Chelsea will play against Manchester City in the English Premier League, in one of those games that will define the season.

Chelsea and Manchester City will meet tonight in English Premier League action.

And for Blues midfielder N’Golo Kante, his team can be optimistic about playing against the Citizens.

“It was an important game for us when we played them in December,” he recalled about the 2-0 win over City last year, as he spoke to the team’s official website.

“This will be another game, it will be difficult, but of course the last game gave us confidence that it is possible to win and I hope we’ll get a good result there.”

“It’s been a little bit difficult away from home in 2019, but we will try to get the result we want because we need to start to have many wins to keep the top four spot,” he added.

“I think we are a little bit far from the title race, but we will try to give our best until the season has finished.”

Aymeric Laporte signs new two-year deal at Man City

Manchester City have announced that Aymeric Laporte has signed a two-year contract extension.

“The most important thing is to finish the season in the top four. If we do very well and we are able to fight for the title, why not, but the most important thing is to get into the top four,” he commented.

“I think if we have a review of the first six or seven months of the season, we have had a little bit of inconsistency when we lost some games to put us in the position we are in now, but we need to work hard, keep going and go on a good run. We are still in four competitions and we can reach our goals.”

“I think I played some good and not so good games, but the most important thing is to play as a team, to complement our team-mates, to be organized and work together,” he continued.

“I think in training we prepare the game in the best way and we need to reproduce that in the games.”
