By time Chelsea fell to Manchester City on March 4, their fans were quite inured to such things: City handed the Blues their fourth loss in the last five Premier League games and, just the week before, the other side of Manchester sent the Blues home with nothing.

Generously, the issue with the loss against Manchester City was the tactics.

In the course of excoriating Antonio Conte for his defensive tactics, Chelsea fans proclaimed they would rather lose by a large margin as long as they did so playing “beautiful attacking football” than lose 1-0 with eight men behind the ball.

Tomorrow could be the moment we find out what the fans really want this club to be.

One of those trifling details lost to time about last March’s game against Manchester City was how well the Blues stifled City.

Maurizio Sarri wants football to be fun for himself, the players and the fans.

Among the many terrifying aspects of Manchester City is how they are only slightly compromised by not having Sergio Aguero, Benjamin Mendy or Kevin de Bruyne available for the match.
