Manchester City are yet to lose a game this season and have conceded just three goals in nine competitive matches. Pep Guardiola really seems to have found a system that suits his squad and the Blues look like strong contenders for all trophies this season.
But it’s fair to say City haven’t really faced a top team that will truly test them and ask questions of their offensive and defensive prowess, but that test is coming on Saturday afternoon when the Blues travel to London for a much-anticipated meeting against reigning Premier League champions Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
Antonio Conte’s men have hit their stride following a shocking opening day defeat to Burnley, and Chelsea come into this match having just beat Atlético Madrid away from home in the Champions League with a masterful performance. Chelsea dominated City in their two league meetings last season, and we’ll get a real proof of City’s ability to win big matches against arguably the best team in England.
