Manchester City vs Chelsea Match Preview and Team News
Manchester City plays host to Chelsea at the Etihad Stadium for this third-round match in the League Cup. This tie is the pick of the fixtures for this round as the two Premier League heavyweights clash. Manchester City is coming off a tough 2-1 win over Fulham in their last match and needed a late Erling Haaland penalty to clinch the win after having a player sent off. It remains to be seen if manager Pep Guardiola rests his key players like Haaland and Kevin De Bruyne as the City team have not been as prolific in front of goal without them in the team. Jack Grealish is the engine of this team, he goes through the opponent’s defense like a fast train, has excellent ball control, and the English international can be satisfied with his performance.
Chelsea had a disappointing 1-0 home defeat against Arsenal in the London Derby. The home team is second in the league, just two points behind leaders Arsenal. They have dominated this competition in recent years, winning it five times since 2016. Chelsea will want to bounce back from their Arsenal defeat, and the best way to do that will be to knock the Premier League champions out. They are going through a lean patch at the moment as they have won just two of their last six matches across all competitions, with two draws and two losses. Chelsea has been finding goals hard to come by, scoring just five in their previous six matches. Chelsea has a good recent record at the Etihad as they have won on two of their last three visits. Hakim Ziyech plays fantastically and creates a lot of problems for the opponent’s defense. Many clubs are ready to give a fortune for the arrival of this guy. Jorginho is one of the best midfielders in the world, all praise for him.
