The Premier League throws up an interesting clash this weekend in the mould of Chelsea vs Manchester City. The defending Champions have gone back to the summit of the league albeit leading Spurs with a solitary point, and they will not want to leave anything to chance against the Blues this weekend.
The hosts, Chelsea, have a sudden reawakening with a 1-4 bashing of former Table toppers and fellow Londoners, Tottenham Hotspur. That win was just what Mauricio Pochettino and his men needed to stem the run of bad results in the opening weeks of the competition.
That win has put Chelsea on a pedestal and will be in confident mood going into this match. However, the visitors will be counting on their current form and a superior head-to-head form in their last five meetings.
Manchester City are favorites to win this match, but it is better to be wary of the threat Chelsea posses especially on the break. Going by that, we want to be cautious and back City to win or have our stake returned if it ends in a draw as our main Chelsea vs Manchester City prediction.
