Manchester City know that three points will be enough to secure the Premier League title on Saturday but they will be coming up against a Chelsea team who are on a high after securing a place in the Champions League final.
Whether Thomas Tuchel’s side will be fully focused when they kick-off at the Etihad on Saturday evening, though, we shall have to wait and see. They are gunning for a top-four finish so you’d expect this to be a very competitive game.
In terms of team news, City have no injury concerns but they will be without John Stones who will serve the final game of his three-match ban after his sending off against Aston Villa.
Manchester City’s Predicted XI To Play Chelsea:
Ederson, Cancelo, Dias, Laporte, Zinchenko, Silva, Rodri, Gundogan, Mahrez, De Bruyne, Foden
Chelsea have just one fitness doubt, with midfielder Mateo Kovacic having taken longer than expected to recover from a hamstring injury.
Chelsea’s Predicted XI:
Mendy, James, Azpilicueta, Christensen, Rudiger, Chilwell, Kante, Jorginho, Mount, Havertz, Pulisic
