Manchester City Vs Chelsea Today

An age seems to have passed since Manchester City hammered Chelsea 3-0 in the corresponding fixture last season that featured John Terry being hauled off at half-time and which came in the wake of José Mourinho’s dispute with club doctor, Eva Carneiro. While that defeat proved an omen of the demise of Mourinho and his champions, Chelsea arrive as leaders and a point better off than City, which means a draw would be a fine result for them. Expect both teams, though, to go for what would be a statement victory. Jamie Jackson
