Preview: Man City vs Chelsea
Manchester City host Premier League leaders Chelsea on Saturday afternoon at Etihad Stadium, knowing a win can help them leapfrog the Blues in the standings.
The Citizens had a flying start to their league campaign, maintaining a perfect record until a 2-0 away defeat to Tottenham Hotspur in early October curtailed their momentum. Despite their form taking a hit, they have proved that they are still capable of producing results against top teams, as evidenced by their 3-1 drubbing of Barcelona at home.
Chelsea, on the other hand, endured a stuttering start to their campaign as the Blues struggled with a four-man rearguard; however, with Antonio Conte adopting his much-favoured three-man defence, they have turned things around to be considered credible title contenders.
