Manchester City are looking to make it three wins from three since the Premier League restart, but face a difficult test at Chelsea tonight.
City have easily dispatched Arsenal and Burnley in the past week, but now come up against fourth-placed Chelsea, who are themselves looking to hold on to their grip on the final Champions League place.
Pep Guardiola hinted he may rotate players to prioritise Sunday’s FA Cup quarter final at Newcastle, but that could still see the likes of Raheem Sterling, Kyle Walker, Benjamin Mendy and Kevin de Bruyne return to the starting XI. One player who will definitely be out is Sergio Aguero, who underwent knee surgery yesterday following a challenge in the Burnley win.
City’s fortunes tonight will be closely followed by Liverpool, who know anything but a win for Guardiola’s men will finally secure the Premier League title for the league leaders. If City prevent that tonight, then Liverpool will get another opportunity to seal the title against City at the Etihad next week.
