Chelsea Vs Man City (Premier League) Pre-Match Report
Chelsea will host Manchester City at Stamford Bridge in a highly anticipated Premier League matchup. Both teams are hoping to bounce back after recent setbacks: Chelsea have won just one of their last seven games, while Manchester City were held to a disappointing draw against Everton on New Year’s Eve.
Chelsea, led by manager Graham Potter, have struggled to find their footing this season and currently sit outside the top four. They have struggled to create scoring opportunities and have been linked with big-money signings as they search for solutions. Manchester City, on the other hand, have looked disjointed at times this season despite the continued goal-scoring form of Erling Haaland. They will be hoping to get back to their best and close the gap on league-leaders Arsenal with a win over Chelsea.
In terms of player form, Chelsea’s Kepa and Jorginho have been performing well, with Christian Pulisic also impressing. For Manchester City, Haaland and Kevin de Bruyne have stood out.
Both teams have a number of players out with injury, including N’Golo Kante and Reece James for Chelsea and Ruben Dias and Aymeric Laporte for Manchester City. Potential lineups for the match include:
Chelsea: Kepa; Azpilicueta, Thiago Silva, Koulibaly, Cucurella; Zakaria, Kovasic, Pulisic, Ziyech, Sterling, Havertz
Manchester City: Ederson; Walker, Stones, Ake, Cancelo; Rodrigo, De Bruyne, Gundogan, Bernardo, Haaland, Foden
Kickoff for the match is at 3pm ET and it can be streamed on Peacock Premium. Don’t miss this exciting matchup between two Premier League heavyweights as they look to get back on track.
