Manchester City vs Chelsea FC 08.05.2021
Both Manchester City and Chelsea booked their place in the final of the UEFA Champions League this week victories over PSG and Real Madrid respectively and this fixture provides a dress rehearsal for the final scheduled for May.
Manchester City equalled their own Premier League record for consecutive away wins when they defeated Crystal Palace 2-0 at Selhurst Park last weekend. Goals from Sergi Aguero and Ferran Torres edged them closer to yet another Premier League title. The Citizens are almost home and dry and a win will confirm their status as Champions for the 2020/2021 season.
On the other hand, Chelsea, are looking to finish in the top four to cement their qualification for Europe’s elite club competition next season. The Pensioners are currently occupying the final Champions League spot with 61 points, three more than West Ham United who are also in the running for a Champions League slot.
A defeat will open the door for West Ham and it will hamper Chelsea’s chance of nailing down that spot. So, something has got to give! A win will confirm City as Champions, but Chelsea hardly losses these days with 18 clean sheets this season. We reckon it will be a closely fought game which is highly likely to see the first half end in a draw.
