But in the Champions League, it will be their very first battle and as we speak, Pep’s team will not give up so easily.
# Man City Key Players:
Man City’s current skipper is the Brazilian midfielder Fernandinho. Now, if we look at the squad, the team is most balanced in the season it seems. In the last season, they had lackings in the defence but now, their defences have become stronger when Pep has included a couple of new players. When to say the top stars of the squad, they have Ruben Dias, Kyle Walker who are the top-rated defenders. If we look at the midfield section Ilkay Gundogan and the top-rated Belgium midfielder Kevin de Bruyne who is the vice-captain of the team.
Besides, Phil Foden is also a top-rated midfielder and the coach might ground him in the next match. Now, they have top-rated forwards also in the squad. The Brazilian Jesus, Argentine Sergio Aguero, English Raheem Sterling, and in form Riyad Mahrez. Mahrez has scored two goals in the 2nd leg of the semi-final of the UCL against PSG.
# Chelsea Key Players:
Chelsea has come to the season with all-new attractive looks. Not, we are not talking about the style but the performance. Under the new boss Thomas Tuchel, they are now in tremendous form. The players are doing great. They have also top-rated players and young talents. The German defender Antonio Rudiger, the Spanish Marcos Alonso and another Spaniard Cesar Azpilicueta who is the current captain of the team.
However, the former PSG captain Thiago Silva is in the squad of the Blues now and he is the 3rd captain. Besides, N’Golo Kante, Jorginho all are top-rated players so far. If we are to look at their forward section they have the German young talent Timo Werner, the French Giroud and the English star Tammy Abraham. Timo is passing a very great time at Stamford Bridge.
The prediction of the game seems harder than thought. Both of them are the English giants and used to know each other too well. Yes, both two teams have a strong and balanced squad. And of course, Man City is a little ahead of the Blues but when to consider the head to head facts, the Blues are ahead of them. Still, our prediction is Man City 2 – 1 Chelsea.
