The Form – Man City v Chelsea
Man City’s Form
Man City come into this fixture on course for a historic treble, they have booked their FA Cup Final place against Man United in Wembley on June 3rd following a run to the final where they have scored seventeen goals across their five matches, conceding none in the process.
In their last match they demolished Real Madrid in Manchester beating them in their Champions League Semi-Final second leg to book their place in the Final against Inter Milan, the chance to win their first-ever Champions League trophy.
They could have even won the EFL Cup had it not been their 2-0 elimination at the hands of Southampton back in January!
In the Premier League they have won their last eleven Premier League matches last dropping points to Nottingham Forrest on February 18th their last defeat came against Tottenham 1-0 on February 5th They are now one victory away from their third Premier League in a row and the first step in a potentially historic treble.
Chelsea have had a horrible 22/23 season shown best by the fact they have had four managers this season already, and at this rate who would rule out a fifth (Even if there are only three league games left to play). Chelsea have astonishingly only in recent weeks confirmed their Premier League status for the 23/24 season.
Interim Manager Frank Lampard since taking over as caretaker manager on the 6th of April has one win, one draw and six defeats in his eight games in charge a win rate of only 12.5%! With three games to play, they currently are eleventh and could fall to as low as fourteenth if results go against them in the final few weeks.
On the bright side, they have four points in their last two games, but Man City should be far too good for them.

Man City v Chelsea Preview
Man City’s Attack
Man City have the best attack in the Premier League this season with a staggering 92 goals in 35 games which is an average of 2.62 goals per match. This attack is led by the freak of nature that is Erling Haaland, who has scored a staggering 36 goals and contributed 7 assists in his 33 league matches.
Aside from Haaland (even if Chelsea stop him) Man City have a dearth of attacking options at their disposal with playmaker Kevin De Bruyne scoring 7 goals and giving 18 assists in 30 games and Phil Foden has 10 goals and 5 assists.
Chelsea’s defence has conceded 41 goals this season an average of 1.17 goals per match which is good enough for the third-best defence with Man United behind Newcastle who has only conceded 32 goals and Man City who has only conceded 31 goals.
However, in their last five league matches they have been poorer conceding 10 goals in their last 5 matches which is an average of 2.0 goals per match. Chelsea will need to play an aggressive defensive game if they are to stand any chance at the weekend.
Despite the hundredths of millions that have been invested into the Chelsea squad much of which was in attacking areas their record this season has been extremely poor this season with just 36 goals scoring an average of 1.02 goals per match across their 35 matches only three teams in the league have scored fewer goals Southampton (31), Everton (32) and Wolves (30).
In their last five games, they have been slightly better though, with seven in their last five league matches an average of 1.4 goals per game.
Man City’s Defence
Man City’s defence has conceded 31 goals this season an average of 0.88 goals per match which is the best defence in the division. This is very much because an attack is the best form of defence for Guardiola’s side and being dominant in possession means they give up very few chances.
In their last five league matches they have only conceded 2 goals which is an average of only 0.4 goals per match suggesting their defensive unit is only getting stronger as the season reaches its climax.
