Chelsea fans expecting the worst ahead of Manchester City clash

This time last season Chelsea were strong title contenders in the Premier League, but now, Antonio Conte’s side are fighting for a top-four finish.

The West London outfit are streets behind league leaders Manchester City, who have a 16-point advantage over the rest of the pack.

In fact, the Blues sit fifth in the standings, a whopping 22 points adrift of Pep Guardiola’s men.

Securing Champions League football for next season is not out of the question for Chelsea, though, as they are two points off the top four.

Tottenham Hotspur currently occupy the final spot, but only six points separate second from fifth.

This Sunday could play a big part in Chelsea’s top-four hopes as they take on Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

Conte’s side will be desperate to respond given that they lost 2-1 to Manchester United last weekend.

However, they face a Guardiola team that outplayed Arsenal twice in the past week – earning 3-0 victories in the EFL Cup final and in the league.

Ahead of the fixture, a number of Chelsea fans are fearing the worst.
