Both Chelsea and Manchester City have played in the Champions League this week. They’ve done well and won their games. Their meeting in the Premier League is bound to be one of the most important derbies of the season.
However, Antonio Conte believes that the way the game has been set up is not fair to his team. Chelsea played yesterday and get less rest ahead of their game against City. Conte believes that when organizing the game this should have been taken into account.
Regardless, the game is to bring together two of the top favorites to win the EPL this season. Chelsea won the competition last season, but need to step up their game for this year. On the other hand, Manchester City has dominated the contest thus far and sits in first place (tied with Manchester United) and will look to further improve.
