Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea remains the top favorite to win the league as they once again showed an impressive performance, beating Tottenham at home 0-3 to seal the top spot of the table so far this season. They will head to this match with a 10-game unbeaten streak, having won 8 and drawing 2 since losing to Aston Villa 2-1, which they will meet in an EFL cup this week ahead of this game.
Meanwhile, despite being unbeaten since their opening loss to Tottenham 1-0, the defending champions City once again dropped points following the goalless match against Southampton last time. They currently sit on the fifth place of the league with 10 points, 3 points behind their opponent in this match and the current leaders of the league. They have lost 2 in the last 3 away games this season.
City will be looking to avenge their Champions League final defeat but also avoid losing points to keep up in the league table, while Chelsea will try to keep the momentum and their solid form heading into this match. In the last two years, these two teams have met eight times, with each of them winning 4 games. The most recent was the Champions League finals won by Chelsea 0-1.
