Shock at the top of this twenty-second day of the Premier League, this meeting between Manchester City and Chelsea will oppose the two leaders of the Premier League to date.
And if the two teams are enthroned at the top of the Premier League, this match has a lot at stake for one of the two teams. Indeed, if Chelsea still want to believe in the Premier League title, they will have to win against a Manchester City team that walks on water. Led by a Bernardo Silva at the top of his game, the Skyblues only lost only one of their last fifteen meetings, for fourteen victories ! An impressive statistic that shows the quality of the game offered by Pep Guardiola’s men this season.
Opposite, Chelsea went through a rough patch in December, chaining avoidable draws against teams in the middle of the table. Despite this, the slow pace imposed by their competitors, Liverpool in the lead, allows them to secure a comfortable lead over their competitors, but are ten points behind on Manchester City, leader. A victory on Mancunian soil is therefore an obligation for Thomas Tuchel’s men this Saturday.
The opinion of the editorial staff: 2-0
Facing a less strong Chelsea team for a few weeks, Manchester City set to come in revenge for lost Champions League final last May.

Manchester City : Ederson – Walker, Ruben Dias, Laporte, Cancelo – De Bruyne, Rodri, Gündogan – Sterling, Gabriel Jesus, Grealish
chelsea : Kepa – Rüdiger, Thiago Silva, Sarr – Azpilicueta, Kanté, Jorginho, Kovacic, Marcos Alonso – Mount, Havertz
