English Premier League

Starting XI: Man City v Chelsea

English Premier League
 
Teams: Manchester City v Chelsea
 
Date: 10 February 2019
 
Venue: Etihad
 
Manchester City's title charge will once again be put to the test when they welcome Chelsea to Stamford Bridge this evening - Here's how they line up.
 
The match is scheduled to get underway at 18h30.
 
The Citizens moved top of the Premier League standings with a 2-0 victory over Everton, but Liverpool's win over Bournemouth saw them drop to second spot.
 
Victory for Pep Guardiola's troops this evening will see them return to the summit of the standings, although they will have played one game more than the Reds.
 
Maurizio Sarri's charges, meanwhile, come into the clash on the back of a 5-0 thumping of relegation-threatened Huddersfield Town last weekend.
 
The Blues will certainly be relying on Gonzalo Higuain to bang in the goals after he bagged a brace in the win over the Terriers, while Eden Hazard also got back to scoring ways.
 
Chelsea will be hoping to replicate their performance from earlier in the campaign when they claimed a 2-0 win over the Citizens at Stamford Bridge.
 
Here's how they line up:
 
Manchester City: Chelsea Ederson, Walker, Stones, Laporte, Zinchenko, Fernandinho, Gundogan, De Bruyne, Sane, Bernardo, Aguero.
 
Chelsea: Kepa; Azpilicueta, David Luiz, Rudiger, Alonso; Kante, Jorginho, Barkley; Hazard, Higuain, Pedro.
