Chelsea vs Manchester City Preview, Prediction, Latest H2H record: Premier League 2021/22, Gameweek 6
It’sthe battle of the heavyweights this weekend as the Blues and the Sky Blues come to blows at Stamford Bridge. And Alley Sport brings you the Chelsea vs Manchester City Preview, Prediction, and H2H record from this gameweek 6 match-up this weekend in the 2021/22 Premier League season.
Chelsea vs Manchester City Preview
Chelsea and Manchester City would both see each other as title rivals this season, and for good reason. Boosted by the additions of Romelu Lukaku and Jack Grealish for record amounts, the two teams are gunning for the Premier League trophy and have made decent starts in that regard, with City trailing table-toppers Chelsea by just 3 points.
Chelsea are currently leading the table on an alphabetical basis. The Blues have won four of their first 5 matches, conceding just 1 goal and scoring 12 in the process. Their only draw came against Liverpool, who have an identical record. The Blues will know that they have to keep the good run of form going, especially with title rivals Liverpool having an easy game this weekend vs Brentford.
Manchester City started the season in terrible circumstances as they lost to a Tottenham Hotspur side that beat them 1-0 without Harry Kane, a player they chased for the entirety of the summer transfer window. They won their next three league games, but have now drawn against Southampton last weekend in a shock result. This game against Chelsea is decisive for them in the long run, and nothing less than a win will do.

Chelsea vs Manchester City Match Prediction
Manchester City are very strong all over the pitch. Despite the lack of an attacker, they have had fun in front of goal against the weaker opposition. But Chelsea will be a different beast and won’t back down without a fight. However, we believe Chelsea’s ultra-defensive approach will backfire and Pep Guardiola’s side will walk away with a 1-0 win here.
