Manchester City vs Chelsea Team News and Preview
Man City will be looking to improve their performance from their last outing at Burnley. Kevin de Bruyne, John Stones, David Silva and Ilkay Gundogan could earn recalls to the starting line-up as Guardiola will be eyeing a much important home win against an on fire Chelsea side. The absence of Kompany may be fatal as the visitors attackers are in the mood of demolition off late. City aren’t yet that harmonious and their flaws have been exposed quite a bit time in the last few weeks, so a big test awaits for them.
Chelsea on the other side are flawless since Conte reassessed his strategies. The emergence of previously overlooked Victor Moses has boosted them, while in form Hazard and Costa have added their lethal instincts. Victory would see Chelsea win eight consecutive Premier League games for the first time since 2010. Also an unique record of Chelsea this season is they are the only team who haven’t either scored or conceeded a headed goal, one they may be looking to change in the positive side.
