Manchester City midfielder Fernandinho has said that his side are confident that they can beat Chelsea in the Premier League on Monday night.

Manuel Pellegrini's team head into the clash at the Etihad Stadium knowing that three points will keep them at least a point ahead of Arsenal in the table.

"I think the whole team is preparing well for this game," the 28-year-old told City's official website. "It's a very difficult game against a good team, but we will play at home and when you play at home you expect to win and we will try to do it again.

"Of course they have a very good manager and are a strong team with good players, but we are prepared and what happened there [in London] has to stay there.

"This is a new game, a new day and I hope it can be a new result which will be very good for us."

Fernandinho joined City from Shakhtar Donetsk last summer.
