2016/17 Premier League

In what looks set to be the money back special of the weekend for the Premier League game of the weekend, Ladbrokes offer money back if Man City beat Chelsea on Sunday.
Manchester City v Chelsea will bring down the curtain on another round of Premier League football and the firm which welcomes new players with up to £100 free bet is set to refund bets should the home side prevail in the 4.00pm kick-off.
Broadcast live on Sky Sports 1, this match is sure to appeal to both casual punters and professional gamblers who can bet on Correct Score, First Goalscorer and Scorecast markets for the game with the prospect of up to £25 free bet refund should the Citizens live up to their favourites tag. Looking at the odds in the top right of this page (scroll down for mobile users) we can see that City's home advantage puts this match slightly in their favour, but a close game is anticipated.
The hosts looked to be heading for a good result away to Bayern Munich in the Champions League before being done by a last minute winner on Wednesday. Manuel Pellegrini's side have now failed to win in three consecutive matches including a rare home defeat to Stoke, but will take solace from the following stats heading into this encounter. City are undefeated in 28 of their last 31 matches in the Premier League, have scored at least 2 goals in 11 of their last 12 league games and perhaps more importantly have won 6 of their last 7 home matches against Chelsea in all competitions.
The Blues may have their work cut out then, if they are to emulate last season's 0-1 win at The Etihad. Chelsea drew 1-1 with Schalke in mid-week, but have won all four of their Premier League matches so far this season. Jose Mourinho's side have won their last 5 away matches in the Premier League, including a memorable 3-6 triumph at Everton when they last went on the road. However, a trip to face the champions will provide them with an altogether different test and those siding with the Blues in Correct Score, First Goalscorer and Scorecast markets will be happy to have the insurance of a free bet refund should Man City win the game.
