Chelsea will lock horns with Manchester City at the Etihad on Saturday night, hoping to pick up a positive result on their travels. The Blues will be coming into the match on the back of an impressive 2-0 win against Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League, whereas the Citizens recorded a similar 2-0 victory over Paris Saint-Germain.

Thomas Tuchel will probably opt for the 3-4-3 formation with a few tweaks from the last game. Marcos Alonso might get the nod over Ben Chilwell, whereas Reece James looks likely to make his way back into the starting eleven.

Defence

Edouard Mendy will start in between the sticks for the upcoming away encounter. The Senegalese shot-stopper will hope to put up a strong performance and secure a clean sheet on Saturday.

Thiago Silva is expected to start at the heart of Blues’ backline, whereas Kurt Zouma might replace Antonio Rudiger at the left centre-back spot. Cesar Azpilicueta will fill the right centre-back position.

However, their prime objective will be to keep Kevin De Bruyne quiet throughout the ninety minutes.

Midfield

N’Golo Kante and Jorginho will fulfil the holding midfield positions, with the former occupying a more central role. The pair would be looking to dominate the midfield proceedings.

However, Thomas Tuchel revealed that Mateo Kovacic had a little ‘setback’ in training.

“Now we have a little setback with him.” – Tuchel stated.

Marcos Alonso will feature at the left wing-back position, whereas Reece James will fill in on the other flank as the right wing-back.

Attack

Mason Mount and Christian Pulisic will slot into the attacking midfield roles. The duo would be determined to set up some clear cut goal-scoring chances for the front-men.

Kai Havertz will lead the line for the visitors against Manchester City. The German international bagged a brace against Fulham last week, and he’ll be determined to repeat more of the same and impress against Pep Guardiola’s men.

Timo Werner might come on to make a cameo appearance in the second forty-five minutes.
