Where: Stamford Bridge, London, EnglandWhen: Sunday, November 12, 5:30 pm CET
The game of the week takes place at Stamford Bridge, where Chelsea hosts Manchester City. For many, this will be the biggest game of the week in Europe. Chelsea looks for consistency, and there wouldn’t be a better way to gain some than to beat the Treble winners and finally move up the ladder in the standings. On the other hand, City used Tottenham’s loss last Monday (vs. Chelsea) to take over the top spot in the standings. A win here would most definitely make their position more than comfortable.
Chelsea vs. Manchester City Preview
The Blues were better than Tottenham on the road, 1-4, in a roller coaster game that saw two Spurs players being sent off. Chelsea used that “convenience” to break the hosts with a couple of late goals and post a big win.
Nicolas Jackson netted a hat-trick. All his goals came in the final 15 minutes, and he was the one who sealed Tottenham’s destiny on Monday night. Mauricio Pochettino needs to have Jackson at his highest level of performance before this clash.
What is interesting is that following a period of inefficient contests, Chelsea’s most recent meetings are filled with goals. Three of the past five were with four or more hits, and in four sessions during this span, the Blues have scored at least twice.
The Citizens are accelerating, and the recent results are suggesting that. A 6-0 win over Bournemouth and, prior to that event, a 0-3 victory over Manchester United were more than impressive. We need to add that City previously had wins over Young Boys and Brighton.
All in all, in these four meetings, Guardiola’s crew scored 14 goals, allowing only two of them. Now, that is a sign of good form and excellent level of play.
City posted mixed results on the road this season, having six wins and three losses, but now has back-to-back victories away from the Etihad, one over Young Boys in Switzerland and the other at Old Trafford.

The Citizens are a nightmare for Chelsea in recent times, with them winning six straight against the club from Stamford Bridge. To make it even worse for the Blues, they haven’t scored a single goal during that span, allowing 10.
Chelsea vs. Manchester City Predictions
City is a favorite here, but we won’t bet on their victory. Chelsea’s attack is in solid form, and we think that the Blues can net at least once. Meanwhile, we all know how powerful City’s attack is. Haaland is back in his usual rhythm, and they should score as well. Therefore, both teams to hit the back of the rival’s net is the first pick here.
Our verdict: Both teams to score
