Manchester City vs Chelsea Predictions and Free Tips from our expert tipsters when the teams go head-to-head in English FA Cup on Sunday, 8 January 2023.

Defending English champions Manchester City are chasing after another FA Cup triumph. They are in great form, and the additions of Erling Haaland and Julian Alvarez have only made them stronger.

Meanwhile, Chelsea are not all having a good season. They are struggling to stay in the top half of the PL league table, and on top of that their latest clash was against this same opponent – which ended in a loss.

Pep Guardiola’s men have a great h2h record against this foe – and particularly so in recent years. In fact, they are on a four-game winning streak, and kept clean sheets in all four of these clashes.

It is also noteworthy that they registered wins in five of the last seven h2h encounters at this stadium. It goes without saying that the Blues are not at all in a shape to take on the reigning English champions.

The Citizens will be eager to record a fifth win in a row against this opponent. Considering recent form, Chelsea might not even be that particular about making a deep run in the FA Cup. Their priority would be a top-four finish in the Premier League.

The latest meeting between the two took place just days before, and it ended in a 1-0 win for Guardiola’s men. Thus they kept alive the trend of registering low-scoring wins against Chelsea for one more game week.

Anticipate not many goals this Sunday.

As mentioned earlier, Pep’s men kept clean sheets in the last four h2h clashes in a row. They are also one of the best defensive sides in the English top flight. Chances are low that the Blues will be finding the back of the net this weekend.

With 21 goals to his name so far in the Premier League, Erling Haaland is on course to break the record for most goals in a league season in England. He is a great pick to find the back of the net this Sunday at the Etihad.
