Manchester City: Now that he's healthy, all eyes will be on attempting to contain Erling Haaland but Chelsea can't lose track of Phil Foden who is playing his best soccer in a City shirt and scoring more goals since the return of Kevin De Bruyne. Jack Grealish will also miss the match but Bernardo Silva and Mateo Kovacic could both be in contention boosting the midfield ranks.

Chelsea: Cole Palmer returns to the Ethiad to face his former club as he and Conor Gallagher have been central to Chelsea's attack. Reece James has returned to light training but Benoit Badiashile will miss the match along with Thiago Silva, giving Mauricio Pochettino decisions to make in defense. Chelsea will have to try and stay on the front foot in the match to avoid being overwhelmed but that will provide chances on the counter.


Foden keeps his good form going pacing City with a brace in the match as the defense struggles without Gvardiol present. Pick: Manchester City 3, Chelsea 1
