5 Reasons why Chelsea could destroy Manchester City today
Manchester City travel to Chelsea today in what could be a vital clash at the top of the table - for those of you with short memories, it was City's capitulation to Chelsea at the Etihad that proved to be the turning point in the Citizens charge to the Premier League title last season.
With most pundits tipping City and Guardiola for the title this time around as well, they land at Stamford Bridge as firm favourites.. but conventional wisdom may not hold much ground today.
Here are five reasons why Chelsea will triumph in this top of the table clash

With all the components of the team - defense, midfield, and attack shining in unison, they will take some stopping!
