ENGLAND – Chelsea legend, Pat Nevin has predicted this weekend’s Premier League clash between Frank Lampard’s side and Manchester City.
According to Nevin, Chelsea has “little or nothing to lose” when they take on Pep Guardiola’s side at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday evening.
Chelsea head to the game following a 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace in their last fixture, while Man City was defeated 3-1 by Liverpool.
Writing in his column for Chelsea’s official website, Nevin said: “City are currently like a wounded animal, desperate to make amends for their mauling at Anfield two weeks ago.
“On top of this, the game is away from home where City only lost three games in the two previous Premier League campaigns.
“Even so, I must admit to looking forward to this game and I am not in the least apprehensive.
“Every challenge these kids have been set, and there have been many huge ones already this season as detailed above, they have faced up to with bravery and the same ‘can-do’ attitude every time.
“We are so far ahead of the expectation curve that this is almost a free hit with little or nothing to lose for us. City, on the other hand, have everything to lose.
“If they do not pick up all three points then Liverpool might already be almost out of sight by the end of our game if Jurgen Klopp’s men beat Palace at Selhurst Park earlier in the day.”
