Eden Hazard to score anytime @ 11/4 with Paddy Power

Manchester City took a huge amount of pressure off themselves by winning the Carabao Cup last week. The situation was made worse before the game by their shock FA Cup exit at the hands of Wigan Athletic a week earlier, a result which ended their hopes of an unprecedented quadruple. Now Pep Guardiola has his first trophy in the bag, though, his attention can turn back to securing the Premier League title with another big game, at the Etihad Stadium, against current champions Chelsea.

For Antonio Conte’s men, this is the third of four season-defining games, in the Champions League against Barcelona and the Premier League, after a defeat at Manchester United last week. Conte has been far from happy all season, and he has admitted his side could miss out on the top four if they’re not careful. Links with moves away from Stamford Bridge, most recently with a return to the Italian national team, have been an unnecessary distraction. No one has come close to City in their own back yard and it is tough to see that changing, but 11/4 on Eden Hazard to score is a very good opportunity to make some money.

City will be happy to get over the line against Arsenal last week and, provided they do so again in the Premier League on Thursday, they will be hoping to maintain a 16-point lead at the top.

WILLIAM HILL HAVE YOU COVERED!

Chelsea, though, will be licking their wounds after the United result and will not want to fall behind the Champions League chasing pack any further.

Team News

Neither side has any fresh concerns to contend with.
