Manchester City v Chelsea: match preview | premier league

Manchester City would surely ruin Chelsea’s title challenge if they beat them as each would have 16 games to play but the champions were 13 points clear. Pep Guardiola has other Covid cases to contend with despite the manager not revealing who they are. Thomas Tuchel is highly rated by Guardiola and following Chelsea’s 1-0 defeat in the second leg, Tuchel’s plan to return the champions to their home turf should fascinate. Jaime Jackson
