The number 1 team in Premier League will have some things to consider before clashing with the last time champions. Chelsea had the upper hand over City last time when they met. A Marcos Alonso goal in the extra time gave the lead for the Blues. But you can not take the past as in what to look for in future as you are never short of the competition in the premier league. Chelsea is currently unbeaten in the league with four wins and one draw in the league. The only hold they had was against Liverpool in an away encounter. Therefore, Thomas Tuchel‘s men will be confident of their game plan against a strong side in Manchester City.
Tuchel has already confirmed that Mason Mount will be out for this game. He had picked up a minor knock during our Carabao Cup win over Aston Villa. So, he will be on the sideline along with Christian Pulisic who was already on the injured players’ list. So, make your Dream11 team prediction according to that. Read the full injury news here.
Comebacks into the team
The good news for the team is that Edouard Mendy will be in front of the goal as he will come back from the injury. Chelsea has conceded only one goal in the last five Premier League matches and Mendy was responsible for that success rate. So, make your Premier League Fantasy team according to that.

Team News: Manchester City
City, currently at number five had some injury concerns over the last week. While they were handed a tough loss against Spurs, they came back stronger to pull things off. Guardiola’s men have been backing the form of Kevin de Bryune and Jack Grealish to give them the balance they need to defend their title. Ruben Dias holds the back for them with nearly 419 passes (most between the two teams) this season. Against a quality team like Chelsea, Guardiola will be hoping his strikers will be good enough to pull off an outstanding away win this match week.
Aymeric Laporte, Rodrigo, John Stones and Oleksandr Zinchenko are still not sure whether they will start this match or not. Meanwhile, Guardiola has confirmed that Gundogan is also carrying an injury. Pep has told that a number of players are still not fully fit. However, he has confirmed any names before the Chelsea vs Man City clash.
