Chelsea face a tough challenge on Sunday afternoon, as they are currently gearing up to take on Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.
It has been a dismal season for Chelsea, to say the least. They have gone through three head coaches, none of whom have impressed – but a win over the league leaders could put a smile back on the faces of Blues fans.
Chelsea injury news
Chelsea are set to be without Armando Broja, Reece James, N’Golo Kante, Mason Mount, Marc Cucurella, Ben Chilwell and Marcus Bettinelli. On top of this, Kalidou Koulibaly and Mateo Kovacic are also major doubts – it’s likely that they, too, will miss out on Sunday’s game.
The last time the two teams met
When the two teams last came to blows, back in January, the Citizens narrowly beat Chelsea by a score of 1-0 at Stamford Bridge. After a tense first half, Riyad Mahrez scored the only goal of the game to give Pep Guardiola’s men the three points.
