Frank Lampard ready for Chelsea return

50-50 Challenge
 By Nick Miller

Can Chelsea cope without Costa? Five questions for Chelsea vs. Man City

Big, big, big, big game in the Premier League. The boys report from Stamford Bridge, speak to Frank Lampard and play a game of snakes and ladders ahead of Chelsea's clash with Manchester City.

Nick Miller asks and answers five key questions ahead of Saturday's Premier League clash between Chelsea and Manchester City at Stamford Bridge.

1. Can Chelsea cope without Diego Costa, and possibly Cesc Fabregas?

The good thing about having the perfect striker for your system of play is that when he's there, things run in perfect, smooth harmony, players neatly complementing each other and slotting together like it was meant to be. The bad thing is, when he's not there then things are thrown...

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...

Manuel Pellegrini must decide on Man City's approach vs. pragmatic Chelsea

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.
ESPN FC's experts discuss the implication of Diego Costa's potential suspension for Chelsea's crucial clash with Manchester City.

Manchester City are cornered tigers in this Premier League title race, and that makes them doubly dangerous as they aim to cut Chelsea's five-point lead at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

After the 2-0 home losses to Arsenal in the league and Championship side Middlesbrough in the FA Cup, manager Manuel Pellegrini knows that another setback in this huge game would leave City's domestic campaign in tatters.

It would be hard to imagine Jose Mourinho's team surrendering an eight-point lead, should they...

Zabaleta-Ivanovic duel the main subplot in Chelsea vs. Manchester City

The ESPN FC crew discuss Manchester City's 2-0 FA Cup defeat to Middlesbrough, for which Steve Nicol believes their trip to Abu Dhabi was to blame.

A title decider has a subplot in the quest to be the best. Chelsea and Manchester City contest the silverware, Branislav Ivanovic and Pablo Zabaleta vie for an unofficial honour. They are the Premier League's two outstanding right-backs. Not necessarily over the case of this campaign, because Southampton's Nathaniel Clyne has been a revelation, or last campaign, when Everton's Seamus Coleman was a formidable attacking presence, but over several seasons. Ivanovic and Zabaleta display a brand of...

The Premier League's 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...
