Pablo Zabaleta looks set to return to the Manchester City starting line-up for Monday’s crucial Premier League clash at Chelsea, who are 8/1 with bet365 to win the game at Stamford Bridge 2-1.
The Argentinian defender has overcome his injury problems in time for the trip to the capital and will play at right-back rather than Micah Richards who is losing his fitness race.
Stefan Savic replaced calf injury victim Richards for last week’s 2-0 Champions League win against Bayern Munich but Roberto Mancini is set to place his faith in Zabaleta for the vital match against Andre Villas-Boas’ side.
In what is likely to be a tight encounter, the goalless draw is available at 12/1, City will once again be without left-back Aleksandar Kolarov who remains sidelined with a groin injury, while Nigel de Jong and James Milner are both pushing for places in the side.
Former Arsenal star Samir Nasri has started City’s last four games but is likely to be rested.
