The Manchester City versus Chelsea game this Saturday is shaping up to be a classic.
If last years two games are anything to go by then a win for City could be more likely than many people think.
City have strengthened in a number of areas and even though Chelsea are in top form, and seemingly unstoppable. But similar things we're being said before each defeat to the Sky Blues last season as well.
On paper the teams are both very strong with Chelsea perhaps better up front and City able to dominate the midfield, and that is something not many teams can hope to do against Chelsea with Essien fit and well.
There are going to be hard fought competitions across the whole field however both teams have excellent goalkeepers and defences so it is likely to be a low scoring affair.
The game is likely to be won or lost in one of these 5 key areas
