Premier League action returns to our screens following the excitement and drama of a midweek following the UEFA Champions League, Europa League and Conference League on the continent. Did you enjoy the games? We’re delighted to report there’s much more to get excited about this weekend from the top tier of English football, with Saturday’s schedule bringing an interesting seven-game programme.

The schedule begins on Saturday at 12:30 GMT when Brentford host current league leaders Liverpool in London. The locals aim to cause an upset and keep the title race competitive and although we expect an exciting game in Brentford, we look beyond this fixture to the early evening kick-off. Last season’s treble winners Manchester City enjoys home advantage at the Etihad Stadium when they welcome Londoners Chelsea in a match you can follow on television and the best live-streaming apps.

Man City in the hunt

Manchester City won the Premier League title again last season when making it three championships on the bounce since wrestling the gong back from short-term leaseholders Liverpool who won in 2020. Pep Guardiola’s men also won the Champions League last season and will want to prove they are the best team in England by making it four in a row. There’s still all to play for and although Man City is currently in second place in the league, they remain firm favourites with the most respected pundits.

We last saw Pep’s men in EPL action last Saturday when beating Everton 2-0 at this venue before the live TV cameras. It was a game City was expected to win, but they made heavy weather of a game that should’ve been out of sight much earlier than it was. It took the victors until the 71st minute to get a shot on target and a goal, with Haaland scoring a brace, netting the second with 85 minutes on the clock. Job done, but it was far from convincing from the champions.

Feeling blue in the bottom half

Premier League fans, traders, and pundits held high hopes for Chelsea this season after watching the Londoners spend big in the summer transfer window. Chelsea’s squad is packed tight with talent, but the big names from across Planet Football haven’t been firing at Stamford Bridge, and despite an earth-shattering monthly wage bill, Chelsea is down in the bottom half of the Premier League. It’s been a difficult few seasons for the club, and it looks like fans could be in for another rough ride in 2024.

Chelsea doesn’t have too much to aim at in the remainder of the calendar. They start this game down in 11th place with their season stats showing nine wins, four draws and ten defeats, scoring 38 goals but conceding 39. They have won three and lost two of their previous five league games but those losses did came in their two most recent games. Will they snap that losing streak at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday evening before the eyes of the watching world? That’s much easier said than done.

Man City vs Chelsea prediction

Here we have two of the most famous teams in the English Premier League and recent winners of the UEFA Champions League. Under normal circumstances, Man City vs Chelsea at the Etihad Stadium would promise fans a competitive game and a 50/50 contest, but this isn’t a usual season for the visitors. Chelsea’s problems run much deeper than most know, and their road to recovery is long and arduous.

Man City isn’t yet at the top of the league, and they still must reel in current pace-setters Liverpool if they are to regain the title. But they are headed in the right direction and are on an eye-catching winning streak. If Man City plays at its best, it should be good enough to take all three points and inflict a third defeat on the visitors in three games.
