Premier League Predictions: Chelsea vs. Man City in early title tussle

Premier League Predictions: Chelsea vs. Man City in early title tussle”

Marcos Alonso believes Alvaro Morata is an excellent addition to the Chelsea squad, but admits he was sad to see Diego Costa leave.

CHELSEA manager Antonio Conte has said that the serious injury to Sergio Aguero will not change his preparation for Manchester City.

The Argentinean was reported to have been travelling in a taxi in Amsterdam after attending a concert on Thursday when the accident happened.

"It's also about character, going to Stamford Bridge against the champions to play our game".

"I'm sorry for the situation and I hope Sergio is feeling good".

Conte says it is natural for such talented players to have such a rapport.

"Honestly, I'm not anxious", he said. 21 goals scored in six league games, including 11 in their last two, makes it hard for any team to stop the Man City juggernaut, and with the partnership between Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus growing every week we may not have even seen the best of City yet. They are men, they have families and children and I think that it is important to give them responsibility. The players are not kids. They are arguing that the sharing arrangement helps them to sign high-quality players and keep the league, as Scudamore describes it, "competitive and compelling" and therefore attractive on TV. "Then, for sure, they have to make the best decisions for themselves, for the club, for everyone".

Pep Guardiola's side face their biggest test of the season so far when they travel to London on Saturday to take on a Chelsea side that is brimming with confidence after their dramatic 2-1 victory over Atletico Madrid in the Champions League on Wednesday.

City remain a serious threat to Chelsea without Aguero.

Chelsea did the double over Guardiola's side last season and are now third in the league on 13 points after six games. "Pep is a really good coach and I follow his games".

The 24-year-old was instrumental in the Blues' midweek fight back, netting the equaliser following Antoine Griezmann's penalty which put the hosts ahead, before Michy Batshuayi sealed all three points in the final minute of second-half stoppage time.

"Yes, he [Morata] is contention for tomorrow", said the Blues boss.

City have been in sparkling form of late but will come up against the defending champions, who have found their feet again after their opening-day set-back.

"And they look a force, they look strong in every single position".

Morata was an injury doubt after hurting his foot against Atletico Madrid in the week, while Hazard is only just returning to action after breaking his ankle in the summer.

On Hazard, Conte added: "If he was able to play one game like Atletico it means that he is ready to play now with great continuity".

It's another packed weekend in the Premier League but how will the matches go?
