Manchester City: This is a tricky one, but there is no reason why they can’t win this one at home. The loss to Liverpool last time out puts the pressure on, and if they drop points they could down double digit points It’s also about time for this attack to turn it around after scoring one goal in each of their last two games. Don’t be surprised if they explode in attack and win quite comfortably.
Chelsea: Pulisic and Tammy Abraham have been on fire for the Blues, with Pulisic taking over as of late with five goals in his last three games. He starts up top with Abraham and Willian in this one, recovering from his thigh injury.
Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling score in the first half, the defense contains the Blues’ attack, and City wins.
Pick: Manchester City 2, Chelsea 0
