Sky Sports pundit 'hopes' Chelsea get a draw against Man City

Former Arsenal star is predicting an entertaining game in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon

Football pundit Paul Merson has predicted a challenging match for Chelsea as they prepare to face Manchester City in the upcoming Premier League game. This article delves into the reasons behind Merson's prediction, the recent performances of both teams and the potential outcomes of this highly anticipated match.

Chelsea have been on a roll, recently securing a 4-1 victory over Tottenham, their London rivals. This win propelled them to the tenth position in the Premier League. However, the upcoming match against Manchester City, the current table-toppers, is expected to be a stern test for Mauricio Pochettino’s side.

Manchester City have been in top form themselves, winning their last five games consecutively. Their most recent victory was against Young Boys in the Champions League. Their 6-1 triumph over Bournemouth last weekend further solidified their position at the top of the table.

The last time Chelsea managed to score against Pep Guardiola’s side was in the 2021 Champions League final. Kai Havertz’s goal in that match secured Chelsea's third European title. However, replicating such a performance against Manchester City's current form will be a daunting task.

Paul Merson gives predictions for Chelsea vs Man City

Merson, who accurately predicted Chelsea’s win against Tottenham, believes that Chelsea will face a tough task pulling off another victory against Manchester City, but he does see the potential for a draw.

Sky Sports pundit, Paul Merson, told Sportskeeda:

"I was bullish last week when I said Chelsea were going to beat Tottenham. I said it because Chelsea like teams coming at them. I think there’ll be some outstanding battles all over the pitch."

"Chelsea will cause City problems and vice versa. But I still don’t see the Blues winning this one. I’d indeed be shocked if they won this one."

"That’s only because Manchester City have so many game-changers on their side. They are spoilt for choice as always."

"I just don’t see how any team will finish above Manchester City this season. I’m hoping that Chelsea get a draw here."

The upcoming Chelsea vs Manchester City match promises to be a thrilling encounter. While Chelsea has been impressive in their recent games, Manchester City's winning streak and game-changers make them a formidable opponent. Regardless of the outcome, football fans can expect an exciting match filled with outstanding battles on the pitch.

Chelsea vs Man City will be broadcast live on TV and online by Sky Sports. Fans can watch on Sky Sports Premier League or via live streaming with the Sky Go app.
