Petr Cech claims that Chelsea can expose Manchester City's frailties at the back.

Chelsea keeper Petr Cech has said that his side can expose Manchester City's defensive frailties on Monday night.

The Blues have bagged 15 goals in their last six home games, while Roberto Mancini's side have conceded seven on the road. However, the Czech Republic international insists that goalkeeper Joe Hart has been able to hide their biggest weakness, which the London club will look to exploit.

"City's main strength is their midfield and attack," he said. "But they still concede chances and Joe Hart has been having a very good season.

"Defending is not their strongest point. So far they have been converting chances but who knows whether they can keep scoring goals like this.

"If we manage to get three points against City, the Premier League table will start looking different."

The Blues are currently ten points behind league leaders Manchester City in fifth place.
