Stamford Bridge will be the battleground between two favourites for the Premier League title on Saturday as Chelsea host Manchester City.
Chelsea sit top of the table following an almost impeccable start to the season and look ready to mount a serious title challenge under Thomas Tuchel.
On the other hand, Southampton held defending champions City to a 0-0 draw at the Etihad last weekend but they are only three points back.
Both teams are expected to bring on the firecracker to have an edge in the title race in what is a repeat of last season’s Champions League Final.

Chelsea vs Manchester City is scheduled for an 1:30pm CAT kick-off at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
