Manchester City will take on Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Thursday night as both of them hope to take all three points from this encounter. The Sky Blues were held to a 1-1 draw by Everton while the Blues suffered the same fate at the hands of Nottingham Forest accepting a single point from a two-goal stalemate.

Pep Guardiola should probably return to the 4-3-3 formation and is expected to make a couple of changes to the match-day squad. Phil Foden will play from the start as Jack Grealish makes way by taking a spot on the bench while Erling Haaland continues up top with his rich run of form.

Graham Potter will make use of the 4-3-3 formation of his own and is expected to name a strong first XI for this home encounter. Hakim Ziyech and Mateo Kovacic could play from the start as Christian Pulisic makes way for the former while Dennis Zakaria drops to the bench for the latter.

Guardiola will remain without the services of Ruben Dias (thigh) and Aymeric Laporte (back) who are recovering from injury at the moment. Julian Alvarez is available for selection as he made his return to the Eithad during the last game following the World Cup-winning campaign with Argentina. Apart from this the rest of the team remains fit and available for selection.

Manchester City Predicted XI

Ederson; Cancelo, Stones, Akanji, Ake; De Bruyne, Rodri, Gundogan; Bernardo Silva, Haaland, Foden

Chelsea

Meanwhile, Chelsea’s medical team continues to work on long-term absentees N’Golo Kante, Armando Broja and Reece James with his latest knee problem, which could rule him out for a few weeks. Furthermore, Wesley Fofana, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, and Ben Chilwell remain a doubt, especially the latter with his shoulder issue.

Chelsea Predicted XI

Kepa; Azpilicueta, Silva, Koulibaly, Cucurella; Jorginho, Kovacic, Mount; Sterling, Havertz, Ziyech
