A BATTLE of the big guns. Reigning champions Manchester City against potential title contenders Chelsea. Frank Lampard’s young Blues side have impressed and currently sit third in the table, a point ahead of Pep Guardiola’s men.

  The loss to Liverpool means that Man City have already lost 3 games this season. They only lost 4 last time out. The Citizens have fallen off quite a bit and that showed as they wasted chances at Merseyside before the Reds convincingly shoved them aside.

  The only good thing was that City still managed to trouble Liverpool more than other teams have at Anfield. Sergio Aguero going into incognito mode didn’t help. The Argentine must be raging to get back to firing on all cylinders after that embarrassment. Chelsea would be foolish to take him for granted, knowing just how lethal he is finishing off chances at his beloved Etihad.

  City are firmly second-favourites to win EPL trophy despite sitting 4th on the league table. However, in order to keep their hopes up, they must find back the momentum which allowed them to win 14 matches in-a-row to seal the title last season. The Citizens must maintain their defensive solidity or risk being carved apart by this booming young squad.

  Chelsea are flying high, winning their last five Premier League games, and Man City are coming off the back of a 3-1 loss to title rivals Liverpool. But, as impressive as Chelsea have been, City are a different class altogether, especially at home.

  The Blues, however, aren’t one to go defensive. A fearless unit under new management, they have mastered the art of withering the storm away from home. Not only have they won their last five league away games, but pulling out a miracle at Ajax proved just how good Lampard’s tactical knowledge is.

  With Liverpool already nine points in front of City at the top of the standings, they cannot afford another slip-up.

  Knowing how both sides love to attack, this should be a thrilling, end-to-end contest. Chelsea won’t back down. City’s defense is vulnerable. However, I think City are too strong at home. Being desperate for a win, they’ll probably be relentless gunning forward for goals. They should win 3-1.

  PREDICTED SCORE: OVER 2.5 MATCH GOALS.
