The big game in the Premier League this weekend takes place on Sunday, as Chelsea welcome Manchester City to Stamford Bridge. Mauricio Pochettino will be hoping that his side can kick on from their big win over Tottenham on Monday evening.
Premier League Preview
Standout Premier League action before the international break takes place at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, as Chelsea go in search of a second straight win in the league. The Blues moved into the top half of the standings on Monday evening, as they won a bonkers fixture against Tottenham Hotspur away from home.
The victory was just Chelsea’s fourth win of the season, and it ended a two-game wait for maximum points. Chelsea were playing against nine men for much of the second half, but they struggled for long periods to break down the Tottenham defence, despite the fact that they were playing an incredibly high line. However, they eventually run out easy winners following a treble from Nicolas Jackson in the final 15 minutes of the match.
Manchester City were the biggest winners in the Premier League last weekend, as they were the only side in the top five to land victory. That ensured that the club moved back to the top of the Premier League standings, and they are now a point clear of Tottenham after winning each of their previous three.
City boast both the best attacking and defensive records in the competition, and they were emphatic winners in their previous league fixture against Bournemouth. Jeremy Doku was the standout player, as he had a hand five of the six goals at the Etihad, with Bernardo Silva, Manuel Akanji, and Phil Foden all finding the back of the net.
Chelsea vs Manchester City Head to Head
City’s Premier League record against Chelsea is very dominant, as they have won each of the last four meetings between the sides. That includes 1-0 victories in all successes that they have achieved. Chelsea’s last home win against City was recorded with a 2-1 success in June 2020.
Chelsea vs Manchester City Prediction
City have enjoyed their recent trips to Stamford Bridge, as they have lost just once in their previous four visits. Chelsea may have landed maximum points against Spurs, but they still looked short of quality in the final third. Therefore, we struggle to overlook a City win at Stamford Bridge this weekend.
