The Sarri ball or Guardiola’s tiki-taka; which will prevail in the Super Sunday clash at the Etihad Stadium is the question on the lips of many football fans today.

While Man City are attempting to climb to top spot on the EPL table above Liverpool, Chelsea are keen to achieve a top-four finish to guarantee their return to Champions League football.

With their rivals literally breathing down their necks, City’s Pep Guardiola and Chelsea’s Maurizio Sarri are both keen to get it right in the Super Sunday clash at the Etihad.

Man City have lost three of their last five Premier League matches against Chelsea, so they would be extra careful against the Blues today.

That said, Chelsea are also winless in their last six Premier League away games against ‘big six’ opposition
