Manchester City‘s last Premier League game ended in a 1-1 draw with Everton, and Pep Guardiola’s team is desperate to get back on track as they compete with Arsenal for the league crown.

Erling Haaland scored his 27th goal in all competitions in the match with Frank Lampard‘s team, although City only earned one point as a result of Demarai Gray’s spectacular goal in the 64th minute.

City will have a chance to cut the gap to only five points when they meet Chelsea on Thursday night, though, as the Gunners dropped points against Newcastle United on Tuesday night.

Guardiola‘s team has been dominant all season and is aiming to retain their crown after winning the Premier League in an exciting final-day victory against Aston Villa the year before – Still competing in all cup tournaments.

While City has had a fantastic start to the season, Chelsea has struggled so far and is currently in 10th place in the league standings. Graham Potter took over as manager of Brighton after Thomas Tuchel was fired by the London team, but so far, the English coach has not had the desired effect.

In their most recent Premier League match, Chelsea and Nottingham Forest drew 1-1, with Spanish goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga continuing as the team’s first-choice keeper. This season, Edouard Mendy has made only 11 appearances across all competitions and has slipped down the Stamford Bridge order of importance.

Looking at to the attack, German forward Kai Havertz, who scored in the Champions League final versus City in 2021, should start up front as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has only scored one Premier League goal since moving from Barcelona. Raheem Sterling, a former Blues attacker, might go to the left wing to make room for Hakim Ziyech to enter and take the right flank’s starting position.

Predicted Chelsea lineup vs. City: Kepa; Azpilicueta, Thiago Silva, Koulibaly, Cucurella; Jorginho, Kovacic, Mount; Ziyech, Havertz, Sterling.
