Pedro states his prediction for Man City v Chelsea

Pedro Rodriguez looks ahead to Chelsea's trip to Manchester City in the Premier League this weekend

Pedro has warned his Chelsea team-mates that they are in for a stern test of their Premier League title credentials when they take on Manchester City on Saturday lunchtime.

The west London side have earned plenty of praise for their impressive performances in recent weeks as they climbed their way to the top of the Premier League table.

The Spaniard scored Chelsea’s equaliser as the Blues came from a goal down to beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 at Stamford Bridge on Saturday night to maintain their one-point lead at the top of the table.

However, the west Londoners are set for another test of their title credentials when they take on Manchester City at The Etihad this weekend.

And Pedro has warned his team-mates that they are in for a difficult game when they take on Pep Guardiola’s men on Saturday afternoon.

Pedro is quoted as saying by The Daily Express: “This will be a difficult game for us.

“I don’t know if Manchester City will win the League under Pep or whether we can stop him.

“I just know it will be hard for us and the most important thing is to prepare.”
