Chelsea v Manchester City – Premier League
It’s a new year and Chelsea are aiming to lay down a marker for a successful 2021.
We entertain perennial challengers Manchester City at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League on Sunday – one of the toughest games we could have been given to kick off January.
The Citizens will be motivated to beat us, as it was our thrilling 2–1 victory in June that ended their defense of their league title and handed Liverpool the crown. It will take a supreme effort from Frank Lampard and team for us to repeat the feat.
The visitors have steamrolled many rivals in recent seasons. In 2019, they became the first English club to win the domestic treble (the EPL, the FA Cup and the Carabao Cup), and they have lifted the league title twice in the last three years.
Tune in Sunday to cheer on the Blues!
