Manchester City host Chelsea in a mouth-watering Premier League clash at The Etihad Stadium on Monday night and Freebets.com look at the pick of money back offers available on the televised match.

Man City moved to the top of the table with a 1-5 mid-week demolition job away at Tottenham, while Chelsea dropped points in a 0-0 draw with West Ham at Stamford Bridge despite dominating the game. The Blues will attempt to become the first side to take points off City at home this season and will be glad that Sergio Aguero misses out through injury. Manuel Pellegrini has quality alternatives at his disposal though, and it’s worth noting that Man City have not failed to score in their last 12 Premier League outings.

The Premier League game will be shown live on Sky Sports 1 at 8.00pm and is sure to appeal to both professional and casual football punters with pre-match and in-play betting available online.

Betfred 1-A-Piece; refund losing stakes on Correct Score bets if match ends 1-1. Free bet refund up to £50 max.

VERDICT: 1-1 is the most common draw result and at odds of around 6/1 may be a more fancied result for this particular game as it’s more likely than 0-0.
