Manchester City won’t have either John Stones or Aymeric Laporte available for the trip to Stamford Bridge tomorrow afternoon.
Stones is currently struggling with a muscular problem while Laporte aggravated a groin injury when he played against Leicester earlier this month.
There are also doubts over Ilkay Gundogan, Rodri and Oleksandr Zinchenko heading into the game, leaving manager Pep Guardiola with limited options in key areas of the pitch.
Manchester City’s Predicted XI To Play Chelsea:
Ederson, Walker, Dias, Ake, Cancelo, Silva, Fernandinho, Foden, Jesus, Torres, Grealish
Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel may not be able to call upon Edouard Mendy (hip) or Christian Pulisic (ankle) due to doubts over their fitness.
Chelsea’s Predicted XI:
Kepa, James, Azpilicueta, Silva, Rudiger, Alonso, Kante, Jorginho, Mount, Lukaku, Havertz
The bookies have found this one very difficult to call. City are currently 7/4 to win at Betfair while a draw is 23/10 with William Hill. A victory for Chelsea is 7/4 at Unibet.
Predicted Score – 0-0
