It was disappointment for Manchester City and, to a lesser extent, Chelsea on Wednesday night when the Premier League powerhouses failed to win their opening matches of the Champions League Group Stage.
Conceding late to Bayern Munich denied City a point while Jose Mourinho’s side had to settle for a 1-1 home draw with Bundesliga strugglers, Schalke.

Chelsea will enter the match as slight favourites, having taken all 12 points possible from their first four matches but last year’s champions, City, are sure to provide strong competition despite their 5 th place status.

A win on Sunday for Mourinho’s men could see them go as far as five points ahead.

This clash between man city and Chelsea is Chelsea’s 2,000th away league game since September 1905.


Match Facts:
• Chelsea has secured  100% record in the EPL this season, winning all 4 matches played since the beginning of the campaign.
• Manchester City have only lost one and drew one of their matches this season.
• Chelsea has scored a total of 15 goals in 4 games.

    best predition i’m satisfied, but how is diago costa condition this match?

    1. Yazircfc says

      He’s fit to play and beside Mourinho said whenever he plays a game he’ll surely have a problem i.e hamstring injury. That’s why he was on bench for the schalke match.
      but am sure he’ll lead us upfront against man city.

    chealse 3- city 1

  5. Fik says

    I think this is z game not want to give a point to our 1st title contender & expecting City wl play agressively following 5 points dropped & playing in their home, Mour wl line up more defencive team. I expect z line up: Courtois, Iva, Cahill, Terry, Azep, Ramires, Mikeal, Matic, Fab, Haz, Costa. We wl play a counter attack using fast players in z 2nd half. Since Mour know City wl play attacking football and more space behind their defence, I hope fast attacker like Schurrle has to play and kill z game.

  6. Jetur McCarthy says

    The game between man city and Chelsea will end 2/1 with Chelsea carrying the day.

  11. Belmond says

    I think chelsea should start with Ramires instead of Oscar. I think Ramirez is stronger than Oscar and tomorrow’s match recquire a lot of physic.
