Pep Guardiola makes Chelsea claim ahead of important EPL showdown at Etihad

Guardiola makes Chelsea claim ahead of Saturday clash

Manchester City host Chelsea this weekend, and City boss, Pep Guardiola has admitted he’s wary of Chelsea’s recent form.

The Blues appear to have turned the corner once again, after bouncing back from consecutive defeats to Liverpool and Wolves, to beat Aston Villa and Crystal Palace 3-1, each.

Guardiola believes there’s renewed spirit and vigour in Mauricio Pochettino’s side, who he also says are now playing with a ‘huge’ personality.

“It’s one game at a time. Now it is Chelsea,” the Spaniard told reporters after Man City’s 3-1 Champions League win against FC Copenhagen on Tuesday night.

“They played really well against Aston Villa and yesterday, in the hotel, we watched the game against Crystal Palace.

“They played with huge personality. Now we recover and focus on Chelsea.”

Meanwhile, Guardiola has also confirmed that Bernardo Silva and Jack Grealish are doubts for the upcoming match against the Blues at the Etihad stadium.

Pep Guardiola led his Man City side to a 4-4 draw with Chelsea in the reverse fixture at Stamford Bridge.
