They remain unbeaten at home,though they’ve drawn the last three 1-1 and have yet to face a top-six side.
Inthe last two seasons they’ve triumphed in just four of 10 such matches at theEtihad, while last term their record read a measly W1-D1-L3, with their onlysuccess versus 6th place Southampton.
Chelsea stretched their winning streak to seven with victoryover Spurs at the Bridge.
Antonio Conte has got his defence superbly organisedbut they finally conceded courtesy of a Christian Eriksen thunderbolt.
They’venetted 19 themselves in this run, though just five have come on the road as allthree away victories have ended with fewer than three strikes.
While at Juventus, Conte’s side avoided defeat in six oftheir nine trips to fellow top-four clubs as the encounters averaged just 1.89gpg with eight seeing no more than two goals.
We expect a similarly sive mind-set here and although City have had trouble keeping clean sheets this season, only Spurs have scored more than once against them in the league, so under 2.5 goals looks a great shout at odds-against.
