Chelsea travel to Manchester to face Man City at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday evening for our 13th Premier League fixture of the season.

Former Manchester United and Tottenham striker Dimitar Berbatov has given his prediction for the game and is expecting a five-goal thriller.

The Betfair brand ambassador exclusively told Metro UK that he’s predicting a 3-2 win in favour of Manchester City.

Berbatov said: “City need to bounce back, they are now nine points behind Liverpool and if they lose this one, Chelsea will become title contenders.

“Frank Lampard’s side are on a great run and they can cause City problems. But saying that, Guardiola will prepare his team to the maximum and they can’t afford any more slip ups whilst Liverpool are flying. They need the win and I think they will get it at the Etihad.”

Chelsea are 3rd in the league and one point above Manchester City who are fourth. A win for Chelsea will mean the Blues have won their last seven league games.
