Chelsea host Manchester City on Wednesday night at Stamford Bridge, and the game is highly important for both teams.
Chelsea legend Pat Nevin expects a cracker of a game against Pep Guardiola’s men and has revealed that these three things will make the game one of the games of the season – open football, lots of chances and top-class attacking players on show.
He wrote in the official Chelsea website: “The City game at the Bridge is going to be another cracker of a fixture. There is so much at stake and there is absolutely no doubt that Pep Guardiola will be sending out a team totally transfixed on winning. There isn’t a great deal of traction in them going for a dull 0-0, even if they were close to being able to play that way, which they are patently not. They need a win to stand even the slightest chance of catching us after those two dropped points at the Arsenal.
“So open football, lots of chances and top-class attacking players on show mean this could be one of the games of the season at Stamford Bridge. It is an evening game as well, so it will have that extra little bit of atmosphere added, just like a Champions League knockout night.”
