Chelsea vs Manchester City has been one of the blockbuster encounters in the premier league for a while now. The two teams had an incredible 2020-21 campaign and will be looking to carry forward the same to this season.
Chelsea comes into the game, on the back of a thrilling 1-1 win in the EFL Cup. Tuchel tried a 4-3-3 formation during that game but failed to get a result at the end of 90 minutes. However, the Blues have gotten into a habit of winning and they didn’t want to let go of it, as they drilled 4 of their penalties to take the win on the day.
When the Blues set out to face a City team, all eyes will be on their talismanic striker Romelu Lukaku, who is on a roll this season. The Belgian has scored 4 premier league goals and will be looking to add to his tally when the Blues take on City.
Manchester City drilled 6 goals past Wycombe in their EFL Cup Round 3 match. However, the same has not been the case for the defending champions in the premier league. City, who are known to dominate their opponents have not looked appalling this season. Their most notable win was against a depleted Arsenal side.
A win in this game will be crucial for the team, as it will set the tone for their all-important Champions League fixture against PSG. A win against the Blues will help City get level on points with Chelsea and hopefully give them a kickstart to get back to their dominant best.
Chelsea will have to probably once again play Kepa Arrizabalaga on goal, as their first-choice goalkeeper Eduardo Mendy looks doubtful for this fixture. The rest of their stars are all set to play, which means that the Blues will be hoping to field their best 11 against Man City.
Manchester City has a few niggles to their John Stones, Aymeric Laporte, and Zinchenko. However, if things look right during matchday, these players will definitely be available for selection on matchday.
