Champions Chelsea will host fellow big-spenders Manchester City at Stamford Bridge on Sunday in the English Premier League, with both teams looking to maintain their faint title hopes.

Despite their riches and the obvious wealth of quality in both sides, the match will be far from a classic. Manager Roberto Mancini is expected to send out a City side with emphasis on defence. The visitors will look to sit back tight and make it hard for Chelsea's front three and the late-rushing Lampard to find space in the box and will attempt to strike on the counter.

Chelsea, on the other hand, will look to make use of the width and deliver crosses into the box aimed at their frontmen. They will welcome a goal from anyone, but one from Fernando Torres will have a special significance attached to it as it would be his first for the club.

Recent record suggests Manchester City have the edge as they have won their past three successive games against Chelsea. However, City are inconsistent and have mustered just one win in their last five away matches. Follow the live-coverage of the enocunter below!
