Chelsea v Man City betting tips – City gunning for quad

We’re down to the final four teams in the 2020/21 FA Cup and it’s arguable that the two strongest outfits will clash with each other on Saturday 17 April, with Chelsea and Manchester City meeting at Wembley Stadium for a teatime encounter which should be an intriguing match.

At this moment in time, Pep Guardiola’s team still have the potential to win a historic quadruple, with the Citizens having experienced an amazing season and they’ll be keen to win the FA Cup after missing out on this trophy last term considering that they were beaten by Arsenal in the semis.

Manchester City Big Favourites to Beat Chelsea

If you compare the FA Cup outright betting odds, then you will find Manchester City are favourites to win this competition. One bookmaker offers 11/2 that they win all four pieces of available silverware, with the Premier League already in the bag and there is also the League Cup and Champions League.

As far as the match betting odds for this match are concerned, then you can get no bigger than 3/4 about the Citizens winning in normal time, with Guardiola having a massive squad of quality players from which to select and they have enjoyed a host of victories in the past few months.

The teams met at Stamford Bridge on 3 January where City raced into a 3-0 first-half lead and eventually came away with a 3-1 victory which was one of the final acts of Frank Lampard’s time in charge of the Blues, while Sergio Aguero is looking to sign off with a flourish after recently returning to the first team.

Can Chelsea Pull Off an FA Cup Shock in this Clash?

If you’re interested in placing a football bet on Chelsea to win this match, then you can get betting odds as big as 4/1 about the Blues claiming a victory which would make them FA Cup betting favourites when it comes to the final against either Leicester or Southampton.

Thomas Tuchel has been a fairly effective manager since taking charge at Stamford Bridge and the 5-2 home reverse against West Brom can be regarded as something of a blip considering that they were previously watertight against several other opponents.

There have been a few disciplinary issues of late and the Champions League remains a central focus for Chelsea, although they’ll look to keep things tight and perhaps the best option could be to look at the draw at available betting odds of 29/10 with William Hill.

What Are the Best Betting Tips for Chelsea v Man City?

We’re going to take a punt on Manchester City in the win to nil betting market considering how watertight they have looked recently, allied to the fact that we’re not anticipating Chelsea being particularly adventurous against a team who will clearly hurt anyone who leaves spaces in behind them.

If you compare the latest betting odds, you can back Pep Guardiola’s side at odds bigger than 2/1 that they win this match without conceding and they’ll be looking for a repeat of that recently impressive performance at the King Power Stadium where they managed to limit Leicester City to barely any shots on target.

There could even be some merit in placing a couple of correct score bets on this match and we’re happy to look at 2-0 and 3-0 wins for Manchester City at 17/2 and 15/1 respectively, with the betting favourites having the tools to score a number of goals in this clash.

Much depends on the Chelsea approach to the match and it’s surely in the interests of Thomas Tuchel to keep things tight, with Under 2.5 Goals trading at betting odds of bigger than even money and there’s every chance that a cagey approach could be adopted by betting outsiders who will want to tread carefully.
