Back in December 2016, Chelsea had completed a remarkable comeback to beat Mancheseter City 3-1 at Etihad Stadium.
Antonio Conte was in charge of west London club that defeated Pep Guardiola’s side in one of the best entertaining game in 2016/2017 campaign.
The Sky Blues made perfect start to the game and found themselves lead when Gary Cahill turned the ball into the back of his own net on the stroke of half time before the visitors took advantage of a host of missed chances from City to turn the game on its head.
Diego Costa out-muscled Nicolas Otamendi following a sublime ball Cesc Fabregas to smash home an equaliser.
Ten minutes later substitute Willian rubbed salt into the wound, as Chelsea launched a clinical counter attack, with the Brazilian rifling the ball into the far corner to take the lead for the first time and stun the home support.
With City piling men forward, Hazard was lethal on the break firing behind a desperate Claudio Bravo to seal the most vital of three points for the Blues.
Now, another contest set to hold at Etihad this weekend, although majority of Chelsea players that defeated City back then had left the club including manager but the Blues still had several exciting players to claim important victory at Etihad on Saturday.
Last season, the west London club defeat Pep Guardiola’s side three time, with including victory to claimed UEFA Champions League in Porto, but the case change this season, with the Sky Blues defeat Blues at Stamford Bridge this season in the Premier League.
This contest will be tough task for Thomas Tuchel’s men, who lost just one of their last 15 Premier League games (won eight, drawn six), going down 3-2 at West Ham in December.
However, the Blues have picked up just one win from their last five league games (drawn four), throwing away a lead in two of those four draws.
Manchester City, on the other hand won their last 11 Premier League games, their fifth such run of 11+ consecutive wins in the competition.
