Roberto Mancini may bring Carlos Tevez back into the fold for this game

Manchester City are chasing a 20th straight Premier League home victory, but it won't be easy against Chelsea, who have four in a row...

Frank Lampard has scored six goals in his last 10 Premier League games against Man City.

Carlos Tevez has scored in each of his last five Premier League appearances against Chelsea, netting six in total across those games.

Man City have failed to score in 13 of their last 19 Premier League games against Chelsea, but have scored in four of the last five. Correct score

There have been four penalties awarded in the last five meetings between Manchester City and Chelsea. Penalty taken?

Manchester City have won their last 19 Premier League home games and could set the record for the competition's longest ever run of home victories if they win this match. Match odds

Chelsea have only won one of their last seven Premier League away games (W1 D4 L2). Match odds

80% of the goals conceded by Man City have been netted in the second half this season, more than any other team. Half with most goals

Roberto Mancini's side have only lost one league game after going ahead this season and that was against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea win from behind?

Juan Mata is the most prolific creator in the top flight setting up a chance for team-mates every 23.7 minutes on average.
