During the weekend Chelsea have lost in their away game 2-1 versus Wolverhampton, and it seems the team can’t fight for the Premier League trophy this season. In the recent weeks, The Blues are playing poorly compared to the strong performance in the first few matches of Maurizio Sarri as a coach of Chelsea.
Manchester City are playing perfectly since the start of the season. During the weekend the team won 2-1 against Watford and continue to be unbeaten. In the derby matches, they didn’t win only versus Liverpool. The players of Pep Guardiola are in a perfect form and scored at least two goals in the previous five matches in the league.
Maurizio Sarri improved Chelsea’s performance compared to the previous season, but the team is still not ready to fight against Manchester City for the title. The decline in the form of Jorginho and Eden Hazard is noticeable which affects the team’s performance, while The Citizens even without Sergio Aguero and Kevin De Bruyne continue to be a scoring machine. We expect an easy victory for Manchester City. I will back Manchester City to Win, with Manchester City 3-1 Correct Score.
