Although Graham Potter’s men did well in the Champions League, where they will face Borussia Dortmund in the round of 16, things are quite different in the Premier League. Chelsea are sitting 10th in the standings, with 25 points, 10 away from the top four teams, winning only one of their last seven league matches. Manchester CityMeanwhile, the Citizens will be willing to emerge victorious at Stamford Bridge to get closer to Arsenal, who are in the top spot with 44 points, eight more than their opponents but Pep Guardiola’s pupils have one game in hand. City go into the match having conceded in all of their four last Premier League games, only being able to keep a clean sheet in one of their last seven contests. However, the visitors defeated Chelsea in the EFL Cup (2-0) before the World Cup break, and the Citizens came out on top in both encounters during the 2021-22 league, with 1-0 wins over Chelsea.
Regardless, if City don’t contain Willian on Sunday, it will be curtains for their FA Cup ambitions. Kelechi IheanachoClive Brunskill/Getty ImagesYoung Nigerian Kelechi Iheanacho scored a hat-trick in 4-0 defeat of Aston Villa in the previous round of the FA Cup, so he’ll be hoping for a repeat performance at Stamford Bridge. With that much-publicised Champions League match in Kiev to follow in midweek, Iheanacho could be given a rare start against Chelsea as Manuel Pellegrini looks to rest Sergio Aguero.
It's an issue not lost on Chelsea head coach Graham Potter, who believes his side will need to be at the top of their game to best their visitors on Thursday. "We have to play well ourselves, that’s the key, " Potter said. "You have to understand the quality that they have and try to stop it, which sounds simple when I articulate it now but obviously in reality it’s not so straightforward.
Manchester City (4-2-3-1): Willy Caballero; Pablo Zabaleta, Nicolas Otamendi, Martin Demichelis, Angelino; Aleix Garcia, Fernando; Bersant Celina, Manu Garcia, Aleksandar Kolarov; Kelechi Iheanacho. Key Players WillianCatherine Ivill - AMA/Getty ImagesBy far Chelsea’s player of the season, Willian has been the man setting the tone in recent weeks. From assisting Diego Costa in the recent 5-1 demolition of Newcastle United to an encouraging display against Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday, the Brazilian is showing he’s Chelsea’s catalyst. Willian is the man who gets Chelsea moving forward, often being involved in everything positive they do. He has taken over from Eden Hazard in that regard, although he needs to score more goals.

Chelsea vs. Manchester City: Team News, Predicted Lineups, Live Stream, TV InfoOLI SCARFF/Getty ImagesBranislav Ivanovic says Chelsea’s FA Cup clash with Manchester City on Sunday will feel like a final. The sides meet at Stamford Bridge in the fifth round, and despite Chelsea’s struggles in the Premier League this term, it’s a tie that’s got plenty of fans excited as two of England’s biggest clubs come together. “It’s a massive game for us, but I think at the moment every game is massive for us, ” Ivanovic explained to Bleacher Report. “It’s similar to a final, and we have to forget about what happened in Paris [when Chelsea lost to Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday]. We have to focus on Man City as it’s a game we need to win. ”City have struggled of late themselves, losing back-to-back games in the league, which has meant their title credentials have taken a big hit.
It means Guus Hiddink must persevere with his new central-defensive partnership of Gary Cahill and Branislav Ivanovic. “Of course it’s a disappointment [that Terry won’t play] because he’s the leader of the team, ” Hiddink said on Friday. “On the other hand, I’m not going to complain or moan because the guys who are taking his place have my full confidence. [Against Paris Saint-Germain] they produced a decent performance.

Catherine Ivill - AMA/Getty ImagesTheir latest loss came at home to Tottenham Hotspur on Feb. 14. Rather than seeing it as a good time to face Manuel Pellegrini’s side, Ivanovic said he’s expecting the City players to come out all guns blazing to bounce back from their recent disappointments. “I’m not sure any time is good to play City, ” he said. “When the big teams lose a couple of games, you are always waiting for a reaction. It’s difficult to find a good opportunity to play them. “For sure they will be motivated. They have the Champions League coming up too [against Dynamo Kiev on Wednesday], so it will be an interesting game, and I hope we make the most of our home advantage.

”The FA Cup is one Chelsea’s best opportunities for silverware this term. They may be the reigning Premier League champions, but the Blues have lingered in the bottom half of the table all season. They’re not going to retain the title they won last year, leaving them with the FA Cup and Champions League to play for. Ivanovic said Chelsea aren’t thinking about silverware—they’re just trying to concentrate on rebuilding their season after a poor first half of the year.
Chelsea vs. Manchester City: Date, time, live stream and how to watch | DAZN News South AfricaThe teams meet on Matchday 19 of the Premier League season. Chelsea head into Thursday's match against Manchester City firmly in the midtable. The Blues are 10th in the Premier League, a full 10 points behind fourth-place Manchester United and nowhere near where they would have expected to be at this point in the season. Chelsea started 2023 with a draw (1-1 at Nottingham Forest) and are now looking to grab their first win of the new year.
Of course, the opposition will play a big part in whether the Blues can walk away with three points for the first time in 2023, and City have been a thorn in the Londoners' side in recent years — especially at Stamford Bridge, where City have won back-to-back league matches (as part of winning seven of the teams' last 10 Premier League meetings).
