Chelsea to send out statement
Chelsea welcome a weakened Manchester City to Stamford Bridge on Saturday and will be looking to send out a statement.

The Premier League champions fell to a shock defeat on the opening day of the campaign when Burnley claimed a 3-2 win at the Bridge as Chelsea finished the game with nine men.

However, they bounced back to win four of their following five Premier League engagements, having been held to a goalless draw by Arsenal on home soil.

Chelsea only lost twice at home in the entire 2016-17 campaign, while they won the other 17 outings, and their form at Stamford Bridge played a huge role in helping them to the Premier League title.

Having already dropped four points from a possible nine in west London this season, Antonio Conte will be keen to see them get back on a steadier path this weekend.

Conte is likely to hand Eden Hazard his first Premier League start of 2017-18 after his impressive performance in the Champions League victory against Atletico Madrid on Wednesday.

Alvaro Morata, who already has six Premier League goals to his name, is set to continue leading the line as he looks to extend his fine goalscoring form.

Meanwhile, City remain unbeaten so far this term, winning five and drawing one of their six matches, and they currently sit top of the Premier League on goal difference.

The Citizens have been free-scoring with 21 goals to their name with Sergio Aguero bagging six and Gabriel Jesus chipping in with four.

However, Aguero is not available for the trip after being involved in a car crash in Amsterdam on Thursday night, which has left him with a broken rib.

Wing-back Benjamin Mendy has also been ruled out until April with an anterior cruciate ligament injury in his right knee, leaving Pep Guardiola short on options.

Central defender Vincent Kompany is still sidelined with a calf problem and Chelsea will be looking to take advantage of a depleted backline.

Chelsea’s ability to counter-attack swiftly could prove the difference on Saturday with City expected to dominate possession, and Conte will be keen to see his side use their pace to hit them on the break and a home win at n/a looks like a good option.

Kevin de Bruyne has been key to City’s success this term and the former Chelsea youngster may turn out to be the match winner back in familiar surroundings if he is allowed to pull the strings.

Chelsea did the double over City last season, with the last five meetings between the two having provided more than 2.5 goals in the game, which is priced atn/a and looks a very likely outcome.

Recommended Bet: More than 2.5 goals in the game n/a
