Man City v Chelsea live score updates, Premier League 2022 highlights

Manchester City could all but win the 2021-22 Premier League title with 16 games to go if the defending champions can beat second-placed Chelsea at home on Saturday.

Pep Guardiola’s side have built a 10-point lead over their nearest rivals thanks to an 11-game league winning streak that coincided with Chelsea losing points recently with six draws and one defeat in the same period.

After a strong start to the campaign, Chelsea’s momentum was halted for a long time by a combination of COVID-19 cases and injuries. Although the reigning European champion has fallen behind, a victory at the Etihad Stadium would revive his title hopes just days after qualifying for the Carabao Cup final.

Chelsea had Man City’s number last year after manager Thomas Tuchel took charge of the Blues in January 2021. Within weeks he guided the Blues to a Champions League final victory over City and a victory by knockout in the FA Cup semi-finals.

Manchester City got some revenge this season with a 1-0 win at Stamford Bridge in September on Matchday 6. But the ultimate reward would be virtually knocking Chelsea out of another Premier League run. Chelsea last won the EPL in 2016-17; Man City have won three championships since then and a fourth may not be far behind if the result continues on Saturday.
