Chelsea stand in the middle of the table and they can’t be happy with their performance this season. The last season champions in Premier League want to forget this season and start the next one much better and get back on the winning way. Home team still have some theoretical chances to reach the place which leads in Europa League next season, but it’s hard to believe that can happen because they have 9 points less than Manchester United and maybe they are not interested to play in that European competition next season. Chelsea’s recent form is not at the high level, only one win in the last 6 matches in all competitions, but their home performance is much better. In the last 12 home matches in all competitions, Chelsea lost only once and they believe that can make positive result against Manchester City.
Manchester City stand at the 4th position and their main goal is to finish the season in the Top 4 and play in the Champions League next season. The title race is over for Man City because Leicester City have 15 points more few rounds until the end of the season, but they want to finish the season in the Top 3 and qualify in the Champions League directly. Four days ago they have big success in the Champions League after they eliminated PSG beating them in the second leg 1-0. The match against Chelsea will the 4th match for City in the last 10 days, so maybe their a little bit tired, but they have many other options. Visitors are favorites to win this game, but this is the derby match and in the matches like these everything is possible.
