You’ve got to love the Premier League fixture list haven’t you.
Just two weeks into the new 2015/16 season and this Sunday see’s both last season’s champions and runners-up face off against one another at Etihad Stadium as Manchester City play Chelsea.
Now an incredibly important fixture for both club’s given they’re still considered quite some way in front of the rest of the pack, the ‘cash of the clash’ as it’s often billed will be just as intiguing this time around with the likes of Raheem Sterling now on bard with the Citizens, not to mention Chelsea being Eva Carneiro-less on Sunday.
Last term, the two fixtures were dominated by that Frank Lampard goal that he struck against the club he served with such distinction in the first fixture at Etihad Stadium before another awfully tight draw was played out at Stamford Bridge later in the season.
We expect it to be tight this time around, especially considering Jose Mourinho’s smashing record in games against Premier League title rivals.
That said, you do feel as if Chelsea need to win the fixture with the Blues not only having uncharacteristically failed to win a game in a little while, not to mention the fact that bad press has circled around the club this week with Mourinho’s banishment of club doctors Eva Carneiro and Jon Fearn.
This is why we’ve devised five reasons why Chelsea must simply grab three points at a difficult venue in Manchester City away on Sunday.
