Premier League!! Chelsea vs Manchester City On Saturday At Stamford Bridge, 5:30pm
Chelsea face the sternest test of their Premier League title credentials on Saturday as free-scoring Manchester City come to town.
The champions did the double over Pep Guardiola’s side last season, Eden Hazard scoring three times over two games and the Belgian will make just his second Premier League start of the season in the evening kick-off.
The Blues were unable to break down a resolute Arsenal side at Stamford Bridge around two weeks ago but have scored 15 goals in the three games around the visit of the Gunners.
Such a goal record is only beaten by Guardiola & Co., who already have 21 goals to their name in their six league games with Sergio Aguero, Gabriel Jesus and Raheem Sterling sharing 15 between them already.
Eden Hazard is likely to start after coming through Wednesday’s trip to Atletico Madrid unscathed.
City had already suffered a setback in midweek with Benjamin Mendy expected to face lengthy spell on the sidelines after suffering a knee injury in the 5-0 win over Crystal Palace.
Chelsea starting XI:
Courtois; Azpilicueta, Cahill, Rudiger; Moses, Kante, Bakayoko, Alonso; Hazard, Pedro; Morata
Man City starting XI:
Ederson; Danilo, Stones, Otamendi; Fernandinho; Walker, De Bruyne, D. Silva, B. Silva Delph; Jesus
Chelsea to Win
