LIVE UPDATES: Man City vs Chelsea

Click to read all about coronavirus →

Hello, good afternoon and welcome to a proper Super Sunday in the English Premier League title race.

Manchester City face their third Premier League title test in a gruelling week as the champions host Chelsea this afternoon. It's a huge clash at the Etihad today for a number of reasons.

Man City leapfrogged Liverpool into first place in the table on goal difference with wins over Arsenal (3-1) on Sunday and Everton (2-0) on Wednesday, though Jurgen Klopp's side went back on top by beating Bournemouth at Anfield.

Pep Guardiola knows that City will end the weekend above Liverpool with a win over Chelsea, but Maurizio Sarri's Blues - who are fighting for a top-four finish - will be confident of causing problems with Gonzalo Higuain and Eden Hazard in form.

A title-defining match?

Pep Guardiola believes today's clash will prove whether Man City are back on track in the title race or not.

City won the Premier League by a record margin last season but are involved in a tighter battle with Liverpool this time, while Spurs cannot be discounted.

City have already lost four games - twice as many as last term - but given the difficulties teams have had in retaining the title in recent years, Guardiola feels his side are very well placed.

Now he wants City to build on that to become the first team to win back-to-back league crowns in a decade.

Game kicks off at 4PM GMT. Stay with us for all the updates.
