The Chelsea vs. Manchester City match will be played on Wednesday, April 5, at the Stamford Bridge Stadium, London. Chelsea is currently the leader in English Premier League, with 69 points, while Manchester City is 4th on the table at the moment, with 58 points.


  • Chelsea was in a series of 12 matches without a defeat, before they Crystal Palace shook them at Stamford Bridge last weekend and celebrated 2-1 victory. That loss gave a glimpse of hope to their rivals, and Manchester City will have an opportunity to make the race even more exciting.
  • Manchester City is in a terrible form at the moment - they recorded only one victory in the last 5 games in all competitions. However, in the last two games, they had strong opponents. The Citizens recorded two draws against Liverpool and Arsenal.


In their previous 10 meetings, Chelsea recorded 4 victories, Manchester City also won 4 games, while 2 matches ended in a draw. In their last 4 games, we saw over 2.5 goals.

The shocking defeat against Crystal Palace gave Chelsea's rivals one last chance to close the gap and win the title in the end. However, the advantage is still huge - Chelsea has 7 points more than Tottenham with 9 matches to go. Eventual victory against Manchester City is a crucial for the Blues - if they beat them, Guardiola's team will be knocked out from the race for the title.

In February, Manchester City performed spectacularly well, they returned to the top 4 in Premier League, and it seemed they might even challenge Tottenham in the race for the second place on the table. However, Monaco eliminated them from Champions League, and they fell into some apathy. The match against Chelsea is their last chance to stay in the race for the top 3 places on the table.
