Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City host Premier League leaders Chelsea in what is set to be a thrilling encounter at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday.
Guardiola’s men have won three of their last four league games, but haven’t won a home league game since September 24, with Everton, Southampton, and Middlesbrough all taking a point away from their trip to Eastlands.
However, City have beaten Barcelona at the Etihad in recent weeks, and will go into tomorrow’s clash full of confidence after improving performances in recent games.
Nevertheless, they will be up against the form team in England on Saturday, as Antonio Conte’s Blues head into the contest having won their last seven Premier League games, conceding just one goal in the process.
The Italian switched to a back three following their 3-0 defeat to Arsenal on September 24, and have since then lost just one game in all competitions – a 2-1 defeat at West Ham in the League Cup last month.
With the build-up will underway ahead of Saturday’s encounter, we at Shoot! have taken a look back at some of the better Man City versus Chelsea games, and this one is sure to please City fans.
Roberto Mancini’s side beat the Blues 4-2 at Stamford Bridge in February 2010, thanks to braces from Craig Bellamy and Carlos Tevez, and it ended Chelsea’s 24-match unbeaten league run at home, and turned out to be their only league defeat at the Bridge that season.
