No Natural Striker, Gabriel Jesus On Bench – Manchester City Team vs Chelsea Confirmed


Fixture: Chelsea vs Manchester City
Competition: Premier League
Kick-off: 17:30 (UK time)

Manchester City have announced their team and substitutes to go into battle against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in a Premier League contest this evening.

The Citizens have been knocked off the top of the table by Liverpool, but can retake the lead if they get a draw in the capital tonight.

Manchester City are without prolific striker Sergio Aguero, who has a muscle issue, while Kevin De Bruyne remains unavailable for action.

Boss Pep Guardiola has Ederson in goal, while in defence he opts for John Stones and Aymeric Laporte as the centre-back pairing  Fernandinho will look to protect the back four, while David Silva, Riyad Mahrez, Leroy Sane and Bernardo Silva play. Raheem Sterling also starts.

The Citizens have a bench packed with stars if Guardiola wants to make changes, including Gabriel Jesus and Phil Foden.


Manchester City Team vs Chelsea

Ederson, Walker, Stones, Laporte, Delph, Fernandinho, Silva (C), Mahrez, Sane, Bernardo, Sterling

Substitutes: Muric, Danilo, Kompany, Gundogan, Otamendi, Jesus, Foden
