It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life for the Premier League! *insert singing voice*
Hello SunSport family, I hope you are all feeling as excited as I am for the HUGE encounter coming up in an hour and a half time.
We shouldn’t really be getting ahead of ourselves because the 2021/22 campaign is only six games in, but let’s be honest, based quality and strength in depth of the two teams, these clubs are definitely title contenders in many people’s eyes.
Ladies and gentleman, boys and girls, our live blog coverage this afternoon will be focused on the kings of England Manchester City who travel to London to take on the kings of Europe Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
I had goosebumps just typing that.
Pep Guardiola’s side are hoping to replicate what they did in the 2017/18 and 2018/19 by retaining the Premier League title but they are off the pace a little at the moment.
Man City currently occupy 5th spot on the charts having recently dropped points at home to Southampton last weekend.
As for the Blues, a 3-0 pummeling over London rivals Spurs last Sunday put them joint top with Liverpool so their tails will be wagging going into this one.
However, as us fans of the Premier League know, form goes out the window when it comes to a huge clash such as this one.
Kick-off is scheduled for 12:30pm UK time but before that we will have some quotes, injury news and of course, the highly anticipated starting line-ups.
So grab your breakfast people and keep clicking the refresh button.
