Man City, campaigns for top spot vs Chelsea

Manchester City continues their campaign to aim for the top spot when they go against Chelsea in this match. As Arsenal drew their match against Newcastle United, Man City remains hopeful that they can still earn that top spot. Man City are currently at the second spot of the league table with 36 points across their names. As for Chelsea, they are hoping to finally win their matches, as they failed to be as impressive in the tournament. With just 25 points, they are currently at 10th spot of the league table, and a win could put them to the eighth. This match will be on January 6, 2023, at 4:00 AM (GMT+8), with Chelsea hosting this match.

These two teams already met for 172 matches, where it was the host who have a better record here. The hosts already won 71 matches, compared to the 62 wins of the visitors, while the remaining 39 matches ended in draw. However, despite a good record, the hosts are not playing at home recently, losing their last two home games against Man City. Additionally, they also lost to their last home games in the Premier League. The visitors on the other hand have a good record against the hosts during their last few matches. From their last 10 Premier League games, the visitors have won seven of them. They are looking to win three consecutive matches against the hosts in this match.

This squad are currently at the second place of the league table, but their recent results does not look good. This team is actually the defending champions of the Premier League, even having a draw on their last game. Their 1-1 draw against Everton on their last game is actually a disappointing result. Coming into this game, they are aiming to prove that they are still as dangerous as before. Since the return of the Premier League, Man City’s performance this season have been underwhelming. With that, they are in-need of new tactics and techniques to be able to go back on their impressive run.

Erling Haaland is the one who will lead Man City for this match, as he is looking to break records through this game. The treatment room of Man City seems to be emptied soon, as they are just down with two players. Aymeric Laporte amd Ruben Dias, who have back and hamstring issues respectively remains to be out for Man City.


Premier League: Chelsea

Chelsea are currently at the 10th spot of the league table with 25 points across their name, and an additional three points will be given if they win this match. A win could help them to improve their spot in the league table, putting them at the sixth to seventh of the league table. However, on their last match, they produced a disappointing result, drawing their game against the Forest. Chelsea have their chances in this match, but they first need to feel comfortable under the management of their manager. This team surely does not want to give Man City a chance to win against them for three consecutive times.

Compared to their opponent, Chelsea’s recovery room is busier, as they are still treating their long-term absentees. N’Golo Kante, Armando Borja, and Reece James are all unavailable in this match. Additionally, Weesley Fofana is also expected not to be available for this match.
