The Manchester City vs. Chelsea match will be played on Sunday, March 5, at the Etihad Stadium, Manchester. Manchester City is currently 1st on the table with 75 points, while Chelsea is 5th with 53 points. This is the derby match of English Premier League round 29.


  • Manchester City was defeated only once in the league since the start of the season. In the last five league games they had four victories and one draw. They scored eight goals in their last two games against Leicester and Arsenal.
  • Chelsea was defeated in three out of their last four Premier League games. It is interesting that their last five Premier League victories came with a clean sheet.


In their last ten meetings, Manchester City recorded four victories, Chelsea also had four wins, while two games ended in a draw. In five out of their last six matches we saw over 2.5 goals.


Manchester City almost secured the title. Apart from the match against Chelsea, they have only to play against Manchester United and Tottenham out of the top six English clubs. Manchester United and Liverpool need a miracle to catch them. Manchester City defeated Basel by 4:0 in the first leg of Champions League first knockout round, and they won the League Cup trophy recently, so a triple crown is still in the game for manager Pep Guardiola.

After winning the title in last season, Chelsea encountered numerous problems in this. They had many injuries, especially in defense, and they are even losing the race for the position number four, which leads to Champions League in the upcoming season. Manager Antonio Conte is on the brink of leaving the club and if Chelsea lose the upcoming game, they might finish the season with an interim manager.
