The Citizens set a new Premier League record being the 1st club in the EPL history to win 14 straight top-flight matches in 1 season moving 11 points clear at the top of the table after an incredible 2-1 derby win against Manchester United last weekend. It looks like the season is over with no team being able to stop Manchester City from winning the title. Pep Guardiola is trying to maintain the rhythm and increase the lead till February when the Champions League will be back and they will have to face FC Basel in a double-legged knock-out match. The festive period is very busy in the Premier League soccer with 7 rounds of fixtures scheduled in 21 days. It was an amazing round for the Citizens as all their opponents dropped points last weekend. Manchester City have an easy program till the end of the year and we expect them to win all their 5 matches and secure their leading position. They travel to play the worst attack in the league, 19th place Swansea and the only question is how big it will be the goals-margin. The Citizens should easily cover the -1.5 AH (Asian Handicap), destroy Swansea and return home with the three points.

Free Soccer Pick: Manchester City to win with -1.5 AHBest Lines Offered: Pinnacle.

Huddersfield bounced back putting an end to their 4-match losing streak and winning their home match 2-0 against Brighton to climb till 12th place in the standings. It was a crucial victory for them as they sit just 5 points above the danger zone. Chelsea suffered a shock defeat 1-0 away at West Ham on Saturday and will be keen to come back to winning ways in their 1st ever EPL meeting against the newly promoted Huddersfield. Chelsea have only kept three clean sheets on the road and we expect Huddersfield to contribute on the scoreboard. This match will not be a walk in the park for the reigning champs as Huddersfield are another animal when playing on their turf winning three of their last 4 home games. Chelsea should have enough to win this clash, secure their 3rd spot and maintain the pressure on The Red Devils.

Manchester United vs. Bournemouth

Manchester United host Bournemouth to Old Trafford on Wednesday night in what should be an easy win for the home side. United are expected to revenge the 2-1 derby defeat against Man City and destroy Bournemouth. The brain from the midfield Paul Pogba will serve a three-game ban that rules him out of this match while Zlatan Ibrahimovic is expected to make his appearance in the starting XI and replace Romelu Lukaku who is considered guilty for the 2 conceded goals against Man City. The visitors are struggling to win matches being winless in their last 4 EPL fixtures. The Red Devils might be without Marcos Rojo who came off injured on Sunday. United are now 11 points behind leaders Man City and they should be careful not to lose the 2nd place as Chelsea are breathing down their neck being just 3 points behind them. Easy home win expected.
