MANCHESTER — Chelsea has had an eight-point lead in the English Premier League wiped out by title rival Manchester City once already this season.

Don’t expect it to happen again.

That means all the pressure will be on City when the defending champions travel to Stamford Bridge on Saturday, looking to avoid a loss to Chelsea that would restore the eight-point gap with 15 games remaining.

In fact, for City manager Manuel Pellegrini, only a victory will do.

“We must close the gap to two points,” Pellegrini said of the biggest match of the season so far.

Having worked so hard in December to get back on level terms with Chelsea, City has allowed its rival to pull five points clear in the title race after drawing at Everton and losing at home to Arsenal in its last two league games. Throw in a home loss to second-tier Middlesbrough in the FA Cup last weekend and City’s form has plummeted — despite star striker Sergio Aguero being back in the team after injury.
