Chelsea vs Man City Preview, Team News, H2H and Prediction
We have an action-packed Sunday set as it is Chelsea vs Man City at Stamford Bridge. Frank Lampard would be under more pressure going into this game having won just one out of their last 5 premier league games.
Chelsea are having a tough time at the moment, having managed to take only one win from a possible six.
The pressure is mounting on the Blues boss as he was provided everything he asked for and a trophy-less season for the Blues could come as a serious concern for the ex-Chelsea midfielder.
For Man City, they missed the game at Goodison despite traveling due to the COVID-19 outbreak at the club.

Chelsea are struggling at the moment and it seems they will have to make peace with a spot in the top four as they were restricted to only a point by the Villains.
For the Cityzens too, things aren't clicking as they haven't been like they were in 17/18 or 18/19. They are not scoring like they used to. However, there have been considerable improvements in the defensive department.
Manchester City are currently in a ten-game unbeaten streak but because they are 8th it doesn't seem that convincing.
