Chelsea vs Manchester City: Prediction and Betting Tips

16:30, Apr 17 2021
Chelsea vs Manchester City prediction for Saturday’s FA Cup semi-final showdown at Wembley Stadium in London. Chelsea play Manchester City in one of the most eyecatching fixtures or this weekend. Follow along for our free prediction and betting tips.

Chelsea need to get back their defensive steeliness

The Blues qualified for the semi-finals after winning four matches. They had three clean sheets and scored ten goals conceding one. They played against two teams from the Championship (Luton and Barnsley) one from the Premier League (Sheffield United) and one from the football league two (Morecambe).

Chelsea have been on very good form since the arrival of Thomas Tuchel back in January and have just two defeats in 18 matches under the German coach’s supervision. They qualified for the UEFA Champions League semi-final on Wednesday after eliminating FC Porto 2-1 on aggregate.

Tuchel’s defense seems to have lost their focus lately though as they have conceded in three of their last four games. The blues need to be at their best defensively against the Premier League’s best scoring side if they want to reach the final and make up for their defeat in last year’s final against Arsenal.

Manchester City’s four front battle continues

City are edging closer to their dream four titles in one season. They are comfortably leading the Premier League with 11 points, will play Tottenham in the EFL cup final, like their opponents they reached the UEFA Champions League semi-final, and have this match as an obstacle to reach to their 12th FA Cup final.

On the road to the semi-final, City beat Birmingham, Cheltenham, Swansea, and Everton. They scored 11 goals and conceded two goals with two clean sheets. City have one defeat in their last eight matches in all competitions. Pep Guardiola will be concerned with his team’s fitness after battling on four fronts all season.

 The Citizens will want to do better than last season in the FA Cup when they lost to Arsenal in the Semis. They will enter the game knowing they beat Chelsea in the Premier League this season at Stamford Bridge 3-1. A cup tie is different though and they have to be at their best.

Key Stats

  • Manchester City have scored in their last eight matches in all competitions
  • Chelsea have scored in five of their last six matches

Chelsea vs Manchester City Prediction
