EPL: Petr Cech reveals ‘advantage’ for Chelsea, Man City clash

Chelsea legend, Petr Cech, believes both the Blues and Manchester City have the opportunity to make a statement this weekend with the early kick-off in the English Premier League, EPL.

Chelsea and Man City will go head-to-head on Saturday afternoon with a 12:30 pm kick-off time and Cech has now revealed why this could be an advantage to both sides.

Writing in his column for Chelsea’s website, Cech said, “If you get the result in a game like this, you can really enjoy the rest of the football for the weekend.”

“You start early, you finish early, you can watch the other games and enjoy the rest of the day with the family, have a nice meal with the good feeling that it was a great win.


“That is the advantage of the early game – if you manage to win!”

Chelsea head to the game after beating Aston Villa in the Carabao Cup in mid-week, while Man City defeated Wycombe.

The UEFA Champions League holders are currently on top of the Premier League table with 13 points after five games, while Pep Guardiola’s side are in the fifth position with 10 points from the same number of games.
