Arguably the most highly anticipated fixture on this week’s Premier League schedule will take place at Stamford Bridge as Chelse take on Manchester City in a massive league showdown.
A 2-1 comeback away triumph over Aston Villa last time out brought Chelsea’s unbeaten league run to four games (W3, D1), helping them to keep a five-point lead over fifth-placed Manchester United. Notably, each of those four matches during the abovementioned streak saw Chelsea score over 1.5 goals, with four of the ten goals they’ve managed across those fixtures coming inside the opening 15 minutes of the second half. Interestingly, just one of the Blues’ last 13 Premier League home games has ended in a draw (W7, L5), with 75% (nine) of those 12 results (win/loss) seeing the winner on the day keep a clean sheet. In turn, three of their last four top-flight H2Hs held at this venue saw the losers shut out (W2, L2).
As for the visitors, they’ve been impressive since the league’s restart, securing back-to-back home triumphs over Arsenal and Burnley, respectively. The fact that both of those successes saw Manchester City keep their net intact now means that all seven of the Sky Blues’ previous league matches featured the winner on the day preserve a clean sheet (W5, L2). Additionally, away from home in the Premier League, the last four of the reigning holders’ matches have produced under 2.5 goals and witnessed the winning side shut out the losers (W2, L2). But, Pep Guardiola’s men could find themselves in trouble if they concede the opening goal here. Indeed, City lost all four of their Premier League trips in which they’ve allowed the opener.
