It’s Maurizio Sarri’s men’s first real test since he took the reins as Chelsea manager. Locking-horns with last year’s champions is a great way to gauge where we’re at in terms of competitiveness.
It’s also the first opportunity to win silverware this season. Sarri has never won a trophy as a manager – this is a great opportunity for him to do so.
Both Sarri and Guardiola have similar footballing philosophies, so it promises to be a tactical battle like no other at the home of the England national team.
We’ve had a go at predicting how Sarri will lineup his side for the big game. Do you agree with us, Blues? Is this team strong enough to win the game?
