Manchester City set to host the blues tomorrow.
Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has confirmed that he will be without defenders Benjamin Mendy and Vincent Kompany for the visit of Chelsea on Sunday.
The duo have being ruled out in recent weeks, with Mendy not featuring since the Carabao Cup semi-final second leg against Burton Albion last month due to a knee injury, while Kompany has been struggling for fitness after a minor injury, and has not played since a 2-1 win against title rivals Liverpool at the beginning of January.
Maurizio Sarri will be going up against his friend Guardiola on Sunday, but he can expect no favours, with the Premier League champions aiming to retain the title and see off their main challengers Liverpool.
Chelsea are in good shape ahead of their trip to Manchester and had only left out Antonio Rudiger for last week’s victory against bottom-of-the-table Huddersfield.
Rudiger had a problem with his knee, but will likely return for Sunday, with Andreas Christensen having taken his place against Huddersfield. Chelsea are thought to have no other injuries.
Is this a great news for the blues and have a chance to beat city ?
