'Never an easy place to go': 28-year-old Man City ace previews title-defining Chelsea clash

John Stones has previewed the contest between Man City and Chelsea, as all eyes will be on the Premier League champions who continue to slip away in the title race.

Stalwarts like Stones will be vital to City on Thursday night, as they aim to capitalise on Arsenal dropping 2 points against Newcastle United earlier.

Currently, 10th placed Chelsea are far from being the best versions of themselves.

However, the pressure lies on Man City away from home, as they are currently 8 points adrift of Arsenal in the title race.

Bernardo Silva recently admitted that the Sky Blues squad is ‘not happy’ about chasing Mikel Arteta’s side.

Additionally, Pep Guardiola’s side will be expected to come away with a victory, as they are the outright favourites to take home the all-important points.

However, that will only be possible if Stones and Co. typically step up to the plate against the Blues.

John Stones has discussed the upcoming battle against Chelsea from a Man City perspective.

“We [Man City] had a great game against them [Chelsea] recently at home at the Etihad.”

“It [Stamford Bridge] is never an easy place to go. Like any team in the Premier League, everyone wants points no matter where you are in the table.”

“They are a team that we have had a good battle with for years and whether it is now or in the Champions League, we have had good matches.”

“I think it will be a difficult week, playing them back-to-back [in the FA Cup after the Premier League] but hopefully, we can get the job done”, Stones said, as per the official club website.

Ultimately, John Stones and the rest of his teammates will have to prove their class against Chelsea to ensure Man City stay firmly in the Premier League title race.
