Insight and Analysis: Manchester City vs Chelsea Premier League 2022 Match Prediction and Preview

Manchester City vs Chelsea Premier League 2022 Match Prediction,Injuries/Suspension, Match Facts, Team News, Preview and Where to Watch.

Another week brings another chance for Manchester City to land a blow on one of their Premier League (PL) pursuers.

And beating Chelsea could amount to a knockout as victory would put them 13 points clear of the Londoners. 

The league leaders enter this clash in ominous form, having won their last seven competitive matches while scoring an average of 3.57 goals per game!

With five straight home league wins under their belt, fans of the ‘Cityzens’ will expect a good show.

Particularly as their last two PL matches at the Etihad produced an eye-watering 16 goals! 

Although the side scoring first has subsequently won the last ten PL affairs here that saw goals (City: W9, L1).

It’s worth noting that the last team to buck that trend was Chelsea when they secured a 2-1 comeback win here last term.

That should offer hope to the second-placed visitors who haven’t lost a competitive fixture since early December (W6, D5). 

They’ve come through a busy festive period relatively unscathed and are still battling on four fronts after getting past Spurs in the EFL Cup on Wednesday.

Although any signs of fatigue could see a trend of four of their last seven games featuring goals after the 75th minute continue.

The ‘Blues’ are unlikely to be overawed by the task of taking on Man City as they’ve won three of the last four H2Hs, including the Champions League final last term. 

However, just one clean sheet in four PL away games could spell danger, as Chelsea haven’t kept one here in eight attempts (W2, D1, L5).

Players to watch

İlkay Gündoğan has scored the third match goal in two of Man City’s last four competitive matches, while Hakim Ziyech completed the scoring for Chelsea in their FA Cup win over Chesterfield last weekend. 

And has also netted after half-time in two of the last four H2Hs.

Hot stat 

Both City and Chelsea have been trailing at the 15-minute mark just once in the PL this term.

Team News

Manchester City

Riyad Mahrez is away at AFCON so Manchester City will be missing their top scorer in all competitions for the welcome of Chelsea.

Kyle Walker returned to first-team action at the weekend after exactly a month out, but the likes of Phil Foden, John Stones and Oleksandr Zinchenko remain doubts.

Jack Grealish has not got off the bench in the last couple when City have played their rivals so it will be interesting to see whether that continues here.


Thiago Silva and N’Golo Kante both returned from COVID-19 in Chelsea’s 1-0 win away to Tottenham on Wednesday night but now Andreas Christensen has tested positive.

Defensive trio Ben Chilwell, Reece James and Trevoh Chalobah will not be available.

Timo Werner, Kai Havertz and Hakim Ziyech are in competition to start in attack alongside Mason Mount and Romelu Lukaku.

Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic may get the nod in midfield over Kante, who looked a little rusty off the bench against Tottenham in midweek.

There have been over 2.5 goals scored in 8 of Man City’s last 10 games (Premier League).

Manchester City have won 12 in a row domestically and will look to take another big step towards the Premier League title with a win over another of their rivals.

Chelsea head into Saturday’s game in second but 10 points behind City. They need to win if there is to be a glimmer of hope in the title race.

City haven’t looked as sound defensively of late with just one clean sheet across their last four but with 12 wins from 14 at home this season the are expected to get three points here.
