Manchester City Preview

For Fantasy picks, look no further than City’s forwards. Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling are the ones who lead their attack. Goals from them are almost a given and they should find a way to your team.

Chelsea Preview

Frank Lampard’s young guns have been impressive this season. The ‘Blues’ have picked up six Premier League matches in a row. A win here will give Chelsea an eighth consecutive away win in all competitions. That will be a historical first for the club.

Chelsea have been scoring goals consistently this season. They have 18 in away matches, which is the most for any Premier League team. For fantasy picks, keep a close eye on the Chelsea forwards. Tammy Abraham and Christian Pulisic have been in excellent scoring form for Chelsea.

Fantasy Players to Watch

Sergio Aguero has scored ten Premier League goals against Chelsea. That is a tally more than any other player in the competition. He has eight goals in his last six matches against the Blues, including a hat-trick last season.

Tammy Abraham has seven away goals in the Premier League this season. That is the best return for any player so far. In fact, that is equal to or better than 15 of the other 19 clubs.

Raheem Sterling has 24 goals in 29 games this season for club and country. He will be looking to add to the tally and get City back on the title track.
