Date & Time: August 25th, 2021 – 16:00 (IST)
Venue: Stamford Bridge, London
Two of the biggest sides in English football face off as Chelsea host Manchester City, in a repeat of last year’s Champions League final.
Chelsea have started the season in electric form, while defending Premier League champions City look to be still finding their feet.
It has been a period of joy for Chelsea fans, who saw their side lift the Champions League back in May and go from strength to strength under Thomas Tuchel.
The blues are in superb form in the Premier League too, with 4 wins from 5 games and they look to be brimming with confidence currently.
Defensively, they look stronger than ever with Thiago Silva, Antonio Rudiger and Marcos Alonso all performing on a regular basis.
In midfield, they are inundated with options with N’Golo Kante, Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic all in superb nick and contributing at both ends of the pitch.
The summer acquisition of Romelu Lukaku has transformed their outlook this term and they look to be a side full of goals currently.
It certainly isn’t panic stations for Manchester City just yet, with Pep Guardiola’s side proving the naysayers wrong on many an occasion over the past few seasons.
They do sit 3 points off the pace in the Premier League however and last weekend’s draw with Southampton was particularly turgid.
Ederson continues to put in some stellar performances for City while Ruben Dias and Kyle Walker are as tough to break down as ever in the back line.
Rodri will be hoping to shake off a knock to be involved here, with Ilkay Gundogan and Kevin de Bruyne creators in chief in the heart of the midfield.
Riyad Mahrez, Raheem Sterling and Jack Grealish will all be looking to provide a goal threat, in the absence of a recognised striker at City this term.
