Three things Chelsea must do to beat Pep Guardiola's Manchester City

Three things Chelsea must do to beat Pep Guardiola's Manches

Chelsea will welcome Manchester City at home looking to puncture City's title defence especially as the Citizens are on the same point as Arsenal following the Gunner's win over Burnley on Saturday.

Chelsea must be strategic in order to overcome Pep Guardiola's side who are outright favourites going into this game.

But it remains to be seen if they would quench the confidence Chelsea may have acquired in the 1-4 thumping win against Tottenham Hotspur.

Following the epic match at hand, AllNews Nigeria evaluates the three things (3) Chelsea must do to beat visitors Manchester City at Stamford Bridge.

Take their chances

Matches are won by the number of goals scored as the case may be and Chelsea must be precise about their dealing against the Citizens.

Mauricio Pochettino must get his acts right in picking the right attacking system upfront in view of Nicolas Jackson and Raheem Sterling.

While the persons entrusted with the job of finding the back of the net should not fail to deliver by all means as that could be key in seeing them beating City at home.

Defend effectively

The Blues must have a resolute defence system as it would be a key to frustrating Manchester City's style of play.

Any defensive mix-up would be punished just as world-class Erling Haaland would be pleased with such kind of gifts.

They must form a solid defensive unit so as to ensure that whatever City throws at them is well absorbed and dealt with in aplomb.

Bring balance on the pitch

Finally, Chelsea must ensure they have got the right balance to handle Pep Guardiola's tactical dynamism. City known for their possession style of play would want to dictate the pace of the game and attack Chelsea in numbers.

But the home side tries to compete in the midfield after all they've got some quality players in midfield themselves.

Adopting a defensive strategy entirely wouldn't be good enough as it could cause the Chelsea side to concede late in the match.

That style will give City the calmness to build from the back and exploit weaknesses in the Chelsea defence.

But a touch of balance would suffix for the London side as they combine to perfection a definite attack play with resolute defending.
