Chelsea is expected to pay homage to Manchester City with a guard of honour before their match at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday, May 21, 2023.
Manchester City are the 2022–23 Premier League champions after Arsenal's 1-0 defeat at Nottingham Forest means Pep Guardiola's side can no longer be caught at the top of the table.
Chelsea will face Manchester City for the third time this season; the league champions defeated them by 1:0 and 4:0 scores in the Premier League at Stamford Bridge and the FA Cup at the Etihad Stadium in January, respectively.
Frank Lampard in the dugout for the twelve-placed table team, Chelsea, will need his second win against Pep Guardiola in the Premier League. The last time Frank won against Guardiola was in 2020 at Stamford Bridge, when Willian and Pulišić scored for Kevin De Bruyne to pull one back.
In a week, the runaway league champions, Manchester City, have had celebrations of honour in the UEFA Champions League and the English Premier League.
