Match Preview


A game with a lot of ramifications for the top-most tier in the Premier League. City is slowly coming to grasp with the level of competitiveness they will face this season if they are to make claim to a third crown in a row. Chelsea, on the other hand, is thriving under Frank Lampard, despite their ban. By all means, the best match the PL has to offer this weekend.

The Blues held their ground at the Stamford Bridge the last match-day, as they took on Crystal Palace. While the first half was comparatively quiet, the duo of Tammy Abraham and American sensation Christian Pulisic slotted in two goals, to keep the winning streak going on for their squad.

Meanwhile, reigning champions City were flabbergasted at the Anfield by Liverpool, with a 3-1 scorecard. While Pep’s men did dominate the game in stretches, they failed to make the most of their chances in front of the goal, whereas, their opposite number was clinical in that regard.

This Saturday, the whole of the top-tier of the PL will be looking forward to the result of this game. The home advantage and the hurt from the previous fixture make it a dangerous prospect for anyone to tackle Manchester City right now. Already trailing behind the Reds by eight points, the Citizens know they have to respond now to still be in the hunt for the title.

The experience will be another factor working in favor of Pep’s men. They are back-to-back champions, and are well-versed in dealing with these kinds of pressure situations, whereas, due to the ban, Chelsea are practically represented by a bunch of kids.

Moreover, recent h2h history, which has been skewed in favor of the Citizens, especially the 6-0 drubbing the last time these two met in a league clash, shifts the scale in the direction of Manchester City for a win.


However, keep note that Chelsea have won nine of their last eleven matches and their previous seven on the road. Coupling this with the struggles City are having at the back, BTTS emerges as a hot favorite for this fixture



Team News And Statistics


MANCHESTER CITY
 Rodri and David Silva made remarkable recoveries and are both expected to start here.

Guardiola will also hope to have Ederson available.

Bernardo Silva serves a one-match ban this weekend after admitting a breach of FA rules.

As neither Stones nor Otamendi have convinced of late, it wouldn't be a surprise if Fernandinho and Rodri started at centre-back.

CHELSEA
Jorginho will return to the starting XI after serving a one-match ban.

Azpilicueta will return at right-back on Saturday after dropping out of the team before the break.

Barkley failed to recover from injury in time to stay in England squad during the break and remains a doubt here.
