Chelsea have previous with tonight’s ramifications. If they avoid defeat, then the Premier League champions are crowned.
In 2016, the beneficiaries were Leicester City – after the Blues’ 2-2 draw with Tottenham Hotspur in the famous Battle of The Bridge.
Fast forward to 2020 and the same result would see Liverpool as the title winners. But Manchester City are sure to come out fighting.
Manchester City are 3/4 favourites to win and keep Liverpool sweating. The Cityzens have blasted eight goals in their two games since Project Restart and an away win with Over 2.5 Goals is 29/20.
A draw, which could do serious damage to Chelsea’s Champions League hopes, is 11/4 with that 2-2 score-line at 11s.
Fancy Frank Lampard to mastermind a victory? There’s 13/4 about the home side bagging the three points.
Jorginho looks set to return for Chelsea and could play alongside N’golo Kante in midfield.
Olivier Giroud will hope his goal against Aston Villa keeps him in the side, despite the presence of Tammy Abraham.
Lampard may well keep with the same back four from the weekend, but the likes of Pedro and Christian Pulisic could feature.
City will be without top marksman Sergio Aguero, so Gabriel Jesus should lead the line.
Whether Leroy Sane has played his last game for Pep Guardiola remains up in the air, while Phil Foden could keep his place after his fine display against Burnley.
Giroud’s 6/1 to open the scoring, while Abraham is 2/1 to net anytime. Pulisic scored against Villa and is 3/1 to do so anytime here.
City’s Riyad Mahrez scored two goals in the thrashing of Burnley last time out and is at 16s to repeat that feat tonight.
Raheem Sterling has bagged once since the restart and is 3/2 anytime, while City’s midfield mastermind Kevin De Bruyne is 13/5 to net at any point
