Manchester City v Chelsea: match preview

Manchester City v Chelsea: match preview

Manchester City would surely ruin Chelsea’s title challenge if they beat them, as each would have 16 games remaining but the champions 13-point advantage. Pep Guardiola has further Covid cases to contend with though the manager has not revealed who they are. Thomas Tuchel is rated highly by Guardiola and after Chelsea’s 1-0 defeat in the reverse fixture, Tuchel’s plan to turn the champions over on their own turf should fascinate. Jamie Jackson
