Pep Guardiola preview

"Chelsea in the last many years have been an incredible top team.

"From the beginning (Frank Lampard's) team play really good. He is consistent in his ideas and the results are there. I don’t know him very well, but a little bit and got info of him here and he is an excellent person. Playing the way they play is perfect for English football.

"(Transfer embargo) maybe helped. But Chelsea have invested big on young players over a long period with Frank Arnesen and so on.

Last time out

Manchester City picked up their first piece of silverware in our historic Fourmidables campaign with a penalty shootout win over Chelsea in the Carabao Cup final back in February.

The main talking point from the match, which had finished goalless, came from Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa refusing to be substituted by manager Mauricio Sarri.

But it was Raheem Sterling who had the final say, sweeping home the deciding spot-kick to earn us a 4-3 penalty win.
