Manchester City vs Chelsea Lineups, Team News and TV Channel

Man City take on Chelsea in the Premier League this afternoon as both teams will face again in the Champions League final in Istanbul. Here we shall look how Man City and Blues will lineups today.

Manchester City can win the Premier League title tonight if they beat Chelsea at the Etihad Stadium, in what will also be a dress rehearsal of the Champions League final.

The match takes place exactly three weeks before the Champions League final in Istanbul on 29 May, but also less than a month after Chelsea defeated City at Wembley to advance to the FA Cup final and end their quadruple bid.

Thomas Tuchel’s side defeated Real Madrid in their Champions League semi-final on Wednesday and will also be looking to boost their Premier League top four hopes with a win.

But Pep Guardiola’s side will be out to wrap up the Premier League title – their third in four seasons under the coach – with three games to spare.

Matteo Kovacic could return for Thomas Tuchel’s side after missing the last seven matches with a thigh injury, but it is unlikely he’d start against the Premier League leaders. Chelsea have no other injury problems ahead of the match. Both sides could rotate following their Champions League involvement in midweek.

Possible line-ups

Man City: Ederson; Cancelo, Diaz, Laporte, Mendy; Rodri, Gundogan, De Bruyne; Sterling, Foden, Mahrez

Chelsea: Mendy; James, Azpilicueta, Silva, Zouma, Alonso; Jorginho, Kante; Pulisic, Havertz, Ziyech

When is it on?

The match kicks off at 5:30pm GMT on Saturday 8 May.
