The big game of the Premier League is the one to kick off the weekend in the top flight. This is Manchester City v Chelsea and it is a game which has a huge bearing on the title race going into the tail end of the year. This may be the one which settles who will finish top of the pile at Christmas. Will it be Chelsea or will the Citizens be able to take advantage of home soil and leapfrog the Blues?
Chelsea are top of the league going into the game with a one point advantage over the Citizens. That is thanks to their massive seven match winning streak that they are on at the moment. After beating London rivals Spurs last weekend, the Blues look unstoppable at the moment and with their defence having shipped only one goal in their last seven and with Eden Hazard and Diego Costa bang on form, they will put their title credentials to the test.
Manchester City are unbeaten at home this season, but the Citizens have slipped to three consecutive 1-1 draws on home soil in the league and that will only serve to give Chelsea confidence. But Manchester City are the ones who are under the most pressure in this one and this is where Guardiola’s men have to raise their game and take on the challenge of this massive contest.
It is the big battle of Sergio Aguero and Diego Costa too, who have both been in tremendous form this season. Both are sitting level on ten goals each in the top flight this season so who will win that particular battle on the day. Aguero is unplayable on his day, but Costa has been leading the line so well for Chelsea this season and brings the rest of his attacking players into the game brilliantly. A massive game between the two blues. Can Chelsea pull out a four point lead or will Manchester City regain supremacy at the top fo the pile?
