Chelsea set to play there second game against city on sunday.
Sarri boys trash Huddersfield last weekend with the scoreline 5-0 at Stamford bridge, after a bad performance against Bournemouth.
Less than two months ago, Maurizio Sarri’s side went from a shock 2-1 defeat on the road against Wolverhampton Wanderers to an even more surprising 2-0 victory over Pep Guardiola’s defending top-flight champions at Stamford Bridge, in less than 72 hours.
It was a win that at the time, seemed a near-impossibility and given the Blues’ recent inconsistencies, a carbon copy of this on Sunday would be just as, if not, even more surprising, especially combined with City’s recent resurgence in form.
As they prepare to lock horns just a fortnight prior to the Carabao Cup final, which will put these two Premier League champions of past and present against one another, here is who we predict will play for Sarri’s side for their trip to Manchester.
Predicted line-up: (4-3-3) Kepa Arrizabalaga; Cesar Azpilicueta, Antonio Rudiger, David Luiz, Marcos Alonso; N’Golo Kante, Jorginho, Ross Barkley; Willian, Gonzalo Higuain, Eden Hazard
Predicted substitutes: Willy Caballero, Andreas Christensen, Emerson, Mateo Kovacic, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Pedro, Olivier Giroud
