Chelsea will host Manchester City at Stamford Bridge on Saturday in this Premier League Round’s most anticipated fixture.
The Blues can get even on points should they win, but the Citizens won’t be an easy kill. Both clubs will be bristling with confidence from their mid-week Champions League victories.
Here is the team news:
The only noticeable absence in Antonio Conte’s side will be David Luiz who is still serving a three-game ban for his reckless challenge on Sead Kolasinac.
Predicted Line-up: Courtios, Cahill, Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Zappacosta, Alonso, Kante, Bakayako, Fabregas, Hazard, Morata
Sergio Aguero is the biggest surprise absence after being involved in a car accident yesterday. Benjamin Mendy’s absence will also be fresh in Pep Guardiola’s mind, while Vincent Kompany is a long-term absentee.
Predicted Line-up: Bravo, Danilo, Otamendi, Stones, Fernandinho, Toure, De Bryune, Silva, Sterling, Jesus
