October 16, 2018
Winning the Premier League title for the First time, Pep looks to set new records in Premier League this week with one win needed to equalize Chelsea’s record of most win’s in a single season. Pep Guardiola would be experimenting some youngsters in a bid to develop the academy and still, the Spaniard considers the race is not over, hoping for Premier League record points tally. Benjamin Mendy who had been ruled out for most of the season returned the last match and shown his abilities to establish himself as a starter and Jesus upfront would not be silent who loves to travel to Russia with Canarinha.
The Blues have scored nine goals in their last two visits and West Ham who are on the brink of relegation after a great defeat to Arsenal in the last match. West Ham needs a great defensive performance to stop the Citizens and exploit any chances they make. With 98 goals scored in the competition, Citizens hope to break into 100+ club any time sooner on a record-breaking time. A revolutionary season of dominant football reaping title after title can only be justified with more victories and consistent performance and the Blues are experts in doing this.
