Having come out on top in both encounters last season, Al Hain-Cole thinks Conte could be the man to stop Guardiola's side in their tracks

Chelsea will be hoping to move level on points with leaders Manchester City when they welcome them to Stamford Bridge in Saturday’s heavyweight Premier League clash.

Having bounced back from their opening defeat at home to Burnley to collect 13 points from the next available 15, the champions are available at 9/5 (2.80) with dabblebet to give their own title credentials a major boost by coming out on top against the early front-runners.

Meanwhile, the Citizens have won eight and lost none of their nine games in all competitions so far this campaign, and can be backed at 6/4 (2.50) to come out on top at this ground for just the second time in eight league visits.

None of the last five encounters between these sides have resulted in a draw, but you can get odds of 5/2 (3.50) on them cancelling each other out in this one.

While his arrival in England was rather overshadowed by that of Pep Guardiola, it was Antonio Conte who ended the season as Manager of the Year after leading his side to an impressive league title and being the only manager to mastermind home and away victories over the former Barcelona boss in the league.

Chelsea look just as deadly this season, too, with Alvaro Morata grabbing a hat trick at Stoke City last weekend to take his tally to six league goals for the season, before scoring the equaliser at Atletico Madrid in the Blues' 2-1 win there on Wednesday night.

Although the Italian tactician obviously deserves credit, those results only served to extend Guardiola’s unusually poor record against the Blues - having failed to oversee a single victory in seven encounters.

The Citizens have been on fire this season, with Sergio Aguero, Gabriel Jesus and Raheem Sterling netting 15 times between them in the Premier League, but could struggle against a defence that has conceded just two league goals since opening day and is considerably stronger than any other that Pep's side have faced this season.

Given his side’s strong recent form, draw no bet odds of 19/20 (1.95) actually seem well worth backing on the Chelsea manager maintaining his side’s strong home record against the visitors.
