Man City vs Chelsea prediction

City will be under pressure ahead of this tie with title rivals Liverpool and Arsenal both in action earlier in the day but Guardiola’s squad has the experience to handle the situation.

These two sides played out a 4-4 thriller in the reverse fixture in November — including a late penalty equaliser from Palmer — but City have won five of their last six home league games against Chelsea, three 1-0 victories.

Prediction: Man City 1-0 Chelsea
