Why Chelsea are confident of a victory against Manchester City this weekend

The Blues head to the Etihad Stadium this weekend to face Manchester City.

Chelsea are third on the Premier League table, one point adrift of fourth placed Manchester City.

This is the fifth time in the last nine seasons that Manchester City are facing Chelsea in a Premier League game while below us in the table. The Blues will be confident heading into this weekend’s fixture as Manchester City haven’t won any of the previous four in that time (two draws, two defeats).

Frank Lampard’s Chelsea have the second-best away record in the Premier League this season with 15 points from six games, one point behind Liverpool.

The Blues have scored 18 away Premier League goals, more than any other side this season and will be backed by many to score at the Etihad Stadium this weekend.
