Chelsea face one of their most difficult tests to date when they travel to The Etihad Stadium to take on English Premier League champions Manchester City on Saturday evening.
The Blues lead Pep Guardiola’s side by a point in the table following their six-match winning sequence in the English Premier League this season.
Manchester City go into the match without any fresh injury concerns. Midfielder Bernardo Silva is out through suspension while Leroy Sane and Aymeric Laporte continue to be sidelined by long term injury problems.
Goalkeeper Ederson and midfielder David Silva are fit to face Frank Lampard’s in-form Chelsea side as City look to leapfrog them in the table.
Chelsea travel to the North West with concerns over the fitness of midfielders Christian Pulisic and Callum Hudson-Odoi. The former is expected to recover from a groin injury in time to feature, however, winger Hudson-Odoi has a hamstring strain and may not be risked.
The Blues will receive a major boost with Jorginho returning from suspension. The player has been one of the South West Londoners’ top performers so far this season.
The match is scheduled to kick-off at 5.30pm and will be screened live on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League channels.
