Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea travel to the Etihad Stadium on Monday in search of a victory. Both clubs are major contenders for the Premier League this season, and these two teams are the favourites to lift the Premier League trophy after a run of consistent performances.
Manchester City have a 100% home record in the league this season. City have played 11 times at home this season and have won all 11 matches in the league at home, managing to score 42 goals in the process.
Arguably, Chelsea and Manchester City’s squads are the strongest in England with great strength in depth and gifted players on the substitutes bench as well as the starting XI.
But Portuguese manager Jose Mourinho admits he is not under pressure to get a victory against Manchester City.
“We are going to try to win knowing perfectly we can lose or draw. Our intention is to try to win”, said Mourinho.
Manchester City have made finding the back of the net look really easy with four players hitting double figures already this season.
Chelsea also have players on form with Samuel Eto’o recently scoring a hat trick against Manchester United. Also, the West Londoners have Belgian midfielder Eden Hazard and Brazilian duo Willian and Oscar in terrific form, who are dubbed the ‘Three Amigos’.
