Chelsea travel to the Liberty Stadium to face Swansea City on Saturday and the Blues need to improve on their unconvincing win against Newcastle if they are to seal all three points.
City entertain Arsenal on Sunday afternoon in what we can expect to be the highlight of the upcoming weekend.
Manuel Pellegrini’s men will need to stop Alexis Sanchez, who is in great form, having added another two goals to his impressive tally of 12 in the league in the Gunners’ 3-0 win against Stoke on Sunday.
It’s unclear whether City talisman Sergio Aguero will start in the game this weekend but he made his return to action at Goodison Park last weekend and his return comes at the perfect time for the champions.
Manchester City’s home record this season: Played 10 – Won 7 – Drawn 2 – Lost 1
The Citizens haven’t lost a league game in 12 now and will hope for a similar result to last season’s against Arsenal as they won 6-3 in an incredible game at the Etihad.
Chelsea can go five points clear at the top of the table before City play on Sunday, but the pressure is on both sides and the weekly battle between the two is certainly an exciting one.
Diego Costa found his goalscoring touch once again after finding the back of the net in the 2-0 win over Newcastle and he will be the one to watch in the upcoming game with Swansea.
Chelsea’s away record this season: Played 11 – Won 5 – Drawn 4 – Lost 2
Chelsea haven’t been at their best away from home this season, but their 100% home record is keeping them just in front of City at this point.
They lost their last away game in the league at Spurs in that 5-3 thriller, and haven’t won away from home since before Christmas.
Our weekend’s Premier League predictions for the upcoming round of matches will be out towards the end of the week, so stay tuned!
Who do you think will end this weekend at the top of the Premier League table?
