Chelsea vs Manchester City Match Preview and Team News
Top clashes are on the cards this weekend, and the biggest of them all is definitely league leaders Chelsea hosting champions Manchester City at Stamford Bridge. In a replay of the Champions League final last season, European champions Chelsea have the upper hand. They are top of the standings with 13 points, three ahead of fifth-placed City. The Blues are coming from a 1-1 draw with Aston Villa in the League Cup, a game they went on to win on post-match penalties. This season, the hosts have scored in all their games and have four clean sheets in five league games. In four of the five games in the league, they have scored two or more and head to this game on back-to-back 3-0 wins in the league. Hakim Ziyech plays fantastically and creates a lot of problems for the opposition’s defense. Many clubs are ready to give a fortune for the arrival of this guy. Timo Werner is an incredible player, and in the one-on-one game, he is unstoppable. He should build upon his last season’s performance.
Manchester City will not be pushovers, though they haven’t had a run as good as Chelsea’s this season. Top of their agenda will be three points, but they’ll also be looking to stop a run of three straight losses to Chelsea, including a painful one in the Champions League final in May. In their last league game, City looked sluggish and went on to draw 0-0 at home to Southampton. They, however, recovered to thrash Wycombe Wanderers 6-1 in a comeback win in the League Cup, and they’ll be looking to put their best foot forward this time. With 18 goals in the last five matches, City has the potency they need in the attack. They have 11 in the five league games played but will have issues defensively, going to this game without the injured Aymeric Laporte and John Stones. Phil Foden shows her talent and should be one of the leading players in the future. Raheem Sterling enjoys the pitch, and when he receives the ball and moves towards the goal, the opponent has problems.
