The Blues have lost three of their last five league games and are now down to 6th in the table.

Despite Chelsea’s poor form, Man City midfielder Bernardo Silva has been full of praise for his upcoming opponents.

Man City recently smashed Chelsea 6-0, their heaviest defeat since 1991. Although, Silva is not expecting a similar scoreline on Sunday.

“We are not expecting the same result [6-0]. We are playing against one of the best sides in the world, even though lately their results are not the best for them.

“Against those kind of players you can never relax and if you give them time, they will destroy you.”
