Preview

Chelsea will be looking to consolidate their place in the top four and extend their four-match unbeaten run.

Manchester City are seeking a third consecutive victory since their return to action, after home wins over Arsenal and Burnley.

Man City need to prove they can live without Aguero for a month and Chelsea are still rotating young players so how will they cope? We’ll find out, a cracking game upon us.

Team News

Fikayo Tomori is still out with a muscle problem while Callum Hudson-Odoi is lacking match fitness. But Jorginho is available again following suspension.

Sergio Aguero is out with a knee injury, but John Stones (ankle) is closing in on a return.

Prediction

Man City come in to this game rocking after two great victories and should put in a strong and rested starting XI. Chelsea are a strong side and this game will test City’s resolve and midfield. City should be stronger up top and because of that it will be high scoring, but City will come out on top.

Manchester City 3-2 Chelsea
