Chelsea fans here in the Transfer Tavern will be excited to get back to Premier League football this weekend after their dramatic midweek Champions League win.
The Blues will come up against an in-form and free-scoring Manchester City, side who currently top the table as the Pep Guardiola revolution enters its second phase.
Spurred on by the midweek last-gasp win in the Spanish capital, some of our punters here believe that this is a match not to be missed. Antonio Conte’s side are currently on a five-match unbeaten run and new striker Alvaro Morata is in red-hot, goal-getting form for his new employers.
An early season top the table clash usually doesn’t directly affect the end of season’s standings but Conte’s men will be looking to get a psychological edge on their opponents, as they did last season.
Man City have yet to be found out at the back yet with their own defensive frailties and this confident Chelsea team will be looking to take any opportunity given.
Our landlord believes one slice of luck can throw this match the Blue’s way with this starting eleven.
