CHE vs MCI Dream11 Prediction | Chelsea vs Manchester City EFL Cup Final Match Preview | Team News & Fantasy Team

Chelsea and Manchester City will compete for the first trophy of the domestic season when they face each other tomorrow for the Carabao Cup final. Manchester City won the competition last time around and they will seek to retain the cup. Their rivals Chelsea would be even more eager to win it to ease off some steam due to their underwhelming Premier League campaign.

Match Details:

Venue – Wembley Stadium, London

Date & Time –   24th Feb | 10:00 PM IST

The CHE vs MCI Dream11 Match Preview

Chelsea will meet Manchester City for the second time in a time period of just 2 weeks. However, The Blues will be keen to avoid a hammering this time after losing the first game 6-0 at the Etihad. Manchester City will come in as favourites, having won the competition last time around.

Sarri’s make or break match?

The Chelsea coach is under fire for the team’s dismal performances in the Premier League. The Italian manager had arrived at the Stamford Bridge amid huge expectations and despite making a bright start, his team has lost the way. The Blues have slipped out of the top 4 to the 6th position. A series of disappointing performances in recent months have lead to the downfall of Chelsea.

There are growing worries at Chelsea with fans openly displaying their anger and frustration in the matches. Thus, if Sarri’s Chelsea were to lose this match, there could be no way back for the Italian and it might result in him getting sacked.

Pep hungry for titles

After a trophyless first season with Manchester City, questions were raised if the Spaniard could repeat his heroics of Spain and Germany in England. However, what followed next season was as comprehensive a league title win as there has been in recent years. The former Barcelona coach also won the Caraboa Cup to make it a double last year.

It goes without saying that a coach like Pep Guardiola wants to win every competition his team competes in. The Manchester City coach will hope that Caraboa Cup win would be the first of many as his team fights for titles on 4 fronts. Pep would also love to go deeper in the Champions League this year.
