Manchester City vs Chelsea Preview

Manchester City vs Chelsea

Competition – Barclays Premier League

Stadium – Etihad Stadium

Date: 4th March 2018

Kick-off time – 16:00 GMT

Manchester City may have lost out of winning a quadruple this season, but the Cityzens could still end up winning a treble and that would not be bad considering that Pep Guardiola did not win a single trophy in his first season at the Etihad.

They come to this game off the back of two consecutive wins over Arsenal, one in the Carabao Cup final in Wembley and the other in a Premier League game at the Emirates.

They netted 6 goals and conceded none in those two games and this game represents another tough one for the runaway league leaders.

They remain a strong side at home, and their 5-1 thrashing of Leicester City in their last league game made it 13 straight home wins, but their last home loss came against this same visitor.

Chelsea are not expected to cause an upset in this game given that they lost to a poor Manchester United side on Sunday.

They have lost 3 of their last 4 league games and have just two wins from their last 8 away league games.

They head into this game 2 points off the top four which puts them under pressure to get a result here.

They have scored in all but two of their away league games this season, but can they outscore the league leaders here?
