Graeme Le Saux is backing Manchester City to ease to a 2-0 victory over Chelsea in their Premier League clash at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening.

The defending Premier League champions will host the current leaders in what should be a mouthwatering clash between two of the division’s best teams.

Chelsea won the top-flight crown with two games to spare last season after finishing seven points clear of their closest challengers Tottenham Hotspur.

Manchester City have barely put a foot wrong in the current campaign following a return of 16 points from their opening six games.

The Citizens were 5-0 winners against Liverpool at The Etihad earlier this month, before scoring 11 goals without reply in commanding wins against Watford and Crystal Palace.

Chelsea lost 3-2 to Burnley in their Premier League opener at Stamford Bridge but the west London side are unbeaten in their last five games to move to within three points of the leaders.

Former Blues defender Le Saux believes Manchester City will lay down a marker in the Premier League title race with a confident win against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge this weekend.

“Chelsea at home to Manchester City, I think Manchester city are going to win,” Le Saux told Betfair. “I think they’re probably going to win 2-0.”

Chelsea came from behind to beat Atletico Madrid 2-1 mid-week in the Champions League, while Manchester City were 2-0 winners against Shakthar Donetsk.

Graeme Le Saux was speaking on behalf of TAG Heuer to promote the TAG Heuer Premier League Pressure Test. TAG Heuer is the Official Timekeeping Partner of the Premier League.
