Manchester City accepts Chelsea in the most interesting match of 29th round in the Premier League. The derby between two teams will play on the pitch at the stadium “Etihad Stadium” in Manchester on Wednesday (3/21/2012)
Manchester City conceded an embarrassing 1-0 loss to the minimum in his visit to the humble in Swansea last weekend and thus step aside for first place in the Premier League of its city rival Manchester United. So after a long period, during which students of Italian manager Roberto Mancini were leaders in the standings, just before the end of the season appear in catching up. Now led by his team ranked second in the table, with a total of 66 points, achieved with 21 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses, with goal difference 69-20. Difference to their temporary leader of the United swelled to four points, but “citizens” have a game fewer than his opponent, so have the opportunity to reduce their predinata only one point after izigraveneto a pending match. For the hard derby against Chelsea coach guide the hosts could not rely on the injured Vincent Kompany and Pablo Zabaleta. Remains questionable and treating injuries involving Gareth Barry, Joleon Lescott and, as they are likely to fall among the elect Roberto Mancini. In the upcoming match with “blue” in London is expected in the composition of Manchester City to come back and kicked nearly half a year striker Carlos Tevez.Personally City manager Roberto Mancini said he thinks the chance to give the 28-year-old striker, who has not played for his team in September last year when miff with his mentor after she refused to heat to enter the field against Bayern(Munich) in the match of the Champions League. So after nearly a half year absence from the first team, Tevez joining their training process saobtornitsi and even expected to hit the field against Chelsea.
Chelsea marked a considerable progress in their performances, having parted with the Portuguese coach Andre-Viyash Boash and his place was temporarily appointed Italian Roberto Di Matteo. It led the “blue” from London reached four consecutive victories in their last four matches in all competitions, particularly noteworthy was beating Napoli 4-1 in a Champions League match, thereby Londoners failed to qualify for quarterfinals race. The championship of England, Roberto Di Matteo has also started with a victory, scoring success with minimum 1-0 in their household of Stoke City and continues to battle with Arsenal for fourth place in the Premier League. Chelsea team now ranked fifth in the table and three points behind the “Gunners” who occupy the last place entitling participation in the strongest European club tournament Champions League. Grade of “blue” is now 49 points, achieved with 14 wins, 7 draws and 7 losses, with goal difference 48-32. For the upcoming heavy visit of Manchester City coach guide the guests there are no problems with his staff and will be able to choose from all the best for the derby with “citizens”. With problems in the camp guests are only two main central defenders John Terry and David Lewis, but their injuries are not serious and will be in line ahead of the derby against Manchester City. Over the weekend the team played for Chelsea and their quarterfinal match of the FA Cup, which imposed a categorical 5-2 over the team of Lester and thus qualified for the semifinals of the competition. This match will be remembered with two goals from Spanish striker Fernando Torres, who ended the run of 1541 minutes without a goal scored by the team of Chelsea.
Before the host Manchester City have no other choice than victory in a match against Chelsea if they want to stay in title game in England. Indications that Roberto Mancini is ready to bet on this match and Carlos Tevez, clearly show the intention of the hosts to fight hard for first place in the Premier League. On his “Etihad” this season in England, “citizens” are one hundred percent asset as of 14 matches they have 14 wins, which have made the 42 hits, while have allowed only 6 goals in its network. I expect that this winning streak can be maintained after the derby against Chelsea.
