Antonio Conte will take his Chelsea side to the rampant Manchester City side.
City are the runaway leaders at this stage of the season having amassed a 16 point lead at the top of the table with only 10 games remaining of the season.
The reigning champions currently sit 5th in the table, two points off the top four.
The superlatives to describe this Manchester City team that haven’t already been used are very minimal. They have played scintillating football throughout the whole season and Guardiola has successfully enriched his team to perform at a phenomenally high level.
In the midweek fixture against Arsenal, they tore them to shreds with consummate ease with three beautiful goals.
With a midweek Champions League fixture in a tie that’s already wrapped up, Guardiola should field his strongest unit in this game.
Chelsea have had an up and down season this year but are still very much in the chase for a top four position. Conte and his side recently put on a masterful performance against Barcelona in the Champions League and deserved to win the game.
With the attacking talents of Barcelona and Man City being comparable this year, expect Conte to deploy the same tactics in this game.
If Conte plays the same fluid front three of Hazard, Willian and Pedro, he will be looking to soak up pressure and hit the Cityzens on the counter.
SCORE PREDICTION: Manchester City 3-1 Chelsea – Aguero to score first.
