Manchester City vs Chelsea preview

Manchester City are continuing to tighten their grip on the Premier League title after each week, having won four of their last five fixtures at a canter.

The Premier League leaders currently hold a 16 point advantage over second-placed Manchester United, leaving City within just five wins of clinching the title.

Following defeat at Old Trafford last week, Chelsea dropped out of the top four as they were finally punished for their poor run of form.

Chelsea have lost three of their last four Premier League fixtures, with worrying defeats against the likes of Bournemouth, Watford and Man United putting manager Antonio Conte under immense pressure.

Premier League focus: Conte under pressure

With the top four having slipped through their hands last week, the Italian has a job on his hands keeping Chelsea in touch with their rivals.

As the likes of Liverpool and Tottenham are both beginning to hit top form, the Blues are doing the opposite. A gap is growing between Chelsea and Jurgen Klopp’s side, while worry at Stamford Bridge is starting to creep in.

Just 12 months earlier, Conte had his side cruising towards the Premier League title. This season it’s been a different story, but also an all too similar one at Chelsea.

Yet another successful manager is seemingly beginning to lose the dressing-room and the backing of the club’s hierarchy, with Roman Abramovich yet again struggling to find stability at the Bridge.

With just ten games remaining in the season, the former Juventus manager must identify a plan of how he will guide his side back into a Champions League qualifying spot starting in Manchester on Sunday.
