Two of English Premier League's Top Teams Set To Square off on Sunday

In the minds of many, the English Premier League season will officially kick off on Sunday when Man City plays host to Chelsea.

Sure, we are currently almost two weeks into the new EPL season, but fans have been waiting for that one big game to really get excited about the new season. These fans will get what they have been waiting for on Sunday, as Man City is set to take on Chelsea.

Prior to this season getting underway, Chelsea and Man City were the two favourites to win the EPL, followed by Arsenal and Manchester United. Chelsea are the defending English Premier League champions, having easily bested Man City and Arsenal last season en route to winning their 4th Premier League title. Chelsea would obviously like to win another title, though teams such as Man City and Manchester United have improved in the offseason. The general consensus is that the race will be much closer than last year, which saw Chelsea win by a full eight points.


This is a big contest for both teams, though Chelsea desperately needs a win after playing to a draw in their first game. Chelsea does not want to start the season five points behind the likes of Man City and Man Utd, which is exactly what will happen if they lose on Sunday.

Here are the odds for Sunday's contest:

Man City, 2.15
Draw, 3.30
Chelsea, 3.75

As you can see, Man City has the slight edge to win, thanks, in large part, to their home field advantage. Given the talent levels of both teams, however, either Chelsea or Man City is certainly capable of winning.

According to the bookmakers, the three likeliest outcomes of Sunday's game look like this:

Draw 1-1, 7.00
Man City Wins 1-0, 7.50
Man City Wins 2-1, 8.50


Who do you think will win Sunday's contest between two of the biggest football clubs in the world?
