Manchester City, the English Premier League defending champions will travel to Stamford Bridge on Saturday to take on the Champions of Europe and potential Premier league contenders, Chelsea in a highly anticipated game that could decide if Chelsea are really title contenders this season.


Ahead of the match there are 2 major factors I will be sharing with you in this article that would prove to you that Pep Guardiola's Manchester City would lose that match on Saturday.

Manchester City are without John Stones, Aymeric Laporte, Oleks Zinchenko, Rodri, and Gundogan due to injuries. These five important players are vital to Manchester City's success, and their absence will be felt across the squad on Saturday.

Guardiola will have to rely on Nathan Ake to partner Ruben Dias in the center of defense against Chelsea due to the injuries to Laporte and Stones. When called upon, Nathan Ake has struggled, as seen by his blunder in the community shield game against Leicester City, which cost them the title.

Meanwhile, due to Zinchenko's calf injury, Kyle Walker and Joao Cancelo are Manchester City's only two senior full-backs.


#2. Thomas Tuchel's Impressive Record against Manchester City

Thomas Tuchel has an outstanding record against Pep Guardiola's Manchester City since becoming Chelsea's coach, having defeated them in three separate tournaments, one of them being the renowned European competition, the UEFA Champions League.

That would be a psychological advantage for the blues heading into the game and in addition to that, Chelsea have been in an impressive form this season, conceding only one goal and that was away to Liverpool in match where they had a red card and had to play the second half with just ten men.


With the factors mentioned above, do you think Chelsea would win this match on Saturday and cement their position as one of the top contenders for the English Premier league title?.
