Pep Guardiola has labelled Chelsea as an ‘important club’ and one of the “toughest” opponents his Man City side are set to face this season.
Man City boss Pep Guardiola admits that Chelsea will soon be ‘fighting for titles’ again. Manchester City will take on Chelsea in a crucial Premier League encounter and he is wary of the threat they could pose at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea have a poor show against Man City since their historic win in the Champions League final in 2021. They are yet to win a game against Pep Guardiola’s City in the last three years.
The Blues are currently sitting 10th in the Premier League standings after 11 matches. Pochettino’s side is coming off an impressive 4-1 win over former league leaders Tottenham Hotspur, thanks to Nicholas Johnson’s hattrick.

During the press conference, Pe Guardiola said, “Chelsea remain one of the most important clubs. They won the Champions League under [Thomas] Tuchel against us.
“It’s true they were not close to win the Premier League in these seasons, but they are one of the strongest teams no doubt.
“They’re aggressive and have good patterns. One of the toughest games we have during the season.
“We have try to maintain the level of our game, but sooner or later Chelsea will be there fighting for titles. No doubt about that.”
