Pep Guardiola has lost three league matches against Chelsea, more than against any other team in his managerial career.

Chelsea are unbeaten in seven PL fixtures against reigning PL champions and can now become only the third team to win four such matches in a row, after Liverpool and Man City.

The Blues, who won the reverse fixture this season, have done the double over Man City on 10 occasions in the Premier League, more than any other side.
