The pressure looks to be on Chelsea as they host Manchester City in Thursday night’s top-four clash. Chelsea’s young guns are currently doing better than many pundits predicted in fourth place but that promise needs to be cemented with a place in next season’s Champions League.
At the time of writing, Chelsea have a five-point cushion over their nearest challengers, but both Wolves and Manchester United could close the gap to just two-points if winning their Wednesday night games.
Chelsea are also facing a formidable force in Manchester City, with Pep Guardiola’s team appearing to have banished thoughts of next year’s potential Champions League ban to squash Arsenal and Burnley in their first two post-lockdown bans. That means Man City looks the bet at a shade of odds-on.
