Kick Off – 17.30pm Saturday 16th April 2016 – Live on Sky Sports 1

Chelsea take on Manchester City at Stamford Bridge on Saturday in the late Premier League kick-off, as the visitors attempt to move one step closer to clinching a Champions League spot.

The reigning Premier League champions Chelsea suffered a 1-0 defeat at Swansea last time out, as Gylfi Sigurdsson inflicted Guus Hiddink’s first defeat in the Premier League in his second spell as Blues boss. The defeat also ended the Blues 15 game unbeaten run in the top-flight.

The Blues are currently tenth in the Premier League table and now even look highly-unlikely to even finish in the top six this season.

Manchester City maintained their place in the top four with a narrow 2-1 victory over West Brom on Saturday evening. The Baggies took the lead through attacking midfielder Stephane Sessegnon early in the first half.

A penalty from Sergio Aguero in the first half and a second half Samir Nasri were enough to clinch three points for the Citizens though. Manuel Pellegrini’s side are now four points clear of fifth-place Manchester United.

Aguero has now scored in consecutive Premier League games and despite injury has found the net 18 times in the English top-flight.

Facts And Figures

These two teams have met 37 times in the Premier League and Chelsea have enjoyed far the better of the fixture recording 22 wins. City have recorded eight wins and seven games have finished in draws.

The 18 Premier League meetings at Stamford Bridge between the pair have also been dominated by the Blues, who have recorded 11 wins. Five games have finished in draws and City have claimed just one win.

Despite their dominance in this fixture of late, Chelsea have won just one of the last five meetings in all competitions, but that win came earlier this season in a 5-1 hammering in the FA Cup at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea are unbeaten in their last seven home Premier League games, but have drawn six of those games and won just once. The Blues have only failed to find the net at Stamford Bridge in the top-flight once in their last 35 games.

Team Selection And News

The home side will be without centre-back Kurt Zouma and striker Loic Remy through injury, while centre-backs John Terry and Gary Cahill are doubts along with midfielder Nemanja Matic and attacking midfielder Eden Hazard. Striker Diego Costa should return from suspension.

City are without centre-back Vincent Kompany and winger Raheem Sterling through injury, while Spanish playmaker David Silva is also a doubt. The likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Yaya Toure and Fernandinho all could be return to the starting line-up.

Possible Chelsea Team Selection

Begovic, Azpilicueta, Ivanovic, Miazga, Rahman, Mikel, Fabregas, Oscar, Loftus-Cheek, Pedro, Costa

Possible Manchester City Team Selection

Hart, Sagna, Otamendi, Demichelis, Clichy, Fernando, Fernandinho, Navas, Nasri, De Bruyne, Aguero

Match Prediction

Chelsea have struggled to win home games of late and look like they now have very little to play for in this clash. City are in a battle to maintain fourth spot and are in need of a win in this one. I can see Pellegrini’s side coming away with a win from this clash.
