Owen predicts Man City against Chelsea match
Posted On May 8, 2021
Man City and Chelsea return to action on Saturday at the Etihad Stadium, in what is expected to be an interesting match.
The two clubs are on their way to the match with full confidence after their midweek victories in the UCL.
While Chelsea defeated Real Madrid, Man City defeated PSG and both sides will compete in the final later this month.
Speaking ahead of today’s match, former football star Michael Owen has dropped his predictions.
Owen told BetVictor it was a dress rehearsal for the UEFA Champions League final at the Etihad as Chelsea head north.
“This should be another intense tactical battle between two of the best leaders in the game. What makes it more interesting is that both have contrasting styles, ”Owen said.
He stressed that even though Chelsea defeated Man City in the FA Cup, he believes, however, that they will set up much the same thing again and try to hit City on the counter.
“For City, we know what to expect. Ball retention is a big part of their game, so with that combined with Chelsea’s patient approach I can see another tight game develop. It’s set to be a fascinating encounter, but it’s one I think will probably end all square. Manchester City 1, Chelsea 1, ”he said.
