in #neoxianlast year

Ahead of the massive Premier League match this Saturday evening, Frank Lampard's Chelsea FC are preparing to take on Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City. In a funny way, this match is a must win for both teams as each of them strive to stay above the other, and both try to attain points to get closer to Liverpool, who currently have an 8-point lead on the league table.

Chelsea is presently in 3rd position, while City occupies 4th, with only one point separating them. A win for either of the teams this weekend keeps them in contention for the top spot, but a draw in this match could see Liverpool's lead being fortified.

Both managers will be assessing the fitness of their team members as majority of them just returned from international duties. However, Pep Guadiola's side already has a boost as his number one goal keeper, Ederson will be back in the team as they face Chelsea.

Ederson picked up a thigh injury during a Champions League match against Atalanta three weeks ago, but has come to full recovery and set for a game that seems to be the epl showdown of the weekend.
