Head to Head


Chelsea and Manchester City have each won 68 times in this fixture. There have also been 39 draws played out.

Chelsea won the most recent meeting between the sides 2-1 back in June.

Chelsea Form


Chelsea have slipped out of the Champions League places in the Premier League to 6th after a below par run of form.

Frank Lampard’s side have particularly struggled away from home, losing to Everton, Wolves and Arsenal in their last three road matches. At home, they have drawn two of their last four, including a 1-1 stalemate with Aston Villa last time out.

Chelsea had taken the lead through Olivier Giroud but were pegged back by Anwar El Ghazi’s equaliser for Aston Villa.

Manchester City Form


Manchester City haven’t always shown the form of title contenders this season, despite winning back-to-back games before this contest.

Pep Guardiola’s side had drawn successive matches against Manchester United and West Brom before beating Southampton 1-0 away from home. 

Following their fixture postponement with Everton, Manchester City’s most recent fixture remains the 2-0 win over Newcastle. City’s victory came courtesy of goals from Ilkay Gundogan and Ferran Torres.

Team News


Chelsea look set to be without defender Reece James and winger Hakim Ziyech for this fixture. Olivier Giroud looks set to keep his place in attack after scoring against Aston Villa, likely leaving the misfiring Timo Werner on the bench once again.

Manchester City’s list of absentees includes Ederson, Kyle Walker, Eric Garcia, Ilkay Gundogan and Gabriel Jesus.
