    Since we smashed them with a covid riddled squad in January they've had hoodoo over us , start of a big week with Chelsea, PSG and Liverpool all away in 8 days, get my extra jabs for my visit to Anfield week on Sunday.

    A narrow Chelsea win seems likely.

    I think we’ll lineup like this. A win here would be massive for us with City, Liverpool, Spurs, and Arsenal all out the way.

    Dave AC Silva Rudiger Alonso
    Kante Jorginho Kovacic
    Lukaku Havertz

    I actually think Pep is going to park the bus for this one and go for the point so expect a borefest.
    My prediction:

    Chelsea 0 Man City 0

    Mount and the ever reliable Pulisic out for this.

    We've got strongest XI out so may best team win, 3 points be amazing but 1 will do.

    That’s a good team selection for this game…. Kante Jorginho Kovacic in midfield. Just hope Kante can last the 90 minutes

    Should be an interesting game this given the sides out.

    Werner starting this is intriguing. It's been Havertz and Mount all season. Says a lot about how Chelsea will approach the game.

    Mount’s out injured for this one and just before the game Tuchel mentioned we’ve gone with Werner for his pace and intensity on and off the ball while Havertz and Ziyech both look a touch out of form at the moment. All fair comments.

    Seems with James, Kante, Kovacic and Alonso we’ve got some great players to drive the ball up the pitch and Werner and Lukaku thrive on the counter too. Will certainly give City something to worry about if they’re looking to play a high line.

    Ah ok, I wasn't aware of Mount's injury.

    City are going to need to be perfect at the back.

    So much for the letting the game flowTM approach.

    Two light as a feather fouls given already.

    City looking the stronger side so far but not really creating anything just yet.

    Patience is going to be key today. We will get chances.

    I'd say Alonso is having a noticably poor game so far. Lots of errors.

    Agreed. Given the ball away loads.
