Storylines

Man. City: This team has to be ultra confident that it will win, but it must remain composed and not assume it will just be a cakewalk. After beating Chelsea 6-0 in Premier League action on Feb. 10, all signs points to another victory. Chelsea has lost three of its last five games, while City has won four in a row with 15 goals scored and two conceded.  

Chelsea: Rumors are swirling as to what's going to happen with coach Maurizio Sarri. Is this a cup he has to win to save his job? It's a confusing time at Stamford Bridge with the club really lacking conviction and falling into a poor run of form. A victory here would certainly buy him some time, but a blowout loss will likely have him cleaning out his desk on Monday. 

Manchester City vs. Chelsea prediction

City scores twice in either half, pours the pressure on the Blues and wins the title with a score of 4-1.
