Manchester City News and Form
Manchester City raced back to the top of the Premier League for the first time since mid-December as they beat Everton 2-0 at Goodison Park on Wednesday. That made it back to back wins for them in the top flight having beaten Arsenal on the weekend. So they did have that extra workload in midweek compared to Chelsea ahead of this clash. The positive week leaves Man City with six wins in their last seven league games. At home this season they hold a mightily impressive W12 L1 record.
The Citizens have averaged 3.3 goals per home league game this season and all but one of their fixtures at the Etihad have gone over 2.5 goals. 62% have made it over 3.5 goals. Manchester City have scored at least two goals in all home fixtures in the EPL this term. At the back, they have only taken one clean sheet in their last eight home fixtures. But still, they have averaged under a goal per game on home turf this season. Both teams have scored in 69% of their home league games now. 64% of their home goals conceded have been in the first half of fixtures. Man City’s home half time record is W10 D2 L1.

Chelsea News and Form
The Blues put a resounding 5-0 win on the board last time out, getting the victory over Huddersfield. Gonzalo Higuain got himself a brace in the game.

So the Blues are not carrying away form into this one. Away from home, this season Chelsea have posted a W7 D1 L4 record. All four defeats have been at sides currently in the top half of the table. If you look back a little further into Chelsea’s road form it is W3 L4 in their last seven.
Chelsea have averaged 1.6 goals per away game this season and 75% of their away fixtures have ended up over 2.5 goals. In total, the Blues have earned a clean sheet in 42% of their road games.
