Manchester City face another big test to their title credentials when they visit Chelsea in this game as they look to continue their impressive run of form.

Chelsea pulled of a shocking win over Atletico Madrid in midweek.

The Blues were not given a chance ahead of that game with almost every soccer fan and analyst believing they would drop at least two points considering Atletico are Champions League Specialists but another memorable goal in the 94th minute from Mitchy Batshuayi helped the Blues become the first English team to beat the Spaniards at home and that will do their morale a world of Good as they welcome Manchester City in this game.

Alvaro Morata has settled in well as he followed his weekend hat trick with another goal against Atletico.  He will be tasked with the job of breaking this resilient City defence.

The Blues have lost just 2 of their last 6 matches against City but they have conceded 10 goals from Sergio Aguero in his last 15 games against them.

Sergio Aguero will be leading City’s attack when they face the Blues in this game.

Despite reportedly being close to joining the Blues over the summer, he has another chance to continue his good goal scoring run against them in this game.

He has already scored 6 goals in the league this season and his combination with Gabriel Jesus is proving very lethal.

City have scored in all of their nine competitive games this season and their win over Shakhtar makes it 7 wins on the bounce in all competition.

Pep Guardiola looks to have finally found the winning formula he has been looking for and he will hope his players build on their impressive start in this game.
