Manchester City vs. Chelsea could well be the game that decides this Premier League season’s winner after Manchester United vs. Liverpool was postponed due to Super League unrest. 

Manchester City goes into this match having just secured their place in the Champions League final by fending off PSG 2-0. A win against Chelsea would secure the team their third Premier League title win in four years, so it’s all to play for this Saturday. Manchester City goes into the match on 25-5-4, with a comfortable lead at the top of the league on 80 points overall.

Chelsea will go into Saturday’s match having just faced Real Madrid for the second time in the Champions League semi-final on Wednesday night. They defeated Man City 1-0 when the two teams last clashed on April 17 in the FA Cup, and will need to beat them a second time to stop Man City being crowned the winners there and then. Chelsea is currently in fourth place in the league table on 17-10-7, with a total of 61 points.
