Chelsea vs Manchester City: Premier League prediction, team news, line-ups, start time, live, TV


Chelsea face the sternest test of their Premier League title credentials yet on Saturday as Manchester City come to town.

The champions did the double over Pep Guardiola's side last season with Eden Hazard scoring three times, and the Belgian will make just his second League start of the season in the evening kick-off. 





The Blues were unable to break down a resolute Arsenal side at Stamford Bridge around two weeks ago but have scored 15 goals in the three games around the visit of the Gunners.

Such a goal record is only beaten by Guardiola' team, who already have 21 goals to their name in their six league games - but Sergio Aguero will miss out after being injured during a car crash.




Chelsea host Manchester City at Stamford Bridge with kick-off scheduled for 5.30pm on Saturday, September 30.

TV and live online coverage

The match will be televised live on BT Sport 1, with coverage starting from 5pm. BT Sport subscribers will be able to stream the match online on BT Sport's website and on the BT Sport app.

Alternatively, you can follow all the build-up and action from 4.30pm with NEW GERSY  blog.

Team news

Man. City

Hazard is likely to start after coming through Wednesday's trip to Atletico Madrid unscathed.

There remains slight doubts over Pedro's involvement but Antonio Conte was more positive over the Spaniard in midweek after naming him on the bench.

David Luiz is suspended meaning Andreas Christensen is likely to start in defence.

Alvaro Morata was seen limping through the mixed zone after the win over Atleti, but Conte insists that the striker is fine.

Conte said on Friday he will check every player before deciding on any late changes, though Danny Drinkwater is definitely ruled out.

Chelsea

Guardiola has confirmed that striker Aguero has suffered suspected broken ribs after being involved in a road accident in the Netherlands on his day off on Thursday.

Aguero joins Benjamin Mendy on the sidelines, with the wing-back set to miss the majority of the season after suffering a cruciate knee ligament injury in the 5-0 win over Crystal Palace.

Predicted line-ups

Chelsea starting XI: Courtois; Azpilicueta, Cahill, Christensen; Moses, Kante, Bakayoko, Alonso; Hazard, Pedro; Morata




Man City starting XI: Ederson; Danilo, Stones, Otamendi; Fernandinho; Walker, De Bruyne, D. Silva, B. Silva Delph; Jesus
