Manchester City Vs Chelsea: Team News, Line Ups, Betting And Odds

 Manchester City play host to Chelsea at the Etihad Stadium in the Premier League’s most eye-catching fixture of the weekend.

Liverpool’s victory over Bournemouth on Saturday has propelled the Reds back to the top of the standings, but Pep Guardiola’s men can leapfrog them with a home win, albeit having played a game more.

Meanwhile, Chelsea, whose Europa League challenge starts anew in midweek, have slipped out of the top four and need at least a draw to jump resurgent Manchester United.
