Match Preview: Chelsea vs. Manchester City

Man City will have gained one day extra rest than their opponents after playing Watford yesterday. They survived a late scare to keep their undefeated run in the Premier League intact.

Chelsea will travel to Wolverhampton this evening, a win is needed if they are to keep any pressure on Man City at the top of the table.

Man City have won the last their last three games against Chelsea, including the Community Shield victory over Sarri's side in August.

Chelsea have struggled of late against stronger opposition, losing 3-1 against Spurs a couple of weeks ago and drawing against Everton at home. Throughout the season their goalscoring issues have been obvious, with Morata and Giroud failing to score in the big games, if at all. During the Spurs game some defensive frailties came to the fore. David Luiz looked thoroughly bamboozled in defence and there are some legitimate concerns as to how they will cope with the likes of Agüero, Sterling, Mahrez and both the Silvas.

Man City have used the depth of their squad to rest players over the past weeks and with Agüero and D.Silva having taken a match off recently they will fancy themselves as strong favourites for this match.
