CHE vs MCI: One major factor that could help City defeat Chelsea on Saturday.
The Premier League champions are set to visit the European Champions at home on Saturday afternoon in a mouthwatering encounter. The two teams have had a different start to the Premier League season. While Chelsea has picked up four wins and draw in five league games, City have suffered a defeat and a draw in five league games so far this season, which left them three points behind Chelsea in the race for the Premier League title.
Going into this weekend’s encounter, Chelsea will be in buoyant mood considering their current form and recent results against Manchester City. Since his appointment as the blues manager, Thomas Tuchel has masterminded three consecutive victories against Pep Guardiola’s City, one of which was in the UCL final. However, despite all of Chelsea’s good records, we believe City still has a chance and as such, we will look at one major factor that could help them gain all three points on Saturday.
Considering what they have at their disposal, it will always be tricky for any team to play against Chelsea at the moment. In Manchester City’s case, their recent records against the blues means they will be going into the encounter with their confidence down. However, football has proved to us several times that it is full of surprises, as such, one could not conclude yet what the outcome of the game will be and as long as both teams are allowed to play with 11players each, anything can still happen.
In my opinion, one thing I believe could play to City’s advantage is the fact that they are three points behind Chelsea. Football is not just a game of sport, it is about fighting what lies within, these word could be exactly what will inspire City on Saturday because they will know fully well that this is their opportunity to leapfrog the blues and a defeat in this encounter could see them further behind the likes of Liverpool, and Manchester United, as such, this one factor could be what will inspire them to Victory.
