Everything will be at stake when Chelsea face Manchester City Manchester City in the Premier League, both teams will be looking to secure all three points to boost their chances of winning the Premier League, at the moment Chelsea have the advantage as they are top of the Premier League table while Manchester City wallow in 5th position.
Going into the game the odds aren't in Manchester City's favor to win the encounter. Firstly, Pep Guardiola is yet to defeat Chelsea in the three meetings since Thomas Tuchel became Chelsea manager, secondly, Chelsea are in red hot form after winning four and drawing just one on the five EPL games they have played this season.
If Pep Guardiola wants to defeat this Chelsea team he has to deploy his strongest starting XI and also he needs to make use of three players, these players are very good and they will be a menace to the Chelsea backline, starting them will be very vital to the down fall of Chelsea.
Here are the three Man City players Chelsea defenders Should be scared of.
1. Phil Foden
The Englishman only recently returned from injury but he has been in fine form, his return will likely see Pep Guardiola switch back to the tactics where Phil Foden will be deployed as a false 9, Foden was very deadly in the role last season and his pace and trickery will make it very difficult for the likes of Azpilcueta and Thiago Silva to keep track of him.
2. Kevin De Bruyne
Another player that will be a menace to the Chelsea defence is Kevin De Bruyne, Ngolo Kante, Jorginho and Kovacic will have to keep a close eye on him to prevent him from making those defence splitting passes, also Tuchel should instruct his players to get close to the midfielder whenever he has the ball close to the Chelsea goal post so as to prevent him or make a block when he decides to let one fly.
3. Jack Grealish
Another player that will be very dangerous to Chelsea is Man City new signing Jack Grealish, the midfielder has loads of ability and he will be a big threat to the Chelsea defence, Ngolo Kante will have to work over time if Chelsea are to dominate this Man City defence.
Chelsea are in good form but special attention has to be paid to the above mentioned players else Manchester City might just steal a victory tommorow.
