The last meeting between Manchester City and Chelsea ended as an eight goal thriller. Will fans be in for another treat when the two sides face off on Saturday?

Will fans and neutrals alike be in for another thriller as Manchester City and Chelsea lock horns on Saturday? Many will naturally be hoping that the answer will be a resounding yes, as the last time the two sides met at Stamford Bridge, a whopping eight goals were scored as Pep Guardiola's men were held to a 4-4 draw by Mauricio Pochettino's young side. 

Manchester City come into this match in fantastic form. The Cityzens, who are aiming to defend both their continental and domestic titles, have won their last 11 games across all competitions and have one foot firmly into the Champions League quarter-finals after recording a 3-1 win over Copenhagen in the round of 16. Guardiola's side has recovered essential players like Erling Haaland and Kevin De Bruyne just as the right time and both players have proven to be key protagonists since returning to the fold.

In addition, City are not only unbeaten in their last 22 Premier League matches at the Etihad but also have won six of their last eight league home games against Chelsea. Meanwhile, the Blues are continuing to keep steadily working their way up the table. The London side were successfully able to overcome Aston Villa 3-1 in the FA Cup fourth round replay and also secured a hard-fought 3-1 result against Crystal Palace to make it two wins from their last two fixtures.

However, Chelsea have not beaten Manchester City in their last seven meetings across all competitions. Indeed, their last success against the Cityzens was in the 2021 Champions League final, during which former player Kai Havertz's goal was enough to clinch the title at the expense of Guardiola's troops. Although Chelsea have shown signs of improvement, they are expected to face some tough odds in this game, especially with Manchester City's formidable home record and the reigning Premier League champions really starting to hit their stride as of late.
