Man City – Chelsea
It’s time once again for a great derby in the English Premier League. The current leader and a number one contender for the title Manchester City is hosting the champion Chelsea in a game from the 29th round of the league. The match is going to be played at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday night.
Few people are doubting anymore that Manchester City are going to win the league. Pep Guardiola’s team is leading the table with 75 points and 15 points advantage in front of the 2nd Liverpool. Manchester City’s record this season is truly impressive – 24 wins, 3 draws and just one loss – against Liverpool at the Anfield.
Last weekend Man City won their first trophy for the season, crushing Arsenal for the Carabao Cup at the Wembley. This win was followed by another one against the same opponent at the Emirates. In these two matches Man City scored six goals and didn’t concede even one.
Now the champions are coming to Manchester.
It has not been the best season for Chelsea. After dominating the Premier League last season, things quickly changed for Antonio Conte’s team. Right now Chelsea are 5th in the league standings, being on 22 points behind the leader. And this is a serious distance.
Chelsea made too many mistakes since the beginning of the season. Right now they are on 5 points behind the 4th Tottenham, so it’s not really sure if they are going to participate in the next edition of the Champions League. For them there’s a real danger of missing it.
In their last five games Chelsea won just twice, suffering three defeats as well – against Bournemouth, Watford and Manchester United.
