Manchester City: Team News
Fernandinho missed Manchester City’s 3-0 win over Arsenal on Thursday through injury and remains a big doubt here.
Raheem Sterling returned to training ahead of Thursday’s game but was not risked. He could return here.
Vincent Kompany and Nicolas Otamendi have started the last two matches, so John Stones and Aymeric Laporte will hope to benefit from playing time here.
Kyle Walker limped off against Arsenal in midweek but Pep Guardiola is confident nothing is seriously wrong.
Fabian Delph is still suspended for the hosts, so Danilo or Oleksandr Zinchenko will deputise at left-back

David Luiz, Ross Barkley and Tiemoué Bakayoko are all doubts ahead of Sunday’s trip to the Etihad.
Antonio Conte must decide between Alvaro Morata, Eden Hazard or Olivier Giroud through the middle.

Manchester City vs Chelsea: Prediction
Manchester City are a nightmare to most of their opponents. Their recent oppression was against Arsenal as they beat them twice in one week with a 3-0 score line.
The Citizens are the favorites in this game, but having played a game on Thursday and still have a Champions League game on Wednesday they may have to make some squad changes to avoid fatigue.
This will favour the London team but we still don’t expect them to win this one.
