Man City vs Chelsea: 3 reasons why Frank Lampard’s side will win at the Etihad this weekend. Chelsea were handed a 6-0 defeat on their last trip.
We’re almost at the end of November, 12 matches down and Chelsea are above Manchester City in the points table. Albeit by a solitary one yet no one saw this coming. However, Manchester City could overtake the blues with a win today.
In the last decade, Chelsea have made the trip to Etihad 10 times. They have lost 7 times and drawn once. They have only managed to topple City twice and the last time that happened was during the 2016/17 season.
In their 10 matches at the Eithad, Chelsea have only found the net 7 times in contrast to Manchester City’s 19. City have also kept 6 clean sheets in the 10 matches. What we can gather from this is that Man City vs Chelsea at the Etihad has most times been a one-sided affair.
It’s 4️⃣th 🆚 3️⃣rd in the #PL 😋

However, this is the Premier League. Anything can happen on any given day. Remember Norwich and Wolverhampton beating City earlier? Let us look at 3 reasons why Frank Lampard’s side can emulate the two teams.
Chelsea’s winning streak
The world’s obsession with Manchester City and Liverpool has allowed Frank Lampard’s side to go on about their business rather quietly. While the media has sang love songs about Lampard’s young side, the kind of dominance the side has shown has often been ignored.
The Blues had a slow start to the season. However, they are yet to lose a match in the Premier League since their loss to Liverpool at Stamford Bridge and even that was a close encounter. Lampard and his men have since stitched 6 consecutive victories and will look to add to that when they take on City at the Etihad.
Manchester City on the other hand, are coming off a loss to Liverpool in their last match. in fact, Pep Guardiola’s squad, considered the most complete in the world, has lost twice in their last 5 matches in the Premier League. This is proof that the once feared side is not as invincible as was once thought.
