Former England manager, Glenn Hoddle, has backed Chelsea to beat Manchester City when both sides clash in the Premier League on September 25 at Stamford Bridge.
Hoddle also named Chelsea as the best team in England presently ahead of Man City.
Chelsea head to the game following a 3-0 win against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, while Man City played goalless with Southampton on Saturday.
“Chelsea are the best team in the country, there is no doubt about it, at this moment in time. Reversing it, I thought City were going to be the team to knock off the top,” Hoddle told the Premier League’s website.
“I think it is Chelsea now. I think City have got a lot of work to do. They play each other next week, and it is a hell of a game.
“I think it is Chelsea, actually, who are going to be in control. Who is going to knock them off their pedestal?”
