Man City vs Chelsea − Match preview
Before the season started, did anyone expect Chelsea to even be in touching distance of Man City at this point of the campaign? Lampard is doing a far better job than many anticipated and, with the club currently operating under a transfer ban, he’s working wonders with the Blues’ youngsters.
Who knew Chelsea could ever be − dare I say it? − likeable?
City aren’t exactly doing badly, but there’s no getting around the fact that being nine points behind the leaders with just 12 games played, despite having unrivalled spending power and Pep Guardiola in charge of arguably the strongest squad in world football, represents underachievement.
Back in August, Man City managed to avoid a transfer ban despite breaching similar rules to Chelsea. Guardiola’s club instead got off with a £314,500 fine.
Hopefully today’s game is a bit more exciting than the 6-0 we got at the Etihad last season.
