After only three losses in their previous 44 Premier League games, Pep Guardiola's team will enter Sunday's meeting against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge feeling confident about their chances of recovering swiftly.
Manchester City has recently defeated Chelsea in four league games, winning three of those victories and keeping a clean sheet in every one of those victories.
In the previous 11 meetings between these two clubs, City has only kept three clean sheets while Chelsea has only been able to win four of those games in all competitions.
According to the most recent team news, N'Golo Kane, Armando Broja, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Ben Chilwell, Reece James, and Wesley Fofana are all now out for Chelsea due to injury.
Ruben Dias won't be able to play for Manchester City on Thursday due to an injury.
Julian Alvarez might see some action after getting back from Argentina's post-World Cup celebrations.
There is no escaping the fact that Chelsea struggled to maintain consistency before and during the World Cup break.
They won't have an easy time competing against Man City as a direct result of this.
