Thomas Tuchel has opted for Kai Havertz over Christian Pulisic and keeps a three at the back formation.

CHELSEA XI: Mendy, James, Azpilicueta, Silva, Rudiger, Chilwell, Kante, Jorginho, Mount, Havertz, Werner

Meawhile, Raheem Sterling and Phil Foden BOTH start for Pep Guardiola’s men tonight.

Oleksandr Zinchenko gets the nod ahead of Joao Cancelo in defence too.

An interesting dynamic in midfield as Fernandinho and Rodri are both left out.

Ilkay Gundogan hobbled out of training yesterday but gets the nod to start tonight.

Remarkable really that he goes without Fernandinho or Rodri in there.

Chelsea go pretty much as expected and will hope to contain what seems to be a ridiculously attack-heavy City side.

But we know they can be a handful on the counter.

MAN CITY XI: Ederson, Walker, Stones, Dias, Zinchenko, Gundogan, Bernardo Silva, de Bruyne (c), Sterling, Foden, Mahrez
