Barry relishing Chelsea showdown

Published Add your comment

Manchester City midfielder Gareth Barry is preparing for a fierce tussle with Chelsea on Monday.

City may travel to Stamford Bridge as leaders of the Barclays Premier League but Barry has noted the Londoners' return to form over the past week. Chelsea followed up a win at Newcastle by producing their best performance of the season on Tuesday to crush Valencia and qualify for the last 16 of the Champions League.

City, by contrast, endured the disappointment of elimination from that competition, but Barry said: "It is set up for a great game on Monday. They have picked their form up and have had two great performances and two big wins. It is going to be a tough game for us at Stamford Bridge, it always is."
