Man City v Chelsea Team News

After succumbing to a 3-1 defeat in the hands of Liverpool, the Premier League defending champions Manchester City lost ground in the race for the summit with Liverpool opening up a 9-point gap between them.

Guardiola’s side has been impressive this season (W8 D1 L3) but even that is sometimes never enough owing to the vicious competition in the league.

The champions have to always be at their best and City just haven’t been. Slip-ups at Norwich and a defeat by Wolverhampton at home have really hampered their title ambitions and the Noisy Neighbours know that a loss here would all but condemn them to former champions status.

Manchester City will walk into this clash wanting all three points but of concern to their manager is their recent below-par performances argued by a narrow win over Southampton and a back-breaking draw with Atalanta before the loss to Liverpool.

That notwithstanding, City can never be written off owing to the class and talent in the squad. They will be looking to get back to winning ways on Saturday. They just might.

With City’s aura of invincibility gone, Chelsea will come into this fixture believing they can get something out of it. The Blues are unbeaten in 6 domestic fixtures and they deserve much credit for their fine run of form. Their emerging academy products are stepping up to the occasion.

However, even their manager acknowledges that his side is still a work in progress matters experience to the squad as well as adapting to the intrigues of the league. Frailties at the back have seen them concede crucial goals especially in the last quarter of the game where the youngsters lose focus.

The Blues will need to improve their defensive attire against a mercurial City side if they want to leave with a result. A difficult task. Chelsea, should they win, will convincingly stake a place in the top four, surpassing even their fans’ expectations of the season and that is exactly what they will want to accomplish.

Injured or Suspended Players:

City will miss out on Bernado Silva’s services after the Portuguese midfielder was suspended for a social media post. Others set to sit out include A. Laporte, L. Sane and Zinchenko all out with knee injuries.

Chelsea will be without R. Loftus-Cheek (Achilles Tendon Injury), A. Rudiger (Pelvis Injury) and long term absentee Van Ginkel out with a Knee Injury.

Man City vs Chelsea Predictions

With a Manchester City side hungry for a win, the wind might blow in their sails on Saturday as they play catch up to runaway leaders Liverpool. They are the superior side in terms of squad depth and experience but will not have it easy against the Blues. Although lacking in defence, the Chelsea attacking front is excellent and they too should find the net here.

Backing both teams to score while a win for Man City is not too far fetched.
