Manchester City play host to Chelsea as two of this seasons Premier League title favourites go head to head at the Etihad Stadium today.

Pep Guardiola has decided to leave Yaya Toure on the bench while Raheem Sterling misses out as Jesus Navas starts in attack along with David Silva and Kevin De Bruyne.

John Stones starts in defence alongside Nicolas Otamendi while Sergio Aguero leads the line up front. Nolito isn’t selected in the squad.

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is forced to make one change with Cesc Fabregas coming in to make only his second start of the season. Nemanja Matic is the man to miss out through illness.
