Premier League Preview and Prediction: Man City vs Chelsea

Mancity vs Chelsea

Manchester City take on Chelsea on this Sunday morning at Etihad Stadium in the matchday 13 of EPL campaign. Both teams are keen to seek a win through this match whole 90 minutes.

Last season, City made easy work of Chelsea as they beat the Blues 6-0 at Etihad Stadium. But this season, they are being pushed to the limits of this campaign by Liverpool. The back-to-back Premier League champions will have to pull out all stops in order to keep hold of the trophy a third time.

City have scored 35 goals and conceded a total of 13 goals in 12 league games this season. They are 4th in the Premier League table now, a point behind the visitors.

Pep Guardiola should rotate his players in squads when they face Chelsea. Their defense isn’t too good.  The loss of energy of some players can very negative effects on team performance.

They still have an impressive forward line who should cause City problems here. Sergio Aguero and his team-mate Gabriel Jesus, and Raheem Sterling are expected to start the line up as they look for goals.

Chelsea on the other hand enter this match sitting pretty in the top four. It’s early days, of course, but Frank Lampard men are giving a steady account of themselves.

They are still very much a work in progress but to be a pragmatist their defense very good. Chelsea only have three clean sheets and in league so far against those attacking geniuses known as Newcastle Brighton and Crystal Palace.

Chelsea are in 3th in the standing now, they are 9 points adrift of the league leaders, Liverpool, but there is still plenty of games to be played. They have has scored a total of 27 goals and conceded 17 goals in 12 games so far.

Prediction: City are a huge favourite to win 2-1 over Chelsea.  They will leapfrog the visitors in the table if they take all three points.
