Manchester City defender Pablo Zabaleta fears Chelsea could be at their most dangerous this weekend.
The Argentinian believes the appointment of Rafael Benitez as interim manager after a week of turmoil at Stamford Bridge could spark the Londoners back into life. That is something the champions and Barclays Premier League leaders are wary of ahead of their trip to west London on Sunday.
Zabaleta said: "It's a difficult moment for them but they now have a new manager in Rafa Benitez. When they are in a moment like this, it might seem they are easier to play against, but a new manager can make old players fresh again."
