Top Manchester City vs. Chelsea prop picks

Fornelli is going all-in on Manchester City to win at -111 (risk $111 to win $100) and hoist its first European Trophy. Chelsea has won the last two meetings between the teams but has lost three of its last four overall, and City will put all of its cards on the table this time around. The Citizens ran away with the Premier League, posting a plus-51 goal differential and finishing 12 points clear of Manchester United and 19 ahead of Chelsea. Its place as league champion was essentially secure when it faced the Blues in the last matchup, and it was focusing on being rested and healthy for this showdown.

With City playing essentially its “B” team, Fornelli tells SportsLine, “it outplayed Chelsea in the latest loss anyway, even if the results didn’t match up.” Fornelli said on the Early Edge podcast this week that City had the clear advantage in expected goals at 2.2 to 0.8 in the 2-1 loss. 

In a January league match at Stamford Bridge, the Citizens outshot Chelsea 18-9 and had a 6-2 edge in shots on goal in a 3-1 victory. Star trio Kevin De Bruyne, Ilkay Gundogan and Foden all scored first-half goals. De Bruyne has 10 goals and 18 assists in all competitions this season, and Gundogan (17) and Foden (15) are among the six players with at least 13 goals.
