After Atletico ambush, Hazard sets sights on City

30 Septembre 2017

"But they are back competing and I expect them to be in the latter stages of the Champions League and winning the Premier League".

Manchester City have so much firepower that it's hard to look past them as the winners here. Palace have to slot one home eventually, and Man United won't have their most formidable lineup after playing a Champions League fixture in Russian Federation on Tuesday. However, they're structured a bit differently.

Don't forget the Blues did the double over Pep Guardiola's men last season. Any stumble could cause City's price to rise. Last season, the corresponding fixture ended 2-1 for Chelsea, as we saw all three goals in the first half, with Eden Hazard (2) and Sergio Aguero were the scorers.

The story has been broken by The Guardian, who report that Premier League Chairman Richard Scudamore presented a proposal to the 14 clubs on behalf of the six attempting to move the goalposts.

Former striker Ian Wright selects his top tips for Saturday's action.

"He's the only player in my mind when it comes to the first goalscorer market - and I fancy United to get loads againsrt Crystal Palace".

"It's also about character, going to Stamford Bridge against the champions to play our game". With Leroy Sané and Raheem Sterling coming off the bench to score in nearly every game as well, the Citizens' squad depth is frightening, and it is no surprise that they have won all of their away games in the league so far.

Current domestic TV deals with BT Sport, Sky and the BBC are worth £5.1bn for 2016-19. They are scoring a lot of goals (21 in six Premier League games alone), they are in a good moment of form and we have to prepare well for this game because it is very important. "I love this", Conte said. In Chelsea's biggest matches, it appears Conte favours a five man midfield to the 3-4-3 he has used in other matches.

The Belgian looks to be back in shape and will nearly certainly start unless he suffers a relapse before kick-off.

"Only Danny Drinkwater is unavailable due to injury for tomorrow's game".

Guardiola also confirmed that the knee injury suffered by Benjamin Mendy will keep the left-back out for longer than he expected, as it is believed that Mendy could be sidelined for the majority of the season.

The Blues are now third in the standings, three points off the table topping Citizens, and they have recovered well from their 3-2 home defeat to Burnley on the opening day of the season. I think Pep is a really good coach.

On the other hand, City's actual defenders are definitely rated higher than Chelsea's.

The fact that Huddersfield Town have only conceded three goals in the Premier league so far means that their defence is mean and they will fight to the end. That should not be a worry though, since West Brom went through tough fixtures, losing to both Manchester City and Arsenal in their last two matches, while Watford were thrashed by Manchester City 6-0 even though they redeemed themselves against Swansea in their last outing.
