Manchester City returned to the summit of the Premier League in midweek following a 2-0 win over Everton but Pep Guardiola’s side can ill afford to take things easily as they prepare to face Chelsea at the Etihad this Sunday.
Maurizio Sarri’s side bounced back from their shock 4-0 defeat to Bournemouth with a comprehensive 5-0 victory over Huddersfield last weekend with new signing Gonzalo Higuain scoring his first 2 goals for the club since joining on-loan from Juventus in January.
Chelsea inflicted the first league defeat this season on Manchester City when the sides met at Stamford Bridge in December but the Blues are without a win at the Etihad since 2016.
Since their 3-2 home defeat to Crystal Palace, City have won their last 6 consecutive home matches scoring no fewer than 29 goals in the process and conceding just twice so it’s no surprise to see them red-hot 1/2 favourites with bet365 to secure all 3-points on Sunday.
In terms of value, Sergio Aguero to score first is 11/4 with bet365.
The Argentine striker notched a hat-trick in City’s most recent home game against Arsenal.
All odds correct as of 16:30pm
