Fantasy Football: EPL Week 26 Manchester City vs Chelsea Preview

Manchester City vs Chelsea

It gets bigger and better in the English Premier League week 26, as Manchester City welcome Chelsea to the Etihad Stadium. City are top of the table ahead of Liverpool’s weekend game. They can get back to the summit with a win in this match. However, Chelsea will look for a win themselves to get back into top-four.

Manchester City Preview

City have won their last two matches and have lost just once in their last seven Premier League matches (W6, L1). Only goal difference puts them ahead of Liverpool, which means Pep Guardiola’s side will look to keep winning.

There is also the additional incentive of taking revenge on the 2-0 loss at Stamford Bridge earlier in the season. City have lost 25 Premier League clashes against Chelsea, which is their most against any opponent.

Twelve wins in 13 home games give City the best home record in the Premier League. However, they have already dropped 16 points this season.

Chelsea Preview

Chelsea dropped out of the top-four after Manchester United won at Fulham on Saturday. However, the Blues can reclaim their fourth place with a win over City. The worry, though, is that Chelsea have lost two of their last three league matches (W1, L2).

The visitors have more troubles on the road, losing their last two away games in the league. They failed to score in both the games and could equal their club record of failing to score in three consecutive away games.

The Blues, however, are winless in six Premier League away games against established top-six opposition. Chelsea have lost each of the last four such matches.

Fantasy Players to Watch

Sergio Aguero is in fine form and has 22 goals in his last 15 Premier League starts at home. He has scored in each of the last six home starts and can be a good pick for your fantasy side.

Gonzalo Higuain has 38 goals in 37 league matches he played under Maurizio Sarri. The forward can be Chelsea’s saviour.

Raheem Sterling has enjoyed playing at home against top-sides, as was seen by his performance against Arsenal.
