Easily the pick of the 26th round of the 2018/19 Premier League season, the meeting of these 2 giants of English football is as tasty as they come. Manchester City continue to score goals almost with reckless abandon but still find themselves unable to achieve consistent performances week after week. The visit of an even more topsy-turvy Chelsea side does not make this the easiest of matchups to call.
Manchester City will be fancied by many to brush past a misfiring Maurizio Sarri side. However, there is sufficient depth of talent and technical acumen on the Chelsea bench to catch the reigning English champions and punish their often-sloppy defense.
Indeed, Chelsea were comfortable 2-0 winners in the opposite fixture at Stamford Bridge but Manchester City won the identical fixture by the same scoreline last season. As a meeting featuring the most prolific attacking lineups and the meanest defences in the Premiership, it could go either way.
