There are football matches and there moments that change the course of history. When two forces collide in the ultimate battle for supremacy, with each fearful but determined to rise above all others and be crowned as champions of their craft. To slay the enemy in front of thousands upon thousands of adoring fans or travelling in to hostile territory to slay the dragon. This is real football. These are the days that truly change the world. This is top of the table Chelsea Vs second placed Manchester City.
These two have been far and away the best sides in the competition this season and deservedly find themselves battling for the title. Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea have been the side that most pundits are predicting to stay be at the EPL summit come May but City just won’t go away. The reigning champions are $3.60 with Sportsbet to get a win at Stamford Bridge this weekend and it could be worth a shot with star striker Sergio Aguero set to return to the fold and Chelsea possibly losing Cesc Fabregas and Diego Costa through injury and suspension. The Argentinean loves the big occasion and at $5.50 for the first goal of this epic tie an Aguero, Manchester City double could be the place to throw your free bet from Sportsbet.
But there is a siege mentality at Chelsea this week. Mourinho has his troops and fans fired up after Costa was charged with stamping on Liverpool’s Emre Can in the Capital One Cup Semi Final on Tuesday. The charge is what could see the Spanish striker miss this all important clash and The Special One isn’t happy. He has refused to do the pre match press conference and is appealing any ban his player may receive. Chelsea could be weakened by all of this red tape but I actually feel it will unify them and give them the fight to push City all the way.
