EPL: Chelsea Starting Lineup vs Manchester City Revealed

BBC football expert Mark Lawrenson has given his prediction for the forthcoming Premier League clash between Manchester City and Chelsea FC at the Etihad Stadium. The Blues are higher in the table than most expected with the fine form of Tammy Abraham and Christian Pulisic, while City has slipped a tad with the Blues and Leicester City off to hot starts.

They travel to Man City looking for a seventh-straight Premier League win as they now sit one place and one point ahead of Pep Guardiola's side.

For all the entertainment Chelsea have provided going forward, how they defend against Manchester City on Saturday evening is absolutely crucial.

City's defeat at Liverpool before the global break left the champions nine points adrift of the league leaders, with Leicester and Chelsea leapfrogging Guardiola's fourth-placed side, each sitting just one point ahead of Manchester City.

Lawrenson has predicted a 2-0 win for the Cityzens and they would certainly need to earn such a result, given they have kept one clean sheet in the past six matches in all competitions. Pep Guardiola's side will be seeking vengeance from their Liverpool defeat and are lethal on the counter-attack - something Chelsea's style of play leaves them vulnerable to.

Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling score in the first half, the defense contains the Blues' attack, and City wins.
