Current form: Chelsea vs Manchester City

Chelsea's shock midweek loss to Wolves - which was their second in their last three Premier League games - has the Blues still in the top four, but barely hanging on ahead of Arsenal, who have now crept up on them in the battle for a Champions League spot. Furthermore, Maurizio Sarri's side have slipped well behind in the Premier League title race as they now sit ten points behind reigning champions Manchester City, who have yet to lose a single game this season.

Meanwhile, Manchester City battled to a hard-fought 2-1 win over Watford on the road in their own midweek tie to make it their 13th win of the season and bring their points total to a very impressive 41 points from just 15 rounds so far. Along with PSG, Juventus, and Dortmund, Pep Guardiola's side are in some elite company as a quartet of league leaders who boast zero defeats so far in domestic affairs this campaign.

Current position: Chelsea vs Manchester City

Chelsea sit in fourth, while Manchester City, who, along with Liverpool are still the only unbeaten side in the Premier League are in first place, two points ahead of the Reds.

Here's how the two sides compare ahead of this mammoth clash.
