Hold onto your hats, because one of the most anticipated matches of the season is edging closer to kick off…
Chelsea v Manchester City, Saturday 8 December, 5pm, BT Sport 1 HD (CH 532)
It’s a fixture that gets you hot under the collar just thinking about it. Premier League champions Manchester City take on challengers Chelsea at Stamford Bridge this Saturday, and it’s got the makings of a platinum-edged classic.
City’s title defence has been nothing short of stunning, with Pep Guardiola’s team raising the bar for everyone else – and then some. From goalkeeper Ederson to star striker Sergio Agüero, the league leaders have dazzled, dazed and decimated all before them so far. But they’re about to face their toughest test yet in Chelsea.
Equal parts grit and gold, Maurizio Sarri’s men have made it clear from the first kick of the season that they are serious contenders for City’s crown. Whether it’s a miserly defence, a midfield brimming with world-class options, or a certain Eden Hazard looking bang up for it, the Blues are definitely the real deal.
In the wider context of the season, a win for Chelsea this weekend would send a huge message to the other runners and riders in the title race. Meanwhile, a victory for City (who beat Chelsea 2-0 in the Community Shield back in August) would have the rest of the league quaking in their fluorescent boots.
