The next Manchester City match is upon us! The Citizens welcome Chelsea to Etihad Stadium, and Pep Guardiola has a very big squad to choose from.

He has to choose just 18 to be in uniform, but there are plenty of names available for selection:

Goalkeepers: Claudio Bravo, Willy Caballero, Angus Gunn

Defenders: Pablo Zabaleta, Bacary Sagna, Pablo Maffeo, John Stones, Nicolas Otamendi, Tosin Adarabioyo, Aleksandar Kolarov, Gaël Clichy, Angeliño Tasende

Midfielders: Fernandinho, Fernando, Ilkay Gundogan, Kevin De Bruyne, David Silva, Yaya Touré, Aleix García, Raheem Sterling, Leroy Sané, Jesus Navas

Forwards: Sergio Agüero, Kelechi Iheanacho, Nolito

Only Vincent Kompany and Fabian Delph are injured, but that's not a surprise. With a full week to train and assess his options, Pep Guardiola has a number of different lineup possibilities, and with such a talented squad at his disposal, he could finally figure out how to break Antonio Conte's fortress.


Projected starting lineup (4-1-4-1, right-left):

Bravo | Zabaleta, Stones, Otamendi, Kolarov | Fernandinho | Sterling, Silva, Gundogan, De Bruyne | Agüero

The match starts at 12:30pm BST (UK) / 7:30am ET, 4:30am PT (US) / 5:45pm IST (India), and you can join us to follow and comment all the action.
