Chelsea v Manchester City: match preview | Premier League

This game was under threat due to an outbreak of Covid-19 in Manchester City’s squad that caused their trip to Everton to be postponed last Monday. As it stands, however, it is set to go ahead after City recorded no further positive tests. The challenge for Pep Guardiola will be coping with five players having to self-isolate. Frank Lampard, under pressure after a poor run, will sense a chance for Chelsea to capitalise. Jacob Steinberg
