Chelsea face a daunting trip to the Etihad Stadium on Saturday evening. All eyes will be on the massive Premier League clash between Manchester City and Chelsea at City’s Etihad Stadium this Saturday evening.

We take a closer look at this clash and predict the match outcome.

Manchester City

City has been in incredible form since the return of their skipper, Kevin De Bruyne, whose seven goal contributions since returning have propelled his side to victory in every match. They are now well within reach of the top of the Premier League table, trailing leaders Liverpool by just 2 points with a game in hand.

The return of Erling Haaland among the scorers was undoubtedly a welcome sight for the Citizens just before such a significant clash, especially with the climax of their intense title race against Liverpool and Arsenal.


On the contrary, Chelsea is enduring a disastrous season, struggling to gather any momentum and find their preferred lineup. The Blues currently lie in the 10th position and have been rather inconsistent, with only 2 wins and as many defeats in their last 4 league matches. Despite the challenges they are prepared to face, the Blues will be boosted by the return of Nkunku to full fitness, who will be available to lead the attack against City. Having performed decently against the ‘top 6’ sides this season, Pochettino’s men will be hoping for the same fluidity they displayed in attack when they last faced City, playing out to a 4-4 draw at Stamford Bridge.

Overall, this sets the stage for an exciting encounter between two of England’s biggest clubs in recent history.

Prediction: City straight win. At the moment, Chelsea lacks the necessary means to manage the attacking threat posed by Man City. City netted four past Chelsea at The Bridge without Kevin De Bruyne, who has since returned and revitalized the City attack. They will simply be too much for Chelsea to handle.
