The Blues ran out 4-1 winners to end rivals Spurs' unbeaten run in a truly chaotic all-London clash on Monday night, but arguably still flattered to deceive for large periods against nine men before Nicolas Jackson's hat-trick finally settled the game in injury time.
City will have been licking their lips at Chelsea's struggles as they plot a seventh consecutive win over them across all competitions, having hit struggling Bournemouth for six before sealing their place in the Champions League knockout stages with two games to spare against Young Boys BSC on Tuesday.

Chelsea vs Man City prediction
While Tottenham nearly punished Chelsea with nine men, and an absurdly high defensive line, few will bet against Manchester City picking the Blues off in London.
Pochettino will take measures to address the threat of the Premier League champions, of course, but I can't see past a comfortable City win here.
Man City to win, 3-0.
