50-50 Challenge: Chelsea vs. Man City and Frank Lampard's return

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini praised the quality of Frank Lampard after the midfielder scored the winner against Sunderland.

Frank Lampard returns to Chelsea for the first time since leaving them for Manchester City on Saturday as the champions take on Jose Mourinho's men in a crucial clash at Stamford Bridge.

It was rather surreal to see Lampard, clad in sky blue, score against Chelsea for City earlier in the season -- the equaliser in a 1-1 draw that could yet turn out to be pivotal in the title race.

He has netted seven goals for Manuel Pellegrini's men this season, and would you really put it past him adding to that...

John Terry has a well-worn technique for getting his message across. You see it whenever the Chelsea captain takes to the pitch, but it always seems to stand out more in the sanitised surrounds of the Champions League than in the hurly-burly of domestic competition.

Terry is one of those central defenders who likes to introduce himself to a striker early on. It does not necessarily take the form of a reducer. He is cleverer, subtler than that -- a shoulder charge, or a collision of chests, something...

The FC TV panel think the title race could be over if Chelsea win but what do you think? Vote now!

The Premier League top two teams meet at Stamford Bridge on Saturday and we want to know who you think will be celebrating -- the current leaders or the defending champions?

Who will win?

Hosts Chelsea enter the game with a five-point lead over Manchester City at the top of the table and are unbeaten in the last three league games between the two clubs, the most recent of which was a 1-1 draw at the Etihad Stadium in September.

That day, Andre Schurrle put Jose Mourinho's side in front only for Chelsea's...

David Moyes is like Jose Mourinho, says Real Sociedad's Esteban Granero

David Moyes has done well since arriving at Real Sociedad.

Few players in football have worked under as many top managers as Esteban Granero. Still only 27, the former Real Madrid starlet has already taken tactical instructions and listened to motivational speeches from the likes of Michael Laudrup, Manuel Pellegrini, Jose Mourinho, Harry Redknapp and now David Moyes at Real Sociedad.

Granero's winding career path has already taken him through the Bernabeu youth system, a breakout spell at Getafe, three up-and-down seasons in the Madrid first team, a less...

Chelsea star Willian loves Michael Jackson and theatre

Chelsea's Willian says he's a big than of the theatre ... and Michael Jackson.

Seeking to take in the culture in his new home city, Chelsea midfielder Willian has fallen head over heels in love with musical theatre.

Indeed, the Brazilian has admitted he's become slightly obsessed with the West End over the past few months, having paid to see the Michael Jackson "Thriller" musical production more times than is probably necessary since he arrived in London in 2013.

"The first time I went to a musical in London I loved it," Willian told The Sun.

"Now whenever I have free time...

A history of the Premier League's genuinely title-deciding showdowns

ESPN FC's Craig Burley believes controlling David Silva is the key for Chelsea to beat Man City on Saturday in their big Premier League clash.

Jose Mourinho may be unwilling to talk about it, having cancelled his pre-game news conference on account of the violent conduct charge for Diego Costa, but it's not like Chelsea-Manchester City will be lacking in build-up this weekend. As tends to be the case with these modern fixtures, it has already been described as the season's key match, and a potentially defining meeting for the Premier League title.

There's little doubt that such showdowns can involve a lot of drama, and reveal plenty about...
