Manchester City are having a really tough moment

Manchester City are having a really tough moment, but they need to regroup and face Chelsea at the Etihad on Saturday. Before the international break the Cityzens lost the derby against Liverpool and that’s why they are currently 4th and 9 points behind the leader. Today in our English Premier League predictions we are going to take a look at this match.

As it looks right now, Manchester City are in a very difficult situation to chase a third consecutive title in the league. Being 9 points behind the leader is a serious disadvantage, but there are still 26 rounds to be played, so nothing is impossible. But if they want to stay in the title race, the Cityzens must avoid doing any mistakes right now.

Manchester City had to avoid losing at the Anfield and keep the gap behind Liverpool at 6 points, but Jurgen Klopp’s boys dominated. Bernardo Silva scored for the champions at the end of the game, but before this Liverpool have already scored three times.

The good news for Pep Guardiola is the return of Ederson. Meanwhile Bernardo Silva is suspended for the next match.

Chelsea are now ahead of Man City in the standings. After five consecutive wins in the league, the Blues are now third in the table with 26 points. Frank Lampard’s boys are in magnificent form at the moment.

If Chelsea can hurt Manchester City with something on Saturday this is their confidence. Right now they are aware that they are in terrific shape, so the Londoners will try to use this in their favour. Lampard’s problems before the game are linked to the injuries of Christian Pulisic and Ross Barkley.

That’s our English Premier League predictions for the game between Manchester City and Chelsea on Saturday. To be honest with you, both teams can win this one, so be careful – it’s a tough one.
