In the previous round, the Mancunians played a home match against Chelsea, which at that time was in the top 4.

To score, City players took from the first minutes of the confrontation, managed to open the score in the fourth minute, Raheem Sterling was the first on the rebound and plunged the ball under the crossbar with a strong blow. Nine minutes later, the score was already twice as high, Sergio Aguero decided to shoot from a long distance, the ball flew right into the top nine – no chance for the goalkeeper. The Argentine quickly got a taste, in the 19th minute he celebrated the second goal, the Chelsea defenders themselves threw the ball to the striker, who had only to beat the goalkeeper – 3:0. The game went on, and the City players continued to score, in the 25th minute Ilkay Gundogan scored with an accurate shot, the midfielder scored from a long distance. With the score 4:0, the teams went to rest. The situation changed little after the break.

Manuel Pellegrini’s team took away points from Liverpool (1:1), drew with Crystal Palace (1:1) and defeated Fulham (3:1). Positive results allowed the “Hammers” to rise to the ninth line. The home match against Fulham turned out to be quite interesting. The guests began to put pressure from the starting seconds and by the third minute they had two great chances to score a goal. But if Ryan Babel – Fabianski coped with the first blow, then he failed to save his team for the second time. Despite such a bad start, the hosts’ players did not despair. Self-confidence helped the Londoners equalize in the 29th minute, Chicharito successfully played at the far post, closing the discount from a partner. Very soon the situation was changed dramatically, Robert Snodgrass hung from the corner, and Issa Diop brought the hosts ahead – 2:1 in the 40th minute. “Hammers” kept the advantage after the break, Marko Arnautovic was the closest to a goal scored. At first, the goalkeeper dragged the blow of the Austrian, and a few minutes later Fulham rescued the crossbar.
