Ahead of Saturday’s Premier League game between Chelsea and Manchester City at Stamford Bridge, former Premier League striker Michael Owen believes the game would end in a draw.
Chelsea have lost two of our last three games against Manchester City but Owen believes Chelsea are a different team under Maurizio Sarri.
Owen predicted a 1-1 draw.
“Chelsea have lost two of their last three and only mustered seven shots in the two league games – both won by City – between the sides last season,” Owen said according to Metro UK.
“Chelsea are a different proposition under Maurizio Sarri, especially at the Bridge, this season and I feel they can keep a point. City were far too good for the Blues in the Community Shield in the season curtain-raiser but, back on home soil, I feel Chelsea will get a draw from a 1-1 draw as they did against Liverpool earlier in the season.”
Ahead of the clash with Manchester City on Saturday, Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has revealed the problems Chelsea must solve.
“We have a problem to manage the match at the moment,” Sarri explained.
“In the last two matches we played well for 55, 60 minutes but at the first difficulty we blacked out.
“In the first match [a 2-0 win over Fulham] we were lucky because they didn’t score.
“In the last match [against Wolves] we were a little unlucky as our opponent had five shots and only two on target, and we conceded two goals. But, after the first goal, we went into [a] blackout and were not able to react.”
