Chelsea Preview – Can the Blues cause an upset in the capital?

Thomas Tuchel has done a fine job at Stamford Bridge since taking over in January. Chelsea have suffered just one Premier League defeat under his guidance, and the Londoners booked their place in the last four of the UEFA Champions League in midweek.

On their way to the last four of the FA Cup, Chelsea saw off Morecambe and Luton Town in the early rounds while Frank Lampard was at the helm. Under Tuchel, after a 1-0 victory over Barnsley at Oakwell, the Blues edged past Sheffield United in the quarter-finals.

Our betting prediction:
Man City to win to nil
2/1

(odds taken 1204 GMT, Friday 16 April)

 
Despite their good form, the London side head into this FA Cup semi-final as underdogs, with the bookies pricing the Chelsea win at 15/4. Nevertheless, Tuchel will back his Blues to cause an upset at Wembley Stadium and reach the final of this season’s FA Cup.

Manchester City Preview – City too strong in the national stadium?

These are busy times for Manchester City, who face Tottenham Hotspur in the EFL Cup final at the end of the month. The Citizens are well on their way to reclaiming the Premier League title, but can they add another FA Cup to their growing trophy cabinet come the end of the season?

Man City are in devastating form, though they were beaten at home by ten-man Leeds United in the Premier League last weekend. Nevertheless, City have suffered just two league defeats since November and remain 11 points clear at the top of the Premier League table.

The Citizens have made light work of their opponents in the FA Cup this season, easing past Birmingham City, Cheltenham Town, Swansea City and Everton. Will Chelsea be added to that list at the weekend?

 

Chelsea vs Manchester City Betting Advice

At the start of the year, Man City picked up a comfortable 3-1 win over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in Premier League action. City were scintillating on the day, with first-half goals from Ilkay Gundogan, Phil Foden and Kevin De Bruyne doing the damage. Man City have won three of the last four league meetings.

 

Key Facts – Chelsea vs Manchester City Betting Tip

  • Chelsea have lost two of their last four league and cup games
  • Man City suffered a shock league defeat to Leeds last weekend
  • This will be the first FA Cup meeting between the two since 2016, which Chelsea won 5-1

 

Apart from a couple of strange results of late, Man City look unstoppable right now. As we touched on, Pep has enjoyed success in the cup competitions since arriving in England, but the Spaniard has won just one FA Cup.

We fancy Man City to dominate this semi from start to finish, so take a punt on City to win both halves at 4/1.

Ilkay Gundogan has been a surprise goalscoring hero for Man City this season. The German international opened the scoring at Stamford Bridge back in January, and you can get 5/1 for Gundogan to score first here.
