It’s the third round in the EFL Cup and this time out it’s a clash between two Premier League giants as Manchester City will host Chelsea Football club at the Etihad stadium. Now this is a one-off encounter cause whichever side wins this game will progress to the next round and the other side would get knocked out of the Cup.
Hence, there is no doubt that both teams would be giving it their all to come up ahead at the final whistle. Now coming into this game Chelsea aren’t in the best of form as they are coming off a 1-0 loss against Arsenal and they haven’t won their last 4 PL games which is simply astonishing.
Potter’s side surely need to get back to the winning momentum and win against a team like City would clearly make a statement that they are back, and hence this encounter is very important for the Blues.
However, beating Pep Guardiola’s side won’t be that easy cause they have been playing sensationally well. They are unbeaten in their last 5 matches in all competitions and they’ll definitely look forward to conite on their streak by beating Graham Potter’s side.
They are coming off a win against Fulham courtesy of a last-minute winner from the man himself Erling Braut Haaland. So the incredible amount of crowd support that they’ll be receiving and the quality that they have might just make them win this game. All in all, it’s a match that one cannot miss.
