After fears of COVID-19 in the Manchester City camp, Pep Guardiola’s team are now fully ready and they will be traveling to London to face Chelsea at the Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
In 46 Premier League meetings between these two teams, Chelsea have won 26 games, while Manchester City have won 13 matches, with the other 7 games ending in a draw. Their last 5 encounters have ended in home wins for the hosts.
Chelsea will be without Reece James, Hakim Ziyech, and Marco van Ginkel due to injury. Manchester City, on the other hand, will be without Ilkay Gündogan and Eric García due to injury, while Kyle Walker and Gabriel Jesus will miss out after a positive COVID-19 test.
Frank Lampard’s charge are on a poor run of form, with just 1 win in their last 5 matches, and fans are now complaining about their tactics of the gaffer, but the Cityzens look to be hitting their form steadily, with brilliant defensive resilience. This looks like a match Pep Guardiola’s men will edge after 90 minutes.
You can catch the game live on DSTV channel 203, SuperSport Premier League on Sunday, January 3 2021, by 5:30 pm Naija time.
