Manchester City vs Chelsea

Chelsea are set to play out one of their biggest games of the season on Saturday.

The west Londoners face a trip to Manchester for a must-not-lose clash with Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City.

Chelsea head into the game sat 10 points adrift of current league leaders, Man City. Should they lose to the Sky Blues on Saturday and fall 13 points behind top spot, you would have to guess that their title hopes will be all but over this term.

A draw, which would keep that gap at 10 points, it still not ideal but it is obviously better than 13, whilst a win would close that gap to seven and pile the pressure on the Manchester outfit.

Thomas Tuchel on team news & midfielder return

Ahead of the Manchester City match, Thomas Tuchel would speak to the press on Friday.

When doing so the German discussed a number of topics, including team news; confirming that Ben Chilwell, Reece James, Trevoh Chalobah and Andreas Christensen will be out:

“No news which is good news. Trevoh will be out, Reece James out, Ben Chilwell out.

“We have one new positive Covid test with Andreas Christensen so he will be out of the game.”

Tuchel also confirmed that Kenedy has returned from his loan with Flamengo:

“Kenedy is back and I am very happy about it. It’s a huge opportunity for him to make his mark at this club and this team. We will try now, from today on, to push and support him.”

Kenedy is a left-sided midfielder by trade. Will Tuchel use him as a central midfielder, winger or maybe even as a left-wing-back now Chilwell is out?
