2012 English Premier League:Manchester City vs. ChelseaMarch 21, 2012 by Marc Jerbs

On Wednesday, Manchester City play host to Chelsea in an English Premier League fixture at Etihad Stadium. The game will start at 19:45PM GMT.

Manchester City is not having a good form for the past two weeks. They suffered a stunning loss against Swansea and were booted out for contention at the Europa League by Sporting Lisbon.

City's loss against Swansea was more costly as it dropped them to 2nd place behind Manchester United. It is important for them to win against Chelsea so they could trim Manchester United's lead to one point.

Chelsea will come in at Etihad Stadium in great form under interim manager Roberto Di Matteo. They have won their last four games in all competitions which featured their incredible comeback win against Napoli in the Champions League.

They may not be in contention for the title this year at the English Premier League but they will have a hand on who will be the eventual champion this season.

The sportsbook handicappers have installed Manchester City as the favorite to beat Chelsea. A win by City will make the title chase with Manchester United more exciting while a win by Chelsea is a big blow to Manchester City's Premier League title aspiration.
