Manchester City have won the last four meetings against Chelsea at the Etihad, stretching back to the 2008-09 season – Carlos Tevez and Yaya Toure sealing a 2-0 win in the last of those fixtures.
Chelsea inflicted one of four away defeats on Manchester City in the Premier League earlier this season – winning 2-1 in late October – Andre Schurrle and Fernando Torres either side of Sergio Aguero’s leveller.
Chelsea’s last ‘double’ against City came in the 2008-09 season.
Manchester City have won eight games in a row in the league for the first time since 1946-47.
The last time a City side won nine games in succession was in 1911-12 and 1912-13. Four at the tail end of the 1911-12 season, five at the beginning of the 1912-13 campaign.
Edin Dzeko has scored four goals in the last five PL games for City – he has three in a row but has never scored four in a row since moving to England.
City have scored four or more goals in 14 league and cup matches this season in domestic and European football.
Alvaro Negredo has scored 16 goals in his last 13 competitive appearances at the Etihad Stadium.
Chelsea had won their last five games before drawing against West Ham in midweek.
A win would make Chelsea the first team to do the double over Manchester City in the PL since Everton in 2010-11.
Only Manchester United and Liverpool have breached the Blues’ goal in the last seven matches (5 clean sheets)
They have only conceded 20 goals, the best record in the Premier League at present.
Top scorer Eden Hazard has already matched his tally of nine league goals for last season.
Jose Mourinho’s side have won four games from losing positions, more than any other PL team so far.
It was a tough game for both teams, and now they are both tied up on the second spot. They’ve been unbeatable and played very well for the past couple of weeks but who deserves to be on the second spot? I’m so excited for week 25! 🙂
