Misfortunes never come singly! Manchester City official just confirmed Benjamin Mendy's knee ligament injury, and terrible news comes again.

Aguero car crash, City game smash?

The 29-year-old striker Sergio Aguero was reportedly injured in a car crash when he returning from a concert. Man City star is taking a vacation in Holland at that time.

Due to this car smash, Aguero will not appear in the massive fixture for Man City against their title contenders Chelsea at Stamford Bridge this weekend. Team selection problem comes to head coach Pep Guardiola while Antonio Conte is also worrying about their stamina. His side just finished a UEFA Champions League clash with La Liga giants Atletico de Madrid. They have got only one day to rest and prepare.

Two-time Champions League winner Guardiola's teaching career is shorter in comparison with Conte's. Both have done great jobs in their clubs. Who can have the last laugh in this contest?

'Tiki-taka' was nailed to Guardiola early in his career. From Barcelona to Bayern Munich, and now with Man City, his style of play needs to be admitted by the club's hierarchy. Tiki-taka is a style of play in football characterised by short passing and movement, working the ball through various channels, and maintaining possession. Pep once joked that "I loathe all that passing for the sake of it, all that tiki-taka", "I hate tiki-taka". Maybe that's because this kind of play style has been known very well by other clubs, or because of other reasons. But one thing is certain, Guardiola is a good coach in assigning players.

As for Conte, he used to play the squad of 3-5-2 when teaching in Juventus and Italy national team. Sometimes he changes the formation to 5-3-2. This kind of formation demands very high requirements with two wingers as well as defenders. Former Italian coach has carried out this style very well in the national team. Players would be able to make good performance under this manager.

Having taken over at Stamford Bridge, Conte may get the best choices to play his football. Alvaro Morata said, "Antonio Conte is tactically the best or one of the best".


Both Premier League giants sit in the of three spots after 6 rounds this season. Man City are now leading with 16 points in hand, 3 points clear to Chelsea. In their recent 10 encounters, the Blues have got 4 wins while the Blue Moon received 3 wins. It is not easy to determine a winner from the different styles.

Chelsea made a losing start to the league, but they kept unbeaten in the following 5 rounds and let their title defense back on track. 12 goals scored and 13 points lifted them in the 3rd place of table by far. Man City, however, maintained their unbeaten start with 5 wins and 1 draw, including 3 wins in a big margin. Such brilliant records have proved the Blue Moon's strong quality in both ends. Now they are just leading on the table of Premier League.

Goal machine Alvaro Morata has produced 6 goals in his 6 appearances for Chelsea this season by far. He is now in blistering condition after scoring a hat trick last round.

Aguero's missing has weakened Man City's overall strength. However, there is another forward star Gabriel Jesus in the squad. His performance will be crucial in this clash.


The AH line for this match is 0. Chelsea are the favourites with near short odds. They are very close according to major bookies in 1x2 Odds. Again, it's hard to tell.

To sum up, we expect Chelsea to remain unbeaten in this summit meeting, and it's also possible for them to win in AH.
