The English Premier League will start with Matchday 16 this weekend and it will give its fans a lot of entertainment as big clubs will clash against each other. The defending Champions will visit West London to play their sixteenth game.
It would be a massive clash between the blues and the sky-blues meeting for the 161st time, as both the teams are in the top 4 of the table. City is leading the table with 41 points, 10 ahead of the 4th placed Chelsea.
After two losses in their last three encounters, Chelsea will be hunting for a win against City at Stamford Bridge. They lost to Wolves by 2-1 and before that against Tottenham by 3-1. Pep Guardiola’s boys are unbeaten in the league as they look indomitable in the league.
City’s midfielder Kevin De Bruyne will be continuing to miss another match due to a knee injury,
also, Argentine striker Sergio Aguero is likely to miss the match as he suffered a muscle injury in a training session on Monday.
According to Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri, left-back Marcos Alonso and mid-fielder Kovacic who were struggling with fitness after the win over Fulham are likely to miss.
Manchester City hasn’t lost in their last 14 away games in Premier League and will fight against the blues to make it 15.
The last meeting between these two sides was in the Community Shield where City defeated them by 2-0 and they have won their last 4 games against Chelsea.
We predict that Manchester City will continue their dominance in the league and it would be a very tough game to watch out. Chelsea will have to score early goals to put pressure on the opponents.
