Esteemed Kompany host Steven Mcinerney previews Manchester City’s clash with Chelsea. The game is City’s last before the international break and begins a crucial run of fixtures for the Premier League champions.
City’s trip to Stamford Bridge will see the treble winners see two familiar faces. Cole Palmer and Raheem Sterling have both left the European champions to sign for Chelsea. The pair have both been in sparkling form for the Blues recently. They’ll be determined to make an impression against their former teammates and will need to be watched.
Pep Guardiola’s side will come into the game off the back of five consecutive wins in all competitions. They’ll be looking to continue their recent outstanding form and cap off a stellar period since the previous international break. After a brief blip that resulted in consecutive Premier League losses to Wolves and Arsenal City have begun to fire on all cylinders since. A win here would give the treble winners tremendous momentum heading into a crucial run of fixtures after the upcoming international break.
Esteemed Kompany host Steven Mcinerney looks into Pep Guardiola’s pre-game comments ahead of Sunday’s big clash. The City manager gave a positive update on injured trio Kevin De Bruyne, John Stones and Manuel Akanji. Akanji was declared fit to play after being withdrawn before kick-off for the midweek win over Young Boys.
Steven also gives his predicted starting eleven ahead of kickoff for the meeting between two of England’s biggest clubs.
