The match between Chelsea and Manchester City will be an exciting encounter as the Blues host the Cityzens at Stamford Bridge.
The two sides tie in points, but the cytizens have two matches in hand to play. Man City have shown good performances racking up 26 points in 14 games.
The blues have so far not performed to peoples expectations despite spending heavily in the Summer Transfer Window. The management expects Lampard to deliver following the big spending.
Chelsea and Lampard are under scrutiny following their inconsistencies, after losing three PL games last month against Arsenal, Everton and Wolves.
The postponement of Manchester City’s game against Everton was due to some of their players contracting Covid-19. The club has been much affected by the pandemic.
Manchester City and Chelsea still in the title race
The two are seven points behind the reigning champions, Liverpool, therefore, it is early to rule them out of the title race. Of the two, Man City are in the better position since they have two games in hand and are therefore likely to compete Man Utd and Liverpool who are on top of the Premier League table.
The Blues have been inconsistent in the recent weeks but are likely to display a good fight against the Cityzens. Chelsea have had a poor record against the top six clubs in the Premier League. They will, therefore, not find it easy against Man City.
