Chelsea vs Manchester City: Latest odds, team news, preview and predictions

Manchester City meet Chelsea in the Carabao Cup final at Wembley on Sunday.

Both sides have enjoyed plenty of success in this competiton down the years, each securing the silverware on five occasions, although quite remarkably, it is the first meeting of these two teams in the final.

The recent form of the rivals, though, means that Manchester City come into this clash as strong favourites to take the trophy - having thrashed Maurizio Sarri's men 6-0 just two weeks ago.


Latest odds

Indeed, the Citizens are 4/7 (1.57) favourites to win the Carabao Cup final inside 90 minutes whilst the same firm offer 17/4 (5.25) that the Blues are winners at Wembley.

The odds compilers offer 100/30 (4.33) that the match remains deadlocked at the end of normal time on Sunday afternoon, which would lead to extra time and potentially penalties.

City are chalked up as a 2/7 (1.29) chance to lift the tophy via any route and the Blues can be backed at 5/2 (3.50) to take the trophy this weekend.

Team news

John Stones and Gabriel Jesus missed City's Champions League trip to Germany in midweek. and Pep Guardiola will hope that both men are fit enough to feature at Wembley.

The Blues are sweating over the fitness of goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga ahead of Sunday's crunch clash.

Goals aplenty?

Manchester City have scored an astonishing 20 goals in their last five victories in domestic competition.

As such, 8/11 (1.73) that there are more than two goals in this game. The same firm offer just 8/13 (1.62) that Guardiola's side score more than once against the Blues.


A tight tussle?

It is worth noting, however, that none of the previous five matches between these teams have seen goals at both ends - with four of those five fixtures producing fewer than three goals.

The odds compilers offer 19/20 (1.95) that either side fails to find the net on this occasion, whilst fewer than three goals can be backed at even money (2.0).

Prediction

Better value, though, lies in backing Manchester City to win a match in which at least three goals are scored. The 11/8 (2.38) selection would have paid dividends in 10 of City's last 12 wins in domestic competition.
