Sorare Premier League

Sorare Premier League football preview: Manchester City vs Chelsea


Manchester City could have already won the Premier League and be well on their way to a famous treble by the time they face Chelsea on Sunday.

Should Arsenal lose to Nottingham Forest on Saturday the title would be City’s, but they can make sure of it with three points of their own against suffering Chelsea at the Etihad, four days after booking a Champions League final spot.

The game will be part of Gameweek 373 on Sorare Football, and 101 Great Goals has broken down the key statistical takeaways ahead of the game.

Riyad Mahrez

Mahrez has been Mr Reliable for Pep Guardiola with his side competing on multiple fronts. While he generally doesn’t make it onto the pitch in the Champions League matches, Mahrez is relied upon to deliver in crucial Premier League matches, and more of than not, he delivers. In the four games either side of the Champions League semi-final first leg, he average 82 points per game and has a superb score of 60 over his last 40 (L40) matches (though he did come on briefly in the second leg to register a low score we are not taking into account).

Julian Alvarez

He has only made 26 appearances for Manchester City this season, but Alvarez has still made a serious impression at the Etihad. Competing with Erling Haaland for a place in the side is an unenviable task for anyone, but Alvarez has still managed 18 goals in all competitions and been a regular in the run-in. The goals have dried up a little after dropping into a deeper role as squad rotation takes its toll on the squad, but he will be a regular in the games to come and is a threat against anyone.

Phil Foden

It was a frustrating start to 2023 for Foden after a bout of appendicitis ruled him out of a spell, but he has returned to the side seamlessly and is another who is likely to slot straight into the side after Champions League rotation. His scores this season have not been stunning with an L40 of 46 and an L5 of 45, but scores of 63 and 60 in recent matches are indicative of his potential.

Three Chelsea Sorare gems to watch

Conor Gallagher

There have not been many beneficiaries of Frank Lampard’s second spell as Chelsea manager, but Gallagher is one of them. Six of his 15 league starts this season have come in the eight matches Lampard has been in charge of, though he has scored just one goal. There have been some good scores interspersed with the average ones however - he has an 82 and a 77 in his last six matches - so could be a valuable player to keep an eye on, especially against City where his industry and energy will be vital.

Raheem Sterling

Sterling has had a tricky start to life at Chelsea after a summer move from his next opponents, Manchester City. The goals have been hard to come by, there have been personal issues and he has had to contend with three different managers and philosophies this season. He has become a favourite once more however, with Lampard favouring players he knows and trusts and two goals against Nottingham Forest last week and a score of 87 suggest a player starting to find his feet in Chelsea blue.

Noni Madueke

The tricky wide man has been absent with injury in recent weeks, resulting in a lower L5 score than he would usually have got. However he is on the comeback trail and in previous years has caused Leeds all sorts of problems. The Whites struggle across the backline, but Luke Ayling and Rasmus Kristensen have in particular failed to cope under pressure at right-back so if he is fit enough to start, it could be a long day on that flank.
