This week’s blockbuster clash in the Barclays Premier League pits English champions Chelsea against high-flying Manchester City at Stamford Bridge.
Both sides head into this match in exceptional form. Chelsea are coming off an impressive 2-1 away win against Atletico Madrid in midweek, while Manchester City have scored 16 goals in their last 4 matches.
Here is the Team News for this match.
Chelsea Team News
David Luiz got sent off against Arsenal two weeks ago and is hence unavailable for this match due to suspension. Chelsea manager Antonio Conte hinted that Andreas Christensen will most likely replace him in the starting XI. Eden Hazard has not started a Premier League match this season but is expected to feature in the Chelsea lineup against Manchester City. Alvaro Morata has recovered from his knock and will start up front.
Probable XI: Courtois; Azpilicueta, Cahill, Christensen; Zappacosta, Kante, Bakayoko/Fabregas, Alonso; Hazard, Pedro/Willian; Morata.
Manchester City Team News
The big news coming from the Manchester City camp is that Sergio Aguero will miss the match against Chelsea after breaking his ribs in a car crash in the Netherlands on Thursday night. Benjamin Mendy ruptured his ACL and will be out for the next 6-9 months. Danilo or Fabian Delph will replace Mendy in the City starting XI. Gabriel Jesus should come back into the lineup after being rested against Crystal Palace last week.
Probable XI: Ederson; Stones, Otamendi, Walker, Danilo; Fernandinho, De Bruyne, D. Silva, Sane, B Silva/Sterling; Jesus.
