Chelsea vs Manchester City – Premier League: live score, lineups and updates

Marilyn Dubinski Chelsea FC

Chelsea will hope to kickstart their 2021 with a morale-boosting win over Manchester City on Sunday afternoon as Frank Lampard locks horn with Pep Guardiola.

The home side have endured a sticky patch of form of late after initially looking like favourites for the Premier League crown – with just one win in their last five games – and face a tough test against a dangerous City side who are finding their feet.  

Guardiola’s team had a worrysome start to the 20-21 campaign but have picked up form and have not tasted defeat since a 2-0 loss to Spurs in November. The club have been rocked by a spate of positive Covid tests but the Spanish boss will be optimistic his available players will remain focused on the task at hand.
