Manchester City faces Chelsea in the third round of the EFL Cup

Manchester City will be looking to continue their winning start to the season when they host Chelsea in the EFL Cup on Wednesday night. Pep Guardiola’s side has made a blistering start to the campaign, winning all three of their opening games in all competitions.

Chelsea, on the other hand, has endured a mixed start to the season and will be looking to return to prior success after a disappointing 0-1 loss to Arsenal at the weekend. Given City’s form so far this season, they will be the favourite to win Wednesday’s game, but Chelsea will be hopeful of causing an upset.

The Blues have an excellent recent record against City, winning three of the last five meetings between the two sides. However, City has won the previous two meetings between the clubs. The game promises to be an intriguing contest between two of the Premier League’s biggest clubs, and it will be a good test of City’s title credentials. City will be without Joao Cancelo defender, suspended after being sent off in the weekend’s Premier League game against Fulham. Chelsea midfielder Jorginho is a doubt for the game with a foot injury. Despite Chelsea’s good recent record against City, the Blues will be the underdogs going into Wednesday’s game. City has been in superb form so far this season, and Chelsea will need to be at their best if they are to cause an upset.
