Chelsea host Manchester City in their first home game of 2023 as Graham Potter’s side look to claim their first win of the New Year.

It was a disappointing start to the year on Sunday after Chelsea were held to a 1-1 draw by Nottingham Forest on New Year’s Day.

They took the lead in the 16th minute through Raheem Sterling but Serge Aurier’s leveller secured a point for Forest at the City Ground. Chelsea were fortunate to hold on to get a point, continuing their winless run on the road.

Now Chelsea are back at home at Stamford Bridge and will be hoping to replicate their 2-0 win over Bournemouth on December 27 which saw them put a stop to their three game losing streak in the Premier League.

Chelsea are down in ninth and it gets no tougher, other than Arsenal who are in first, than Pep Guardiola’s side who will be looking to inflict another defeat on Potter’s side.

Here is all the information for the league encounter:
