Manchester City Starting XI Prediction at Chelsea FC

Share

Manchester City have suffered five of their seven losses this season on the road so their next match, a Thursday night clash at Chelsea FC, is certainly a tricky and challenging one. Then again, you still got to like their chances in southwest London, because no side has scored more away goals this season than the defending champions.

City have also not lost back to back road games since 2018, so they should get a result of some sort at the Bridge in midweek. We’ll see how they fare with Gabriel Jesus now deputizing for Sergio Aguero, as the usual line leader is now out with a knee injury.

Having watched City in the two games they’ve played since Project Restart took hold, it’s hard to pick against them right now, even if it is a road match at a top four side.
