Manchester City – Chelsea
Manchester City hosts Chelsea in the big derby of the 29th round of the English Premier League. The game is going to be played at Sunday evening at the Ettihad Stadium in Manchester.
This season is just brilliant for Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City. The Citizens are marching on towards the title, having a healthy 16 points advantage in front of Manchester United. They have an impressive record of 24 wins, 3 draws and just one loss – against Liverpool at the Anfield.
Manchester City are impressing with the football they are playing. They have scored 82 goals in 28 games so far, conceding just 20. After a difficult first season in England, Josep Guardiola is finally making Manchester City play in the way he wants. The team already won its first trophy for the season as well, triumphing in the Carabao Cup.
As it looks now, this team of Manchester City could be one of the most impressive champions in the history of the Premier League. Especially if they finish the season in the same way they are performing at the moment.
Now Chelsea are coming to the Etihad. The current champions are 5th in the Premier League standings, so this is not really their best season in the last few years. The Blues are currently on two points behind the 4th Tottenham, so they need to win as much points as possible, if they want to return to the Champions League next season.
Right now Chelsea have a record of 16 wins, 5 draws and 7 defeats. They are not in their best shape at the moment, which is proven by their results in the last five matches – two wins and three defeats, including against Manchester United in the last round. Everyone thinks that Antonio Conte will leave the club after the end of the campaign, so he’d like to do it in the best way possible.
