Chelsea comes into this match having drawn 1-1 against Nottingham Forest for round 18. Although the Blues were vastly superior, they were unable to beat the home side and left with just one point to London. For this reason, now that they will play at home, they are obliged to add three.
Those led by Graham Potter are suffering from many defensive problems at key moments of the matches, which is why they fail to round off good performances. This has also led them to not be able to fight in the top positions, being relegated to mid-table and out-of-qualifying positions in international tournaments.
On the difficulty of facing the Citizens, Potter said: “So much happened in those 15 games and I’ve only been here for four months, and it feels more than that if I’m honest. It’s a season that’s obviously unique. We see Manchester City as an opportunity to play against one of the best teams in the world. It will be a different game than the one we faced [on New Year’s Day in Forest] but it will be complicated and tough,” he said.
“You need those games [like Forest], and you need these too. As much as we want to win, and I don’t want to sound like it’s acceptable to lose; It’s not, but unfortunately part of the game is losing points, not succeeding. You have to suffer and improve. When I think about how I got to this point, a lot of things are setbacks and moments of struggle,” added former Brighton & Hove Albion manager.
On the opposite sidewalk, Manchester City had a small slip on the last date when they drew 1-1 with Everton at the Etihad Stadium. This result did not allow them to approach Arsenal, who on this date could only add a point by drawing goalless with Newcastle at the Emirates Stadium.
Despite this draw of the ‘Gunners’, Pep Guardiola considered that it will be difficult for them to reach at the top of the Premier League. “Arsenal has a projection of 100 points, they have done very well so far. If it continues like this, we will not be able to reach them. We have to be almost perfect. Against Newcastle, they were excellent again. Let’s see what happens,” said the Catalan coach.
On the positive side, Manchester City has Erling Haaland in ‘on fire’ mode. The Norwegian has only played fifteen games in the current season of the English championship and has already scored twenty-one goals. These records make any defensive back tremble and Chelsea must be very attentive not to be a victim of the scoring fury of the ‘Cyborg’.
