STAR PREVIEW Chelsea v Man City

first_img[dropcap]I[/dropcap]t’s being billed as a ‘title decider’ and it could well be if Man City fail to get anything from their trip to Stamford Bridge (5.30pm SKY).Both teams suffered shock defeats in the FA Cup last week so they can now concentrate on the league (!!), but if Chelsea were to take all three points then suddenly there’s a gap of eight points at the top.The bare stats say there’s a good chance of that happening as Chelsea come into this on the back of 10 straight Premier League wins at home while Man City are looking a long way short of their best in 2015 with successive defeats at the Etihad by Middlesbrough in the FA Cup and Arsenal’s 2-0 win in the league.Chelsea forward Diego Costa hasn’t been off the back page headlines all week and is unavailable for this having being found guilty of violent conduct against Liverpool.Mourinho has further problems with Cesc Fabregas and Filipe Luis missing – both were injured in the midweek League Cup win over Liverpool.For Man City Yaya Toure and Wilfried Bony are both unavailable as they are still involved in the Africa Cup of Nations.Chelsea v Man CityPremier League5.30pm SKYHEAD TO HEAD RECORD(Maximum 10 matches)Sep 2014 Premier Man City 1-1 ChelseaFeb 2014 FA Cup Man City 2-0 ChelseaFeb 2014 Premier Man City 0-1 ChelseaOct 2013 Premier Chelsea 2-1 Man CityApr 2013 FA Cup Chelsea 1-2 Man CityFeb 2013 Premier Man City 2-0 ChelseaNov 2012 Premier Chelsea 0-0 Man CityAug 2012 Community Shield Chelsea 2-3 Man CityMar 2012 Premier Man City 2-1 ChelseaDec 2011 Premier Chelsea 2-1 Man CityThe draw might the angle in at 12/5 with Star Sports.RECOMMENDED BETS (scale of 1-50 points)BACK DRAW for 5 points at around 12/5 with Star SportsRETURN SINCE START OF WORLD CUP: PROFIT 83.36 POINTSWhat’s your view?
