Saturday's Premier League fixture between Manchester City and Chelsea will end a sequence which started exactly seven years ago.

Manchester City's Premier League fixture against Chelsea will end a sequence which first started seven years ago.

On the back of 11 successive wins in the top flight, City head into Saturday's showdown at the Etihad Stadium with a 10-point advantage.

Although Chelsea have recently fallen off the pace, their 2-2 draw against Liverpool earlier this month ensured that they remained ahead of the Merseyside giants.

That stalemate has set up an occasion in the North West where City and Chelsea will be meeting as the top two teams in England for the first time since January 2015.

It is a particularly remarkable statistic when taking into consideration that these two clubs have won five of the last seven Premier League titles.

However, not since 2014-15 have both teams finished the campaign sitting in the top two, with five other teams ensuring that no status quo occurred during the years that followed.
