Manchester City is in amazing form in all competitions, and they would like to continue that when they play Chelsea today at the Etihad Stadium. Their previous game in the Premier League was spectacular at Stamford Bridge in November as the game ended 4-4. Manchester City is third in the Premier League table, while Chelsea is 10th in the table.

Man City have won their last ten games in all competitions. They just come off a 3-1 win against FC Copenhagen in the 1st leg of the Round of 16 of the Champions League. Their last Premier League game was a 2-0 win at home against Everton. A win today could bring them up to 55 points in the league and place second if they win by three goals or more against Chelsea. The title race is tight between them, Arsenal, and Liverpool. Aston Villa is just creeping up behind them, as well as Spurs, if Man City doesn't get three points today.

Chelsea looks to be in better form after poor performances against Liverpool and Wolves. Their last two games were 3-1 wins in the FA Cup and in the Premier League. They advanced to the fifth round of the FA Cup after beating Aston Villa 3-1 at Villa Park. Their last Premier League game was a 3-1 win against Crystal Palace away from home as well. This game makes it three away games in a row, and a win against Man City could push them to 9th in the table with 37 points.
