Man City Has Slight Edge To Win on Sunday

The "marquee" match of Sunday's slate of English Premier League games will see Man City play host to Chelsea. While the EPL season is just a few games old, this match will have major ramifications for the top of the table.

Chelsea has gotten off to a perfect start this season, going 4-0-0 in its first 4 games while posting a league best goal differential of 9 goals. Chelsea is currently 2 points ahead of both Southampton and Aston Villa despite the fact that both of those teams have played one more game.

Man City, on the other hand, has stumbled slightly out of the gate, posting a record of 2-1-1 in its first four games. This puts Man City a full five points behind Chelsea after just four games - while it is early in the season, Man City would not like to dig itself into an eight point hole after just five games, which makes a victory tomorrow in front of its home fans absolutely crucial.

Man City has the slight edge heading into tomorrow match - here are the current betting odds:

Man City, 2.50
Draw, 3.10
Chelsea, 3.10

So, based on these odds, a successful £100 wager on Man City would yield a total profit of £250, while a successful £100 bet on Chelsea would result in a total profit of £310.

According to the bookmakers, the three likeliest outcomes of Sunday's game are:

Draw 1-1, 7.00
Man City 1-0, 10.00
Man City 2-1, 10.00

Sunday's game features two of the best players in the world - Sergio Aguero and Diego Costa. According to the bookmakers, Aguero is listed at 2.30 to score on Sunday while Costa is listed at 2.30 as well.


Man City vs Chelsea games always hold a special place in the hearts of football fans around the world, though Sunday's game seems to have an extra weight of importance to it due to the two team's standings in the EPL table. This should be a fantastic game.
