The first trophy of the season will be awarded this afternoon, and it will go to Manchester City.
It’s difficult to see how Chelsea can stop the Etihad Stadium juggernaut, in fact after the 6-0 drubbing they received in their recent league meeting today could be about damage control!
The bookies appreciate this and the odds surrounding goals for City reflect this. Sergio Aguero is the hot favourite to open the scoring, having scored 13 goals in 16 games against today’s opponents. But we’re going to take a punt on Kevin de Bruyne opening the scoring. The Belgian midfielder has now recovered from injury and is showing the form that made him a leading candidate for player of the season last year.
Recommendations: De Bruyne to score first, 1 pt, at 10/1, bet365
