Chelsea host Manchester City in what is going to be one of the most exciting games of the week. Will City continue to perform as they did against Burnley, or will Chelsea come through a tight encounter?
Chelsea were not playing their best in the first half of their first game back against Aston Villa on the weekend. Chelsea went 1-0 down to Aston Villa, and it did not seem as if they would take advantage of the weakness in the Villa side. However, in the second half, the story changed. Chelsea were much more composed, and with nearly 75% possession, Chelsea scored 2 quick goals to take home the win. Chelsea are looking to maintain their Champions League spot and they are 5 points clear of Manchester United who are sat in 5th place. Chelsea's only goal this season is to maintain their Champions League spot, and in my opinion they will be very dangerous next season.
Manchester City were absolutely amazing against Burnley, defeating them 5-0. Burnley were not in their best form as they were missing many key players, however, this does not take away from the City performance. Phil Foden was absolutely incredible and showed us that he is going to be a main player in the Manchester City team. Although Manchester City know they will not win the league this year, and they are not fighting for a Champions League spot as they are banned, they are still playing their best. City are trying to figure out how they can attack the best teams and win big matches in order to prepare themselves for next season.
The reverse fixture of this match went the way of Manchester City, with a 2-1 victory at the Etihad Stadium. Both these teams are not as worried as positions on the table and this is going to be a very exciting and free-flowing game in my opinion. I think this is going to either be a 2-1 or 3-1 Manchester City victory. The game will also see many goals, and therefore I am taking Manchester City and over 2.5 goals.
