Manchester City and Chelsea will be going head-to-head on Sunday in the Premier League, so brace yourselves for a huge game. However, Chelsea great Frank Lampard will be playing for the other team which will be a bit of a shock to the system.
Man City are coming off the back of a 1-0 defeat to Bayern Munich in their first Champions League group game and Chelsea’s home draw to Schalke put an end to their great start to the season.
Although it’s still the early stages of the 2014/15 EPL season, it’s a very important game for both sides. Chelsea already have a five-point advantage over the defending Premier League champions who will no doubt be looking to bridge that gap.
Chelsea’s new signing Diego Costa has already managed to score a remarkable seven goals in the first four games. The impact of Fabregas also can’t be underestimated either, he has provided six assists so far this season.
The Blues will have to be pretty confident going into this game. Not only are they sitting on top of the table they beat Manchester City both at home and away last season. It was disappointing results in games they were expected to win that cost ended up costing them, and with their new signings you have to say they are an improved side over last year for sure.
A big part of what will go into deciding this game is Man City’s ability to stop Costa. They would also have to be slightly worried about the form of Yaya Toure who must be said looked fairly ordinary against Bayern, which is surprising considering he is one of the main reasons for Man City’s success over the last few years.
Even though it’s a home game for Manchester City we see Chelsea getting the better of City on Sunday. You can get odds of 21/10 for the Blues to win the game at Bet365.
