Jose Going For A Win At City

Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho, says the Blues will go to the Etihad Stadium with the intention to win the game and draw point level with the Citizens.

Chelsea’s opponents have a 100 percent home record in the Premier League this season, winning all 11 of their matches and scoring 42 goal along the way.

The Blues won the return match at Stamford Bridge 2-1, but have been struggling to take the three points when traveling to other big team, drawing at Tottenham, Manchester United and Arsenal.

But despite the record and Chelsea potentially dropping six points behind City, Jose Mourinho says his side is under no pressure tonight.

"We are going to try to win knowing perfectly we can lose or draw. Our intention is to try to win," Mourinho said.

"City score goals. Normally, when your approach is very defensive, if you concede a goal you are in trouble.

"Or you have to make changes during the game and you never know how the players adapt to it."

Manchester City have already scored 115 goals in all competitions with four players already in double figures.

City’s top scorer, Sergio Aguero, will miss the game against Chelsea with a hamstring injury but Mourinho insists Manuel Pellegrini’s side can cope without him.

"He's a fantastic player, but he's one of so many," he added.

"Even the fourth striker (Stevan Jovetic), coming off the bench, comes on and scores (in Wednesday's 5-1 win at Tottenham).

"For the last months Sergio was injured and the third striker, (Edin) Dzeko, was making the difference and scoring a lot of goals.

"So for them it's not important if somebody is injured."

Can Chelsea brake City home record or will the Blues just ‘park the bus’ and hope for a draw tonight? Have your say in the comment section below.
