Tips: Why Sergio Aguero is sure to net for Man City against Chelsea
The Tipster is backing Sergio Aguero to score for Manchester City against Chelsea in the Community Shield on Sunday
The Tipster is finding it hard to contain his excitement ahead of the return of the domestic season – and our man-in-the-know is backing Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero to score against Chelsea in the Community Shield on Sunday.
Our resident betting expert is also tipping Fernando Torres to net at Villa Park, but is still expecting Roberto Mancini’s side to lift their first piece of silverware this season.
Aguero to score at any time against Chelsea – 13/10
Aguero was one of City’s stand-out performers last season, scoring 23 league goals, with his most important strike coming in added time in their dramatic title-clinching 3-2 victory over Queens Park Rangers. The Argentine scored in the last meeting between these two sides in March, and the Tipster is backing Aguero to net in the Villa Park showpiece at 13/10.
Manchester City to beat Chelsea – 6/5
City lead in the head-to-head over the past three seasons between these two sides, with Mancini’s men winning four of the last six meetings. Chelsea have invested heavily over the summer months, but Roberto Di Matteo’s new-look side will take time to gel. So for that reason, the Tipster is backing City to beat Chelsea on Sunday at 6/5.
Over 2.5 goals in Chelsea v Manchester City – 4/5
Who could forget last year’s thrilling Community Shield encounter between City and Manchester United? Sir Alex Ferguson’s side came from behind to win 3-2 in a dramatic clash at Wembley. The last two meetings between Chelsea and City have produced three goals, and as a result, the Tipster reckons over 2.5 goals is an excellent bet at 4/5.
Torres to score at any time against Man City – 7/4
Torres appears to have finally put a miserable 18 months behind him, having helped Chelsea to the Champions League title and scoring four times en route to Spain defending their European championship crown. Our man-in-the-know reckons Torres will be keen to make a bright start to Chelsea’s domestic campaign, and is backing the Spaniard to score at any time against City at 7/4.
The long shot: Man City to score a penalty against Chelsea – 6/1
Chelsea are familiar with penalties following their dramatic shootout win over Bayern Munich in the Champions League final in May. In addition, Chelsea and City have both scored a penalty at their respective home grounds in the last two league encounters between these sides. So, the Tipster’s long shot for this edition is City to score a spot-kick against Chelsea at 6/1 (Alternatively, Chelsea to net a penalty is 7/1).
