Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has talked up Chelsea's chances ahead of the clash at the Etihad on Sunday.
Rafa Benitez's side have struggled to find consistency this season after dropping out of the Champions League in the group stage and losing over two legs to Swansea in the Capital One Cup semi-final.
This weekend's meeting between second and third could well decide who finishes behind leaders Manchester United - who seem to be running away with the title, holding a 12-point advantage.
The Argentinian is reluctant to get carried away ahead of the fixture and expects the European Champions to come and provide a tough test at the Etihad Stadium.
"Chelsea are a great team," said Aguero.
"They've won the Champions League for a reason and even if they were eliminated from that tournament and haven't had as good as season as they might have expected in the League, they are still a great team with fantastic players- but so are we."
