Manchester City are in the 1st position of the Premier League points table and have 25 wins and 80 points under their belt. They stand 13 points clear of second-placed Manchester United and are all set to win the title. In their previous Premier League encounter, City had trounced Crystal Palace 2-0. Sergio Aguero and Ferran Torres had netted goals for the Cityzens.
Chelsea have been a completely different unit under Thomas Tuchel. They have reached the Champions League finals after outclassing the Spanish giants, Real Madrid.
