Previous results have shown that Manchester City at home, came out on top against the Blues, for instance the 2-0 victory in 2012/13 season and a 2-1 win in the Year City eventually won the Premier League title.

City have been dominant at home and Chelsea must find a solution to end the resurgence of Manuel Pellegrini’s side.

City will be without Sergio Aguero due to a hamstring injury ruling him out for a month, which means Edin Dzeko and Alvaro Negredo may lead the attack.

Chelsea striker Fernando Torres is still not fit enough to start at the Etihad, leaving Jose Mourinho with Samuel Eto’o and Demba Ba to lead the line.
