not to be missed on them scoring at least twice for the 14th time in 16 home fixtures, particularly as the visitors have conceded two or more in five of their last nine league games on the road.

Paddy Power are promising to refund all first goalscorer, last goalscorer, correct score and scorecast single bets should Sergio Aguero score the final goal, a tempting offer considering the Argentine has struck five times in his last three matches.

With this in mind, odds of 9/1 (10.00) are well worth a look for the in-form Eden Hazard scoring last, as he has done so in both of his last two appearances.
