But the 28-year-old still has faith in his former side to complete a job in Manchester on Saturday against Pep Guardiola's side. 

Speaking to Sky Sports, the Belgian said on the Blues' chances of getting a result: "Of course they can beat Man City. It’s not going to be easy, it’s hard to play there and last time we played there we lost 6-0.

"So it’s bad memories for me and for Chelsea as well but I think this season they are really good. They are really young but really good, so why not go there and win the game."

Coach Frank Lampard will be looking for a different result compared to last season where Maurizio Sarri's side were dealt with a 6-0 drubbing by the Premier League champions. 

Chelsea edged against of City prior to the international break following a 2-0 win over Crystal Palace, with Guardiola's side losing 3-1 to Liverpool - losing ground in the title race.

Carrying form, Lampard will be hoping to continue their momentum in the Premier League with another away win on Saturday.
