With City so far ahead, even a loss to second-placed Chelsea wouldn’t exactly derail their own title push, although a win would put the west London side out of contention.
Frankly, Pep Guardiola’s sides just aren’t letting 13-point leads slip away.
Still, Chelsea can obviously look back on their Champions League triumph over the Champions and have recently returned to form after a difficult December.
A true heavyweight showdown, here’s everything you need to know.

Manchester City vs Chelsea Prediction
This is where it gets tricky.
Chelsea have proven they can beat City under Thomas Tuchel, but Guardiola’s side are usually so strong at home. Back in December, it might have seemed fair to suggest the champions would go on to win, but Chelsea’s recent improvement is worth noting.
