With more matches from this cup lined up for tomorrow, you can take a look at sure wins for tomorrow from our experts
A controversial penalty awarded deep into injury time and dispatched into the net by City’s mercurial forward Erling Haaland earned them a 2-1 win over Fulham which momentarily took them to the summit of the Premier League before Arsenal reclaimed the top slot the next day with their win in the London derby at Stamford Bridge.
Pep Guardiola’s side appear to have upped the ante since losing to Liverpool in the Premier League in mid-October. That win over Fulham was their fourth in the last 5 matches, with only a draw to Dortmund in the dead rubber final UCL group game spoiling a perfect record.
Pep has had success in this cup over the years. This is primarily because he has always treated these cups seriously, fielding strong teams every time. We pretty much expect the same here which spells doom for the visitors.
Chelsea have been in shambles in recent weeks. They lost to Arsenal and Brighton in back-to-back league matches which has seen them drop down to 7th on the log. Pressure is piling up already on the gaffer Graham Potter who took up the reins from former German tactician Thomas Tuchel who was shown the door following a relatively slow start to the new season.
The Blues boss had gone 9 matches without a loss following his appointment, ahead of the trip to his former employers Brighton. That match turned out to be his waterloo as Brighton ran them ragged in a comprehensive 4-1 mauling.
Potter is dealing with a host of injuries to key players including defenders Chilwell, James, and the recently acquired Fofana. He will have to make do with a makeshift defence which could well be a bloodbath against the well-oiled Man City attack.

MAN CITY VS CHELSEA PREDICTIONS
Given the extent of Chelsea’s injury crisis, especially on the defensive end, they will do well to make this a damage-control exercise. They have looked woefully average in the face of strong opposition in recent weeks. At the weekend, Arsenal basically turned the derby into a light training session before scoring a deserved winner late in the 2nd half of that match. City do not need any invitation to attack. They will go for the jugular right from the get-go and we are backing them to be ahead in this game at halftime and fulltime @ 2.25 with Bet365 as the first of our betting tips today.
With City set to dominate possession, we feel they will put Chelsea on their backfoot from start to finish. As a result of this style of play, they tend to pile up quite a few corners. They have won each of their last 10 games a the Etihad and in each of these games, they had at least 6 corners. We feel there is value in backing a repeat of the same here @ 1.80 with Betwinner Bonus as our final call for this game.
