Manchester City must feel like they’re jumping out of the frying-pan and into the fire. The Citizens struggled to get out of second gear during a 2-2 draw with Arsenal on Sunday but now find themselves visiting the Premier League’s champions in waiting, Chelsea, just three days later.
Of course, the Citizens could still have something to say about that and the good news is that the Blues lost to Crystal Palace at the weekend, the kind of anomalous result amid an otherwise stellar season that could induce an end-of-campaign wobble – just in time for City coming to town.
But regardless of the result in FootballFanCast’s Fixture in Focus this week, both sides look set to be well in the mix for the Premier League title once again next season – so signing a key player from Wednesday’s opposition this summer would not only strengthen each managers’ squad, but also weaken a direct divisional rival.
With that in mind, we have a curious question for Manchester City supporters; which Chelsea stars would you like to see Pep Guardiola pinch from Stamford Bridge this summer? Let us know by voting below, giving each Blues player a thumbs up or thumbs down.
