Manchester City have taken eleven games to reach the Premier League summit and the big question is now whether any side will knock them off their perch. The latest football betting odds imply that Pep Guardiola’s team are heavily likely to record a sixth title triumph in the space of seven seasons, with the champions clicking into gear after big wins over Manchester United and Bournemouth.

City have scored twenty-eight goals already this term and they should be able to cope even if Erling Haaland is missing. Julian Alvarez is a World Cup winner and it was Jeremy Doku who caught the eye against Bournemouth when having an involvement in five goals. It remains to be seen whether the Belgian is selected for this encounter though.

Chelsea have only achieved fifteen points from eleven games played and the 4-1 win at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium was something of an oddity. After being outplayed in the opening exchanges, the Blues benefitted from poor discipline in the Spurs ranks, with Nicolas Jackson able to pilfer a facile hat-trick.

The forward is unlikely to have as much joy against a watertight Manchester City defence for whom John Stones is back in the fold, although Cole Palmer is a former Cityzen who will look to lower their colours. We think the fact that City have conceded five times on the road this season means the best bet could be an away win and both teams to score.
