Preview: Chelsea vs. Manchester City – predictions, team news, lineups

Chelsea team news

  • Frank Lampard has Jorginho back from suspension, with the likes of Christian Pulisic and Tammy Abraham pushing for starts after missing out against Aston Villa on Sunday.

Man City team news

  • Sergio Aguero’s knee injury has ruled him out of the visit to west London — Gabriel Jesus will, as always, step in.
  • Kyle Walker, Aymeric Laporte, Benjamin Mendy, Kevin De Bruyne, Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus should all return to the starting lineup at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea possible starting lineup:

Kepa; Azpilicueta, Christensen, Rudiger, Alonso; Kante, Jorginho, Kovacic; Willian, Giroud, Pulisic.

Man City possible starting lineup:

Ederson; Mendy, Laporte, Fernandinho, Walker; Bernardo Silva, Rodri, De Bruyne; Sterling, Jesus, Mahrez.

Prediction: Chelsea 0-2 Man City

Recommended bet: Man City to win @ 1.80

Only a win for Pep Guardiola’s side against Chelsea tonight will prevent Liverpool from being mathematically unassailable at the top of the table with seven games to spare.
