Chelsea need a victory in this tournament, like air. Too often, “pensioners” have recently disappointed their fans. In the last six official matches, the Blue lost three times, and two of these defeats were devastating. First, “Chelsea” lost 0: 4 to the modest “Bournemouth”, then won back in the Premier League on the “Huddersfield” (5:0).
Manchester City continues to move forward in all the tournaments in which this club takes part. The “citizen” won 13 of the 14 previous official matches, and this Wednesday they managed to put the squeeze on Schalke in the last minute, having won a comfortable victory away (3:2). In other meetings this month, Josep Guardiola’s team beat Arsenal (3:1) and Everton (2:0), defeated Newport (4:1) and destroyed Chelsea (6:0).
