Ahead of their crunch clash later tonight, Chelsea manager Frank Lampard and Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling are in a miniature war of words.

Chelsea FC Starting XI Prediction vs Manchester City

jorginho

Chelsea FC manager Frank Lampard is expected to make some changes to his starting XI when his side hosts a Manchester City team that will be sans Sergio Aguero.

Although there will be a few changes, don’t expect a full wholesale makeover. Having achieved a solid lead in the race for the final top four slot, the Blues need to stay the course during the run-in. On the other hand, City have dominated this fixture in recent seasons, winning six of the last seven meetings across all competitions.

Manchester City Starting XI Prediction at Chelsea FC

Manchester City have suffered five of their seven losses this season on the road so their next match, a Thursday night clash at Chelsea FC, is certainly a tricky and challenging one. Then again, you still got to like their chances in southwest London, because no side has scored more away goals this season than the defending champions.

City have also not lost back to back road games since 2018, so they should get a result of some sort at the Bridge in midweek. We’ll see how they fare with Gabriel Jesus now deputizing for Sergio Aguero, as the usual line leader is now out with a knee injury.

Chelsea vs Man City Team News: Aguero, Hudson-Odoi, Tomori

Manchester City’s all-time leading goalscorer, Sergio Kun Aguero, walked off the pitch and hobbled straight down the tunnel after injuring his knee during City’s 5-0 whomping of Burnley FC yesterday. He could be done for the rest of the season, with reports that he might need surgery to repair the problem.

He’ll now see a specialist in Barcelona in order to determine the way forward. City manager Pep Guardiola made it clear- the prognosis is pessimistic.

Man City vs Burnley Team News: Sane, Garcia, Wood, Barnes

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola met the media today, virtually, and the session included a bombshell- Leroy Sane won’t be staying at the club long term. Heavily linked with a move to Bayern Munich all spring long, this is not a surprise, but now it’s official.

“Leroy said he doesn’t want to extend the contract so it means he wants to leave and it’s going to happen this summer or at the end of the contract,” Guardiola said via the Zoom app that we have all now come to know and love during the lockdown.

Manchester City Starting XI vs Burnley FC

Manchester City was impressive in the way they dispatched Arsenal on Wednesday night, and they are heavily favored to win again on the weekend. If you’re betting on this match, like you would at w88, you see the odds looking like this: typically, a Manchester City would be win backed at 1/7, a Burnley FC victory priced at 18/1 with a draw to be had at 13 /2. The reigning champions have certainly shaken off the rust from the three month layoff as they look to make it two from two victories in project restart.

They’ll welcome Burnley FC, a mid-table side, in on Sunday night. Let’s take a look at who Pep Guardiola may select in his first team for this clash, having pretty much all his options available.
