This weekend’s heavy-weight clash sees Chelsea entertain Premier League leaders Manchester City at Stamford Bridge. Here is the latest team news and expected Chelsea line-up for the game.
The Blues will be desperate to bounce back from their defeat at Wolves in midweek and Sarri is expected to recall a number of his key men after rotating his squad at Molineux.
Kepa was at fault for the Wolves equaliser on Wednesday night as he let the ball go straight through him but the young Spaniard is still expected to keep his place in goal while the likes of Cesar Azpilicueta and Antonio Rudiger will once again line-up in defence.
Sarri has dismissed suggestions that Marcos Alonso is tired so he’s likely to keep his place at left-back but David Luiz is expected to be recalled after being rested in midweek. Andreas Christensen will therefore drop out.
Sarri’s decision to rest Jorginho backfired on Wednesday night so the Italian is certain to come back in to the midfield with Cesc Fabregas making way while N’Golo Kante should keep his place in the starting eleven.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek got himself on the score-sheet at Wolves but he may still find himself back on the bench tomorrow night with Mateo Kovacic recalled in the middle of the park.
Eden Hazard will obviously keep his place against City but I think Sarri will be tempted to recall Olivier Giroud and Pedro with Alvaro Morata and Willian making way.
