This is why Manchester City will beat Chelsea – pundit

CHARLIE NICHOLAS thinks Manchester City have enough in the tank to beat Chelsea on Saturday.

The former Arsenal and Celtic forward turned pundit believes quality of possession will be the difference at The Emirates.

Chelsea are on a seven game winning streak, conceding just one goal in the process.

City have won three out of the last four Premier League fixtures and one point behind table-toppers Chelsea in third.

Antonio Conte

While Nicholas has been impressed with Antonio Conte’s men, he can see City’s quality shining through.

He told Sky Sports: “With this new three at the back situation, with Chelsea liking [David] Luiz to step into midfield, it’s attractive in a certain way, but don’t think it’s creative in midfield.

“It’s workmanlike. [Victor] Moses on the right and [Marcos] Alonso on the left is clever, because he’s fallen back on what he prefers.

“[Diego] Costa, I’ve not always been his greatest fan, but his work-rate and goals recently have been impressive.

“[Eden] Hazard is back to form, but I think you can stop them.

“City will have a lot of possession, I know Spurs had a lot of possession against Chelsea and got beaten, but I can see a different outcome here.
