Soccer: Chelsea vs. Manchester City

Manchester-City-v-Chelsea-Premier-LeagueThe Barclays Premier League gives way to the 5th round of the FA Cup this weekend in England with the Chelsea versus Manchester City game

Chelsea heads into this game looking to return to winning ways after they were beaten 2-1 by Paris Saint-Germain in the first leg of their Champions League last 16 clash on Tuesday night. They may be down, but it would be wrong to rule them out after picking up a crucial away goal in that game. Manchester City have to play in the Champions League early next week, and there’s still the matter of trying to run down Leicester City in the Premier League while getting back into at least the Top 3 in the process. It would be easy for the players to take their foot off the gas pedal here in this one against Chelsea which has been a mess all season long. The matchup between Chelsea and Manchester City will take place on Sunday, February 21, 2016 at 11:00 a.m. ET at Stamford Bridge. The game will be broadcast on FOX Sports 2.

Manchester City is looking to return to winning ways after their disappointing 2-1 home defeat by Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League last weekend. The Citizens suffered their second home defeat in an important match, and they aren’t playing to their potential at the moment making them look vulnerable. There isn’t a heck of a lot left for Chelsea to play for this year, but it can still work its way into European competition next year by winning the FA Cup. This is going to be a full Chelsea side with nothing left to play for but this. Though it would be easy to hit the self-destruct button here at home, we can’t imagine the Blues doing so in front of their hometown fans.

Soccer: Manchester City vs. Tottenham

tottenham-manchester-city-harry-kane-nicolas-otamendiManchester City F.C. vs. Tottenham Hotspur F.C. – Premier League

Manchester City was beaten last Saturday by Leicester City by a score of 3-1. The Citizens is left reeling, and it has a match with Tottenham, which is another top flight team coming to Manchester on Sunday. The Totterham Hotspur has won six straight matches to leap into second place in the Premier League. The Spurs have been buoyed by a successful campaign in the FA Cup, and that parlayed with success in the Europa League have them thinking about the possibility of it being a banner year at White Hart Lane. The matchup between Manchester City and Tottenham is set up for Sunday, February 14, 2016, at 11:15 a.m. ET at Ethiad Stadium. The game will be broadcast on NBC Sports Network.

The match at Manchester City on Sunday should give a strong indication of Spurs’s title credentials.  Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino claims Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane is at the same level as Sergio Aguero. Kane scored twice in Tuesday’s win at Norwich to take his tally to 15 goals in the Premier League this season. Aguero has long been regarded as one of the world’s best strikers. When Aguero put Spurs to the sword last season, Kane could not even get into the team. Now Kane is one of the most-feared forwards in English football.

Manchester City lost to Leicester City over the weekend and have dropped 12 possible points in nine EPL matches since just before Christmas. The Premier League is truly so wide open this year. Manchester City could lose this one once again. Leicester City exploited the lack of speed at the back, and Harry Kane could end up doing the same thing. The Tottenham Spurs scored four in a span of just 35 minutes against Manchester City back in September at White Hart Lane, and could end up doing something similar here as well.
