After a shock defeat from Wolverhampton, Chelsea were again displaced from the top 3 in the standings, and farther away from the top of the standings. Therefore, the Blues must immediately clean up and look optimistically for the next match with more mature preparation. Interestingly, in the next match in the Premier League, the squad directed by Maurizio Sarri will face the top and the defending champion, Manchester city. The match titled the 15th Matchdays Premier League will take place on Sunday night, December 9, 2018.
As we said, Chelsea were surprisingly defeated when they visited Wolverhampton Wanderers Headquarters on the 15th Matchdays of the morning (06/12). In fact, in the match, the Blues had a superior first when the game entered the 18th minute through a goal scored by Ruben Loftus Cheek, unfortunately in the second half the hosts managed to reverse the position through goals from Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota. As a result, a 1-2 defeat made the team made by Maurizio Sarri once again displaced from the top 3 standings.
However, Chelsea must move on from the defeat, because later the match against Manchester City will be more difficult. Moreover, the match will take place at Stamford Bridge, which is the headquarters of the London Club’s pride. In terms of statistics, it is clear the superiority of Manchester city which packs 4 wins in its last five parties and is held in a draw once.
