Ian Wright is anticipating a high-tempo game between Chelsea and Manchester City at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening.

The defending Premier League champions will welcome the current leaders in what is the biggest game of the 2017-18 season so far.

Chelsea will be hoping to inflict upon Manchester City a first Premier League defeat of the season and move level on points with Pep Guardiola’s men.

The Blues are unbeaten in their last five Premier League games despite coming up against Arsenal, Everton and Tottenham Hotspur.

Chelsea will have been buoyed by their dramatic winner to secure a 2-1 win at Atletico Madrid in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

Manchester City have collected 16 points from their opening six games and have scored a staggering 16 times in their last three Premier League games.

Former Arsenal striker Wright believes Chelsea and Manchester City will play out a high tempo clash at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening.

“Chelsea will have to play the same high tempo game again,” Wright told BBC Radio 5 Live. “They’ll have to attack them as well. It’s going to be a great game.”

Chelsea beat Manchester City 3-1 at the Etihad Stadium in December 2016 to lay down a marker in the title race.

The Premier League title holders eased to a 2-1 win against Pep Guardioala’s men in a return fixture at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea signed six players in the summer transfer window.
