Premier League Preview: Manchester City vs Chelsea

Premier League Preview - Manchester City vs Chelsea

Chelsea host Manchester City in the Premier League tonight and the Blues will be desperate for a win.

Frank Lampard’s men are fighting for a place in the top four and they will need to win their home games. Although this is a tough outing for them, Chelsea have the quality to pull off a win.

Manchester City have been in red hot form since the resumption of the Premier League and they will fancy their chances here. Guardiola has the better set of players and it will be interesting to see if they can continue their impressive run of form with another win here.

They managed to beat Arsenal 3-0 earlier this month and City will be full of confidence heading into the game. Meanwhile, Chelsea won 2-1 over Aston Villa and they will need to put in a better showing against a team like Manchester City.

Chelsea winning here would seal the title for Liverpool and City will want to delay Klopp’s title party. Even a draw here would hand the Reds the title.
