Chelsea vs Manchester City Preview:
On November 25th Chelsea welcomes Manchester City at the Stamford Bridge in London. New had coach Benitez takes on champions in his first match. Chelsea will play first game at the Stamford Bridge after two straight defeats with following Roberto Di Matteo’s shock dismissal.
Chelsea goes on third position in the table with twenty four points after twelve matches. They have won seven, drawn three and lost two games. Their last five EPL games have seen just one win, two draws and two defeats. The big news is the sacking of Roberto Di Matteo and Rafa Benitez to replace him. This is a result of a very poor run with no wins in four league games and especially 3-0 defeat away at Juvetus in the Champions League. This loss could cost them their place in the knockout stages. A crush in this match would leave them seven points behind City. They must to get points if they want to stay in the title fight.
Manchester City stands on the top of the EPL with twenty eight points. Also they are still undefeated with eight wins and four draws. City were left frustrated midweek with a 1-1 draw against Real Madrid. They left without knock-out stage of the Champions League for the second straight year. This has put abilities of head coach Roberto Mancini under pressure. But probably while they are at the top of the league his job is safe.
Rafa Benitez can’t count on captain John Terry, cause he injured himself in the game against Liverpool. Frank Lampard and Daniel Sturridge also will remain sidelined.
Roberto Mancini will play without injured captain Vincent Kompany. Gael Clichy, Micah Richards and Mario Balotelli are also not expected. James Milner could return after recovering from a hamstring injury.
