Manchester City FC VS Chelsea FC: TEAM News: Kick Off Time: Possible Line Ups And More

 


The Cityzens welcome the blues to the Etihad stadium this Saturday in what is certainly going to be a sneak peek into what is to come on the 29th of May in Istanbul, Turkey. Manchester City are heading into this game off the back of an impressive victory done with an impeccable performance against the parisians, PSG on Tuesday with Riyad Mahrez getting both goals in the match.

Chelsea themselves 24 hour's later did the job in remarkable fashion by winning 2-0 against Real Madrid to qualify to the UEFA Champions League final in grand style, goals from Timo Werner and Mason Mount on the 85th minute was enough to give them the win which made their fans jubilant and ecstatic on reaching the final of the biggest European showpiece in club football.

In the Premier League, Manchester City won against the Eagles, Crystal Palace by 2 goals to nothing with Sergio Kun Aguero scoring a goal in the game, Chelsea also did what they had to do on Saturday by winning 2-0 against the Cottagers, Fulham with Kai Havertz getting a brace in the encounter.

The Cityzens are all but guaranteed to win the English Premier League title although not yet mathematically official but they lead 2nd place Manchester United with 13 points after playing a game more.

West London based side, Chelsea are struggling, hustling and justling to get a UEFA Champions League ticket as they sit 4th with 61 points, 3 points above the hammers, West ham United who occupy fifth spot on the Log with 58 points, the blues are two points behind the foxes, Leicester City who sit in third. A commanding end to the season would do their quest for qualification a whole lot of good as it would rubber stamp their qualification, if their sojourn and battle to win the UEFA Champions League becomes unsuccessful.

Team News For Manchester City FC: John Stones serves his third and final suspension after seeing red against Aston Villa, his teammate Eric Garcia is down with illness but Pep Guardiola has no other fresh concern in that position as Aymeric Laporte should once again pair with Ruben Dias who was a juggernaut against PSG on Tuesday as he put in a fine performance in the game. Oleksandr Zinchenko might be benched for the tie as Benjamin Mendy could earn a return to action, Joao Cancelo might also start in place of Kyle Walker on the opposite side, Rodri might also begin the game in stead of Fernandinho who played well against PSG on his 36th birthday, Raheem Sterling is another player in line to start the match, Aguero might also start if Pep Guardiola changes from his false 9 tactical play for this encounter.

Team News For Chelsea FC: Mateo Kovacic was unable to play against his former side, Real Madrid after suffering an injury and the Croatian is not expected to be fit in time for this match, Jorginho and the ever energetic Ngolo Kante should start as Mason Mount would play further forward with Christian Pulisic who shockingly was on the bench in midweek, Reece James would probably fill in for Cesar Aspilicueta who might be rested for the game, Spaniard Marco Alonso is in line to feature if Ben Chilwell doesn't start this match, Thiago Silva might be rested so Kurt Zouma could have a day in the sun partnering Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christiansen.
