Chelsea FC Starting XI Prediction vs Manchester City


After getting off to a rip roaring start this season, Chelsea FC have now hit a dry spell. On November 24, Chelsea suffered their first loss in any competition of 2018-19 with a 3-1 Premier League loss to Tottenham Hotspur. They had been undefeated from the Community Shield up until that point.

Now they have lost their last two league games as they head into what might be the toughest test of the season. Additionally, the Blues have only won two of their last five across all competitions. The key to the scorching start, and then the subsequent drop-off might be Eden Hazard. After racking up seven league goals by October 7, he hasn’t scored since.

He is now goalless in his last 11 for club and country. Getting him going again could be the way to a resurgence.
