KATHMANDU, Sept 25: Chelsea, who are currently at the top of the English Premier League are set to welcome Manchester City at their home stadium in Stamford bridge today. However, Pep Guardiola’s team is not new to defeating teams at their home ground. With just three points below the league leaders at 5th standing, Manchester City could grab the top spot if they manage a win. The same goes for the London giants, who have not lost a single game in their past five games. Chelsea is having a good run at the start of this season.
Similarly, Manchester United will be playing against Aston Villa at Old Trafford. The reds have been performing well this season and not to mention the arrival of the club’s superstar Cristiano Ronaldo who recently joined the club but has already scored three goals to his name. The game will see the likes of Marcus Rashford out of the Manchester team selection due to injury. However, the red side who are currently at the 3rd spot of the table are likely to go for a win to grab the three points to stay in the race. Aston Villa are currently at the 10th spot of the table with seven points.
Likewise, Leicester City will play against Burnley at home and Everton will welcome Norwich City today. Other matches include Leed United against West Ham and Watford against Newcastle United.
