The Premier League’s fallen champions and the division’s last Champions League hope go head to head on Saturday. The Premier League’s fallen champions and the premier league’s last Champions League hope go head to head on Saturday. Over the last few weeks, the engrossing Premier League title
race has taken centre stage during the weekend’s drama.
This weekend, however, expect two giants to steal the headlines, when Chelsea host Manchester City at Stamford Bridge.
The battle is a head to head between the fallen heavyweights of the Premier League and still its reigning champions and
the side who remain the division’s last great hope in the Champions League.
The Citizens head into the weekend’s game on the back of their magnificent midweek triumph over Paris Saint-Germain.
While the French champions saw off Guus Hiddink’s Chelsea in the Round of 16 to advance to the final eight, Laurent Blanc’s side were unable to do the business against the Sky Blues. De Bruyne has a point to prove, and don’t be surprised to see him compound his former employers’ concerns with a star turn at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
In light of City’s midweek exertions, it would be little surprise if Pellegrini shuffled his pack and used the explore the depth and breadth of his squad.
These two giants may not be competing for the major honours domestically this season, but expect this pair to put on a show this Saturday.
