Chelsea are in a poor run of form, with just one win in their last six matches. That said, they won’t be pushovers at home. Frank Lampard’s side are unbeaten in 11 matches at Stamford Bridge.

Man City are seven points behind Liverpool, although they do have a couple of games in hand over the league leaders.

City may have a slight advantage in that they have not played since Boxing Day – although they will be without a number of players due to Covid-19.

Chelsea vs Manchester City: Recommended bets

Chelsea vs Manchester City: Premier League preview

Chelsea host Manchester City at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Man City’s match against Everton last week was called off due to an outbreak of Covid-19 in Pep Guardiola’s squad. They have won their last three matches in all competitions and are unbeaten in 10.

City are 7th in the league, level on 26 points with Aston Villa, Chelsea, Spurs, and Southampton. City have only played 14 matches, however, and would be close to the top if they won their games in hand

City’s most recent game was a 2-0 home win over Newcastle United. Ilkay Gundogan and Ferran Torres scored a goal in each half.

Chelsea were held to a 1-1 draw at home to Aston Villa, two days after their 3-1 defeat at the Emirates. Olivier Giroud had given Chelsea the lead but the in-form Ahmed El Ghazi secured a point for Villa.

Despite their poor run of form, Chelsea still have the 2nd-best home record in the league. The Blues have won four, drawn three, and lost one of their eight matches at the Bridge. They’ve scored 18 goals and conceded eight.

Man City’s away form ranks 7th in the league, although they’ve only lost one match on the road. City also have the second-best away defensive record (five goals conceded).

Chelsea and Man City only faced each other once in 2020. Chelsea won the game 2-1 at Stamford Bridge in June. Christian Pulisic gave Chelsea a 1-0 lead going into halftime but Kevin de Bruyne put the visitors on level terms after the break. Fernandinho was sent off for a foul in the box, and Willian converted the resulting penalty.

These two sides have played each other 46 times in the Premier League. Chelsea have won exactly twice as many of those games (26) than Chelsea (13).

Chelsea team news vs Manchester City

Reece James is a major doubt for Chelsea with a tight hamstring, meaning Cesar Azpilicueta could continue at right-back.

Speaking about Hakim Ziyech in his pre-match press conference, Frank Lampard said “there is a possibility he could be fit for Sunday… but he is certainly progressing to the point where he is very close”.

Kurt Zouma and Thiago Silva were both rested against Aston Villa and at least one of them should be handed a recall in defence.

Tammy Abraham and Timo Werner could also come in for Christian Pulisic and Olivier Giroud in Chelsea’s front three.

Manchester City team news vs Chelsea

A Covid-19 outbreak in the Manchester City squad means that Gabriel Jesus, Kyle Walker and Ederson are all unavailable. It’s possible that more City players have since tested positive.

Zack Steffen will start in goal to make his full Premier League debut, while Joao Cancelo should keep his place at right-back.

Ilkay Gundogan was a doubt for the postponed match against Everton but is expected to be okay for Sunday.

Sergio Aguero and Riyad Mahrez could be recalled to the starting eleven.

Eric Garcia is a fitness doubt. In any case, the Man City defender has reportedly agreed personal terms with Barcelona and does not appear to be part of Pep Guardiola’s plans.

Kevin de Bruyne is set start against his former club. Nathan Ake is also in contention to face his old employers but his place in the starting eleven is less certain.
