Manchester City vs. Chelsea, 35th round of the English Premier League, May 8

Manchester City will play at home against Chelsea in the 35th round of the English Premier League. The match will take place on May 8.

Manchester City F.C.

Done - Manchester City have finally reached the Champions League final: billions of euros spent, Josep Guardiola being invited - at some point, there was a feeling that City was simply doomed, but no, they finally did it and at the end of May they will play the most important match in history of the club.

The return match between Man City and Paris Saint-Germain was held by a fairly predictable scenario. Guardiola's team used the Parisians’ mistakes, scoring two goals after two quick attacks.

Perhaps this is not the case when it is necessary to talk about total superiority, but it must be admitted that the PSG stars remained in the shadow of the Manchester City team. The current City are strong, first of all, by their team play.

Manchester City could have won the Premier League last week if Liverpool managed to beat Manchester United. But the game at Old Trafford, as everyone knows, did not take place due to the protests of fans, who that day demanded from the Manchester United management to sell the club. City fans will have to wait a title bit, the title will not go away from them.

Chelsea F.C.

As for Chelsea, we can confidently speak of an incredible superiority - the London club smashed Real Madrid at Stamford Bridge in the second leg of the Champions League semi-final. Let's be honest, Madrid have not looked so desperate for a long time.

The score, by the way, is not so critical for Real, only 0:2, but in terms of the content, it was a real nightmare for the “Royal Club”. Mason Mount, one of the leaders of Chelsea, noted right after the game that Real Madrid could easily concede five goals.

Now Chelsea need to switch to the Premier League for a while. Thomas Tuchel's team still hasn't guaranteed a place in the Top-4, while the gap from the competitors cannot be called safe.

Surprising fact: Chelsea have made it to the Champions League final on all three occasions, changing coaches throughout the season. In the 2007/2008 season, instead of Jose Mourinho, Roman Abramovich invited Avram Grant, four years later, instead of Andre Villas-Boas, Roberto Di Matteo was appointed. Well, this season Thomas Tuchel came to Chelsea in early 2021 after Frank Lampard's resignation.

All predictions for Football


  • Manchester City and Chelsea have played two games earlier this season.
  • First, City trampled Frank Lampard's Chelsea, and then - in mid-April - lost to Londoners in the FA Cup semi-finals.

Our Prediction

After Tuchel's appointment, Chelsea have become one of the best teams in Europe. In just a couple of months. Of course, the upcoming match will be discussed in the context of the Champions League final. It will be something like a rehearsal. And, of course, they won't show us anything at this rehearsal. Roughly speaking, we do not need to know what N'Golo Kanté is capable of, and they will not show us all the best that Oleksandr Zinchenko can do (well, okay, if you need it so badly, ask Neymar, he will tell you).

In general, they will end in a draw. And it is possible that zeros will remain on the scoreboard. Before the Champions League final, they will try to play so that the opponent does not figure out all the ideas for the final.

Our prediction: draw for 3.56 odds in BC 1XBET.
