PREDICTION
Chelsea lost at Manchester United last week and they face an even tougher task here as they face Pep Guardiola's champions-in-waiting. City are showing no signs of letting up despite their considerable lead at the top of the Premier League and they will be intent on overturning last season's champions in Sunday's clash.

MEMORABLE MEETING
December 2016’s clash between Manchester City and Chelsea was labelled ‘The Battle of the Etihad’ as Pep Guardiola’s men would end the game with just nine men. Antonio Conte’s side outclassed their hosts and subsequently the City players lost their heads as well as the game, with Sergio Aguero and Fernandinho sent off in injury-time as tempers flared towards the end. Cooler heads would prevail as Chelsea won 3-1 and laid down a marker in their bid for that season’s Premier League title.
