Chelsea vs Manchester City Betting Tips: Jesus to maintain prolific FA Cup form at Wembley
January 6, 2022
class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>Boasting an excellent record in this competition, Al Hain-Cole is backing the Brazilian striker to fire for Guardiola's side in Saturday's semi-final
Having conceded five times to West Bromwich Albion in their last home game in domestic competition, Chelsea will need to redouble their defensive efforts when Manchester City visit Stamford Bridge in Saturday’s FA Cup clash.
The Citizens have won 16 successive matches on the road in all competitions, scoring 42 times on that run and finding the net in each game.
Although often kept on the bench due to Pep Guardiola’s preference for a strikerless formation, Gabriel Jesus has been on target in each of his last two FA Cup outings.
The Brazil international has actually scored nine time in 15 FA Cup games and looks a strong 5/1 (6.00) bet to open the scoring here, as well as 8/5 (2.60) to strike anytime
On the scoresheet in each of his last three games against the Blues, Kevin De Bruyne is also a tempting proposition at 7/4 (2.75) anytime.
Phil Foden will be in confident spirits after striking in both legs of the Champions League win over Borussia Dortmund and can be backed at 21/10 (3.10) to mark another high-profile tie with a goal.
Thomas Tuchel has taken a leaf out of his opposite number’s book recently by overlooking his regular strikers in favour of starting Kai Havertz up front.
Despite his two-goal starring role in last weekend’s 4-1 victory against Crystal Palace, the German is an 11/1 (12.00) outside bet to open the scoring here and on offer at generous 15/4 (4.75) anytime odds.
In excellent form over the last few weeks with three goals to his name in six appearances for club and country, Mason Mount is a potentially lucrative 4/1 (5.00) anytime bet.
Similarly, Christian Pulisic has looked almost back to his best following a spate of injuries, scoring four goals in five matches for Chelsea and the USA.
Having opened the scoring in last year’s home win over City, he can be backed at 3/1 (4.00) to extend that run with another big goal here.
