FORM GUIDE

City currently sit eighth in the Premier League table having missed out on the last round of Premier League fixtures due to the postponement of our trip to Everton.

Our 2-0 win over Newcastle United on Boxing Day extended our unbeaten run in all competitions to 10 games, with just two goals conceded in that time.

CITY+  SIGN UP TO ACCESS EXCLUSIVE CONTENT

The hosts find themselves in sixth position in the Premier League, on the same points as City (26), with their last league outing coming in a 1-1 home draw against Aston Villa.

LAST MEETING

Our last visit to Stamford Bridge ended in a 2-1 defeat, with the loss confirming Liverpool as Premier League champions.

Christian Pulisic gave the hosts a first-half lead before a superb Kevin De Bruyne goal levelled the scores after the break.

However, Willian’s 78th-minute penalty settled the encounter.

PREVIEW: Pep guardiola 

"We have a good squad to go there and try to compete against a tough opponent Chelsea.

"We will go there to play our game with enthusiasm and good will. We try to do our job and do a good performance."

 "When you win a lot of titles - four in one season - you play a lot of games. It won't be an exception right now.

"If we play a lot of games it means we are in the competitions."

PREVIEW: FRANK LAMPARD 

"It’s a game we want to win against a very good opposition. They are always going to be there, or there abouts Man City so to be up there with them – even with our recent run of form – is a plus.

"I know we need to be at our best to win because of the opposition.

"In terms of their weaknesses I don’t see it, they’re strong outfit and very well managed so we will have to focus on ourselves and be at our best."
