Chelsea will have a great opportunity to impress incoming manager Antonio Conte when they welcome Manchester City at the Stamford Bridge today, although the Blues will face a team in excellent form.
Manuel Pellegrini’s boys managed to outrun Paris Saint-Germain to reach the Champions League semi-finals for the first time in the club’s history and, with the team also aiming to confirm a top-four finish this term, the Citizens will arrive at Stamford Bridge highly motivated to thrash the hosts.
