Michael Ballack reveals his prediction for Man City v Chelsea
Michael Ballack is expecting to see a 1-1 draw between Manchester City and Chelsea at The Etihad this lunchtime
Michael Ballack is expecting to see Chelsea play out a 1-1 draw with Manchester City in Saturday’s crunch Premier League clash at The Etihad.
Chelsea head into the game in fine form, having won all seven of their last Premier League games to leave them top of the table after 13 games of the new campaign.
Antonio Conte’s men have earned plenty of praise for their impressive performances in recent weeks as they notched up wins against the likes of Manchester United, Everton and Tottenham Hotspur.
However, the west London side are set for a stern test of their title credentials when they take on Pep Guardiola’s side at The Etihad on Saturday lunchtime.
And former Chelsea midfielder Ballack is expecting to see the two teams play out a 1-1 draw.
Speaking in an interview with Chelsea’s official Twitter account, Ballack said: “Hi Chelsea fans, great win against Tottenham, still top of the table.
“Really difficult away match against Manchester City, my prediction is 1-1.”
Chelsea finished 10th and without a trophy last season after a campaign to forget for the west London club.
