TIMELINE

How Chelsea could line up against Manchester City

By , Editor | 2mo
Sports Mole looks at how Chelsea could line up for Saturday's Stamford Bridge showdown with Premier League leaders and champions Manchester City.

Chelsea welcome Premier League leaders Manchester City to Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening looking to arrest a recent slump in form.

Maurizio Sarri's side have won just one of their last four league games and have lost two of their last three, including a shock 2-1 defeat at the hands of Wolverhampton Wanderers in midweek.

A 10-point gap now separates Chelsea from Pep Guardiola's side when just a few weeks ago the Londoners looked like potential title challengers, and defeat on Saturday could end any lingering hopes of clawing their way back into the race.

Here, Sports Mole looks at how Chelsea could line up against the champions.

Doubtful: Victor Moses (back), Ross Barkley (ankle)

Sarri handed rare starts to Andreas Christensen and Cesc Fabregas at Molineux, but both are expected to drop out of the side for this one as the Blues return to full strength.

Jorginho and David Luiz will return in their place, but Ruben Loftus-Cheek could keep his spot in the side after scoring against Wolves. An ankle problem for Ross Barkley is likely to help his cause, although Mateo Kovacic is also in contention for a midfield spot.

There could be further changes up front, with Alvaro Morata once again failing to impress against Wolves and facing a battle to keep his place in the side under pressure from Olivier Giroud.

Willian was also underwhelming at Molineux and so Pedro - who has five Premier League goals to his name already this season - could come into the front three alongside Eden Hazard.
