Football fans can look forward to one of the most anticipated and crucial matches of the season on Saturday, when Chelsea FC, the European Champions, travel to Stamford Bridge to take on the Champions of England. The match will kick off at 12:30 p.m. and will be the most anticipated and crucial of the season.
This will be a rematch of the Uefa Champions League final match from last season, in which Chelsea came from behind to win against all odds. Many people were surprised that Chelsea did not win that match, despite the fact that they had beaten Manchester City twice in the previous few weeks building up to the final in Portugal. Chelsea won, making it three victories in a row over Pep Guardiola's City.
It appears that Thomas Tuchel has devised a strategy for defeating the man who he used to admire while he was still fighting his way up to the upper echelons of club football. The German is a major lover of Pep's work, but it is a mutual admiration society.
On the other hand, I have two reasons to assume that Pep will be less than enthusiastic about this game on Saturday night. In addition to Pep, a large number of City players will be less than enthused about the prospect of traveling to Stamford Bridge and facing Chelsea.
My Two Reasons Are Below:
1. They Don't Look Ready To Get Revenge
Chelsea was one of Manchester City's biggest disappointments last season, and they will be looking to exact retribution this season. The only difficulty is that they don't appear to be prepared to do so at this time.
2. No one has figured out how to defeat this Chelsea team yet.
Chelsea are currently unbeaten in all competitions since the start of the season and do not appear to be a team that can be stopped at this time.
What are your thoughts? Is Pep's team in with a chance of beating this Chelsea team on Saturday?
