Chelsea vs Manchester City: team news, possible line up



Manchester City will face one of their toughest opponents tonight when they travel to North London to face Chelsea in the Premier League, with both sides having made good starts since the restart of the league.

The Blues now have a five-point lead on the teams directly below them in the table as they look to secure a spot in the 2020/21Champions League.

Pep Guardiola’s side as well are essentially secure in second place in the table, with both teams have FA Cup fixtures this weekend.

Chelsea, however, will still be missing Fikayo Tomori as a defensive option, but midfielder Jorginho is back from suspension. Callum Hudson-Odoi is a slight doubt.

Man City have heavily rotated in their first two games back, but have still picked up a few injuries. Eric Garcia is recovering from a head clash, John Stones is still a doubt and Phil Foden may miss out after a slight injury on Monday. Sergio Aguero is definitely out.
