The Blues have beaten all of their "big four" rivals so far this season. Following on from sublime wins over Liverpool and Manchester United, Chelsea dismantled Arsenal by a 3-0 margin last week at the Emirates Stadium. Two stunning goals from Didier Drogba and an own goal from Thomas Vermaelen allowed Chelsea to maintain a five-point gap at the top of the league table.
Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti was delighted with the win and said that his side can win the title this season. However with the African Cup of Nations looming in January, the Italian manager will caution his side against complacency and with a slew of fixtures coming up during Christmas, he will be extra careful. Ashley Cole is fit after recovering from a hamstring niggle, but Jose Bosingwa remains a long-term absentee.
Meanwhile Manchester City are under immense pressure having drawn seven games on the trot. Last week the Citizens were held to a 1-1 draw by Hull City despite taking a lead through Shaun Wright-Phillips. Jimmy Bullard equalized from the penalty spot to give manager Mark Hughes much heartache.
Media rumours indicate Hughes will be fired by the club's Arab owners although the manager himself has rubbished such rumours. Gareth Barry is a doubtful starter for this one as he is struggling with a groin issue.
