Chelsea vs Manchester City Match Preview & Team News
The hosts sit on the top of the Premier League along with Liverpool and Manchester United, and they look pretty confident so far. Thomas Tuchel’s side missed the chance to win just once, and just Liverpool held them to a draw. The Blues head to this game after beating Arsenal 3:0 last weekend, and they recorded four straight wins in all competitions. Timo Werner and the lads had some troubles against Aston Villa in the EFL Cup during the mid-week, but they managed to beat them after the penalty shootout. Chelsea has been almost unbeatable in the back so far, as the home side conceded only once in five rounds. If they pick up where they left off, Chelsea might celebrate another victory over the Citizens.
The away side had a hiccup in the Premier League last weekend, as they booked a goalless draw against Southampton at home. They scored six against RB Leipzig in the Champions League and repeated that record against Wycombe in the EFL Cup during the mid-week. Pep Guardiola’s side is already three points behind the leading three clubs, and another defeat to the Blues might hurt their title bid. Manchester City also allowed only one goal in the Premier League so far, but they spilled five points. It will be the biggest challenge for Jack Grealish and the lads so far, and they need to remain disciplined if they want o get back home undefeated.
