Chelsea vs Man City: Head to Head Preview
Another massive game is on the horizon in the Premier League as our early lunch-time kick off sees Pep Guardiola’s Man City go head-to-head with Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
Chelsea has been undefeated so far in the Premier League, whereas Manchester City lost their opening fixture against Tottenham Hotspur, after which City have won all their games except the one against Southampton, where they played for a draw.
Both Chelsea and Man City have conceded one goal this season in the Premier League. Both team’s defense has been up to their usual water-tight standards. However, Tuchel’s Chelsea has looked more solid this season as they stand on top of the table alongside Liverpool.
Chelsea’s last game was against Tottenham where they won 3-0 at the Wembley Stadium, courtesy of a commanding second half display by the blues.
Man City’s last Premier League game was against Southampton, where they underperformed with a 0-0 draw. They did not manage to land a single shot on target.

Chelsea vs Man City: Head to Head Prediction
Manchester City have blown hot and cold this season with couple of below par performances against Spurs and Southampton. Pep Guardiola's recent call out to the City fans to show more support for his team might not go down well with the City faithful.
Chelsea has looked solid in all departments which is why they are undefeated so far this season.
We predict Chelsea to overpower Man City yet again at the bridge as the Tuchel's men are looking serious title contenders this season, and this game would be a perfect test for the London club to stamp their authority in the league this season.
