THE TEAM NEWS

MAN CITY

  • Man City are coming off the 3-1 defeat at Anfield which has left them even further adrift so there is even less margin for error right now.
  • Pep Guardiola will hope that he can call upon Ederson as the keeper has recovered from his injury and he should be able to replace Bravo.
  • Bernardo Silva will serve a one-match ban so that will open the door for Mahrez or De Bruyne will play in a more advanced role on the right.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Ederson; Walker, Stones, Fernandinho, Mendy; Rodri, David Silva, De Bruyne; Mahrez, Aguero, Sterling

Unavailable: Sane (Injured), Laporte (Injured), Zinchenko (Injured), Bernardo Silva (Suspended)

Doubtful: Ederson (Injured)

CHELSEA

  • Chelsea's form has gone somewhat unnoticed as they have moved quietly up the table and currently sit above opponents Man City in the league.
  • They have some positive team news ahead of this as Jorginho is available after a ban while Pulisic should be fit despite carrying a knock.
  • After his impeccable performance against Wilfried Zaha last time out, there is every chance that Reece James will keep his starting spot

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Kepa; James, Zouma, Tomori, Emerson; Kovacic, Kante; Willian, Mount, Pulisic; Abraham

Unavailable: Van Ginkel (Injured), Loftus-Cheek (Injured), Rudiger (Injured)

Doubtful: Barkley (Injured), Pulisic (Injured), Hudson-Odoi (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

After losing to Liverpool last time out, Man City will be tested once again as they welcome an in-form Chelsea side. Lampard's men are full of confidence and they will pose a real test to the City defence which they will be confident of breaching, but City at home should just have enough to win.
