Chelsea take on Man City on Sunday 12th August, 2012, with kickoff at 13:30. This match is currently being shown LIVE on ITV1.
If any team is looking seriously to close the gap on Manchester City then that team is Chelsea, who this summer have invested in some of the brightest young talents in world football in an effort to close the gap on Roberto Mancini’s side. For a season-opener this has less of the needle than recent Community Shield matches, which could end up providing us with a better game of football.
Look out for a few things, the debut of Eden Hazard being one and the starting eleven of Mancini the other real point of interest. Once more unto the breach, as they say.
