Man City are currently on an 11-game win streak and come into Saturday clash on the back of an impressive midweek performance showing against Copenhagen in the Champions League. That said, The Citizens have only won one game against the 'big six' Premier League teams this season, and when City visited Stamford Bridge in November, it ended in a 4-4 draw. This time, Kevin De Bruyne is back and in rampant form – will he be the deciding factor in the title race? 

Chelsea’s season has been wholly underwhelming, and with fan unrest growing Mauricio Pochettino‘s job is looking vulnerable. Fortunately for the Chelsea boss, Connor Gallagher rescued three points against his former team, Crystal Palace, on Monday. A win against second place City could put Blues fans back in the pink. 

Lineups: 

Man City XI: Ederson, Walker (C), Akanji, Dias, Ake, Rodrigo, De Bruyne, Foden, Alvarez, Doku, Haaland 

Chelsea XI: Petrovic; Gusto, Disasi, Colwill, Chilwell; Caicedo, Fernandez; Palmer, Gallagher, Sterling; Jackson
