Premier League betting tips: Chelsea-Manchester City clash offers value for money

The Spanish striker, who signed for the Blues from Real Madrid in the summer transfer window, featured from the start against the Citizens and looked sharp during the opening exchanges.

He was speaking at Cobham and said: "I have great respect for Pep".

"I think our task now is just to support him and just to be there if he needs something from us". I like to watch his games.

As the result of last five matches for both the teams, Manchester City won all the matches and Chelsea won four matches and one match ended in a draw. I think this is very important this season.

City will be without Aguero for the game at Stamford Bridge, leaving an extra onus on the likes of Silva to provide the goals. We created chances to score but we did not take [them].

Manchester City's last three league matches may have seen City score 16 unanswered goals, but Chelsea present a far tougher proposition than Crystal Palace (thrashed 5-0 last week) and Watford (6-0 the week before that). They have started very well and are in a great moment with lots of confidence.

The Italian said: "It will not be easy to make decisions tomorrow, because, in my eyes, there is the last performance against Atletico Madrid".

At just 46-years-old, Guardiola is one of the most decorated managers in the game.

Manchester City will be without defender Benjamin Mendy after confirming he has ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament and is to undergo surgery. The initial timetable is an encouraging one for City, as the expectation is that he will only miss one game, and a total of two weeks of training. "We want to become a big club, I've been at two incredible clubs in my life [Barcelona and Bayern Munich] ... you have to overcome this situation", Guardiola said. For sure, our fans try to push us from the start until the end.

"About this issue, I think I have already spoken".

Chelsea know that a win on Saturday evening would put their name right back in the title race discussion, despite being only three points behind both Manchester clubs.

Tomorrow is a massive clash with Chelsea, on the road at Stamford Bridge.
