Chelsea take on Manchester City at Stamford Bridge on matchday 34. The match is to be played on Saturday, April 16th.
Appointment of Guus Hiddink gave the team emotional boost but it seems the hosts of the match have no motivation after elimination from the Champions League. Their recent record (1 win in last 6 matches in all competitions) only confirms it. The Blues are sitting of 10th place in the league with 44 points after 32 matches and 49-42 goal difference. Chelsea have quite small chances to qualify for eurocups as they are now 8 point behind 5th place it would be tough to cover this gap. Perhaps the team doesn’t even want to as such big club rather miss eurocups at all than spent resources on Europa League. As to home record, Chelsea took 22 points in 16 matches with 29-24 goal difference. The Blues are unbeaten in last 8 home games, taking 12 points in these matches.

Manchester City reached historical results this week, beating PSG at home and advancing for the Champions League semifinals. However, the City aren’t doing great in the Premier League. Pellegrini’s men are currently 4th with 57 points after 32 matches. The away record of the team is quite mediocre as they won only 6 out of 15 games on the road with 17-14 goal difference and 23 points.
The teams have long history of head-to-heads and it’s difficult to pick a side with advantage in these games. The opponents met twice this season. The reverse match was won by the City, 3-0, the FA Cup clash ended with 5-1 triumph of Chelsea over Manchester City bench players. However, we should expect Chelsea to be focused and determined for the clash with another top side. On the other hand, Manchester City definitely drained physically and mentally after Tuesday’s success and it might be difficult to offer a battle to the hosts of Stamford Bridge.
Prediction for the match: Chelsea to win with +0.0 Asian handicap.
