Six of the Best!
As we prepare for the roller-coaster ride that a trip to play Manchester City will inevitably resemble, we`ve an array of statistics for you to mull over.
1 - Chelsea will arrive at the Etihad Stadium in good defensive form having kept clean sheets in their last 3 Premier League away games.
2 - The record books show that the Etihad Stadium hasn`t been a happy hunting ground for Chelsea in recent times with Chelsea having lost on their last 4 Premier League visits.
3 - Looking at the bigger picture though, no Premier League team has won more away games at Manchester City than Chelsea, we`ve 10 victories to our name.
4 - Manchester City appear to like playing on a Monday night as they are unbeaten in their last 6 fixtures, winning 5 and drawing 1. However, the last team to beat them on a Monday night was……….Chelsea, when we won 2-1 back in December 2011.
5 - With reference to Chelsea`s form in Monday night fixtures, 5 of our last 8 fixtures have ended in draws with 3 ending 0-0.
6 - City are in fine form at the Etihad Stadium having won the last 11 fixtures in a row.
Bring it on is all I`ll say!
