Chelsea have picked up where they left off from last season, with the Blues reheating 13 points from a possible 15 so far this campaign, while looking far more potent up front thanks to the addition of Romelu Lukaku.

While keeper Edouard Mendy and Christian Pulisic are set to miss out for the home side, City have even greater selection issues to contend with, with John Stones, Aymeric Laporte and Oleksandr Zinchenko among a long list of stars doubtful for this game.
