Manchester City vs. Chelsea: Live Premier League report

by time news

In December Chelsea were still at the top of the Premier League and many thought that the meeting with Manchester City might be the one to decide fate, but since then the picture has changed almost completely. The two arrived today for the game at Etihad (14:30, live on Sport1) with the champion in first place and to her credit a 10-point advantage over the blues in second place.

Manchester City have certainly shifted gears in recent weeks and are with 14 wins in the last 15 games, including 11 consecutive Premier League victories, and have lost during that streak only to Leipzig in the Champions League in a protocol game. This week in the cup, City defeated Swindon Town 1: 4 and in the last round they defeated Arsenal 1: 2, a game in which they fell behind, but in extra time completed a makeover in front of 10 players from a Rodry goal. Riyad Mahraz, who is in the African Championship, was absent, but Phil Fuden returned directly to the squad after recovering from Corona, along with Jack Grilish and Raheem Sterling, who were not in the squad for the cup. John Stones, who has recovered from an injury, was also included in the 11th.

On the other hand, Chelsea after two wins in the last 10 days over Tottenham in the League Cup semi-finals, and in between they had no trouble beating Chesterfield 1: 5 and advancing to the cup, but in the league they have won only one game out of the last five , And also the second place she is in may slip out of her hands as Liverpool have less point, but also a missing game against Leeds that they have to complete. As you may recall, in the last round Liverpool and Chelsea separated by 2: 2. The severe decline in Chelsea’s ability is also due to the many injuries in the squad of Thomas Tuchel, who in addition to defenders Reese James and Ben Chillwell also lacks goalkeeper Edouard Mandy who went to the African Championship, so at the gate stands coffee. Romulo Lukaku, who did not play against Liverpool following the same interview that caused a stir, has since returned to the squad and started in the squad today, along with Hakim Zeish. Malang Sar continues at 11.

In the previous game between the two in the Premier League in September, at Stamford Bridge, Gabriel Jesus scored the only goal.
