Premier League betting preview: Chelsea v Man City
Chelsea host Manchester City in the Premier League tonight in one of the most enticing fixtures of the season so far.
Successive victories have left the home side sitting fifth in the league, 10 points off table-topping City.
Frank Lampard could be recalled to the Chelsea side for his 350th Premier League start for the Blues, while defender Jose Bosingwa is in contention after recovering from injury. David Luiz will sit the game out as a result of a one-match domestic ban.
Man City’s Micah Richards is expected to miss the match through injury, while fellow full back Aleksandar Kolarov is also out. Pablo Zabaleta could come into the side having returned to fitness.
Bet365 make Chelsea 7/5 favourites for the match, with City offered at 15/8. The draw is priced at 12/5. Visiting forward Edin Dzeko is 5/1 favourite to score the first goal, followed by teammate Sergio Aguero at 11/2.
