31 January ~ Second-place Manchester City travel to Stamford Bridge this weekend hoping to cut Chelsea’s five-point lead at the top of the Premier League table. In 1989 the two teams were in a similar battle, but for the Division Two title. Then it was City who were leading the table, one point above Chelsea, when the latter visited Maine Road in March. Chelsea had started the season poorly but were unbeaten in 20 league games going into the match, and Kerry Dixon, Kevin Wilson and Tony Dorigo gave them a 3-0 lead. Neil McNab and Gerry Taggart got consolations back but it wasn’t enough for City. Chelsea went top and stayed there, losing only one more game all season and ending with 99 points, while City were second on 82.
