Chelsea VS Manchester C match analysis

Chelsea Doubtful: Alex (knee) Injured: Benayoun (Achilles) Man City Injured/unavailable: Given (shoulder), K Toure (suspended), Zabaleta (compassionate leave) If either of these sides harbour any hopes of challenging for the title then this is a 'must win' game. However, both will probably believe that that's beyond them and their focus is likely to concentrate on consolidating their place in the top four. Mancini will be setting out not to lose the match whilst Chelsea know that a win will lift them above their opponents. City's recent form on the road hasn't been good with just two points from their last four Premier League away fixtures plus a draw and a defeat in their last two Europa League away legs. Similarly, aside from the home win over United, Chelsea have struggled against big sides with their most recent disappointment being the goalless draw against Copenhagen at Stamford Bridge. Torres is yet to score for his new club and the jury's still out, as well as Ancelotti, as to their best strike partnership. This is obviously one of those games either side is capable of winning but if Mancini adopts the negative tactics expected, a draw looks to be on the cards. I think this match will draw.
