Manchester City vs Chelsea Match Preview

Manchester City and Chelsea play for a spot in the FA Cup final this Saturday. The two Premier League games this season ended in a draw, but gave the audience a great show that will be expected again this time.

Manchester City will travel to Wembley with mixed emotions. Last weekend they capitalized on Liverpool’s and Arsenal’s defeats and took the lead of the Premier League. They now have a two-point lead with just six games to play and if there is one thing we learned in the last years is that the Citizens do not leave points on the way in the final run-in.

However, this Wednesday, they took an exhausting and crushing elimination against Real Madrid in the UCL quarterfinals. City trailed Los Blancos from the 12th minute until Kevin De Bruyne leveled the score past the hour mark. The draw stood for the remaining of the 90 minutes and all through the extra time taking the game to the penalty spot. Antonio Rüdiger scored the final penalty to give Real Madrid the win and left Manchester City no chance of a repeat in Europe.

Chelsea, on the other hand, arrives at the game in their best form of the season – a 6-0 win over Everton last Monday. They are currently on eight consecutive games without defeat, a clear demonstration that they have overcome their irregularities, letting them back in the fight for European football.

In recent years, Manchester City has been an especially hard opponent for the Blues. They have not won a game against them in their last eight encounters with a pair of draws and six losses. A stat that always brings a nice memory for all the Chelsea fans since their last win came in the 2020/21 UCL final.
