Chelsea vs Manchester City Match Preview and Team News
Chelsea sits on the 4th position on the table, and if they manage to keep this place, they will clinch the Champions League spot for the next season. The Blues managed to come back after being down 1:0 at half time against Aston Villa and book significant victory. Although they are doing well when playing away from home, the hosts spilled too many points at Stamford Bridge. They have suffered five defeats in front of their crowd, and they need improved performances when playing at home. Chelsea plays attractive football, creates a lot of problems for the opponent, and they should not give up on that style. Christian Pulisic finally shows why he was brought in as a big signing. In the match with Aston Villa, he entered the game in the second half and scored a goal worth golden points. The American can play in several positions, and it suits him best when he plays on the left-wing. It is his natural position, and he could be the key player in the next matches. Jorginho is returning after suspension and could play in the starting lineup. Fikayo Tomori and midfielder Callum Hudson-Odoi missed the last game due to minor injuries and should be ready for the derby match.
Manchester City is currently 2nd in the table, and it is a pity that they had a drop in form and lost a lot of points. They managed to beat Burnley 5-0 and played phenomenally. Pep Guardiola can be satisfied, and he rested some players for the next matches. They are firm in defense and fight for every ball, which brought the result, as in two games, they did not allow the opponent to score a goal. They scored eight goals in the last two occasions, and it will be difficult for any opposing team if they are in this mood. Riyad Mahrez enjoys being on the pitch, and when he receives the ball and goes to the goal, the opponent has problems because he passes through the defense like a fast train. Gabriel Jesus is waiting for his first goal after the break, and Pep Guardiola’s favorite player is looking for his recognizable form. The Spaniard is doing a great job beside the touchline, as their fans can see the progress in the game. The motivation grows in every game, and he can be satisfied and proud of his guys.
