Mourinho Makes 2 Changes: Predicted Chelsea Starting XI To Face Man City

Chelsea will be looking to pick up their first three points of the season when they take on Manchester City at the Etihad on Sunday afternoon. Here is the side I think Jose Mourinho will pick:

Goalkeeper: Thibaut Courtois will be forced to serve a one-game suspension after failing with his appeal to get his sending off over-turned following his dismissal against Swansea last week, so Asmir Begovic is set to make his full debut in goal.

Defence: Mourinho is unlikely to tinker too much from his preferred back four so we should see the same defence that lined-up against the Swans last weekend with Branislav Ivanovic at right-back, Gary Cahill alongside John Terry in the centre of defence and Cesar Azpilicueta at left-back.

Midfield: The Chelsea boss usually likes to bring Ramires in to his starting eleven against the top sides so we could see the Brazilian come in for Oscar – who is a doubt after picking up a knock in training. Nemanja Matic will be his partner in midfield.

Attack: That would allow Cesc Fabregas to move a little further forward and play in attack alongside Eden Hazard and Willian. Diego Costa showed no signs of ill-effect after completing the full ninety minutes last week so I expect he’ll continue to lead the line on Sunday.

Here is how I think we’ll see Chelsea line-up:
