Chelsea will take on Premier League rival Manchester City in the early hour of Saturday, for an EPL clash. The match is expected to be a tough one for the Blues due to the quality of players at Manchester City.
The Blues are currently topping Premier League table with 31 points after 13 games. Their current run-of-form had seen them conceding just a goal in their last seven matches.
Key changes will be expected from Antonio Conte, if his men are to secure three maximum points at Etihad stadium.
The battle for victory is expected to be in the midfield and as a result, we expect Willian to come in for Spain international star Pedro in the attacking line.
Although the Spaniard has been on a great run-of-form, we however believe Willian will be a better player in this match. The Brazilian has both the energy and the tackling abilities to bring down tough midfielders.
Aside from Willian coming in for Pedro, we expect the same team that defeated Tottenham over the weekend to start.
Here is how we expect Conte to line up his men with Spain international goal poacher Diego Costa leading the attack.
Goalie: Thibaut Courtois
Defenders: Cesar Azpilicueta, David Luiz and Gary Cahill
Midfielders: Victor Moses, N’golo Kante, Nemanja Matic and Marcos Alonso
Attackers: Willian, Eden Hazard and Diego Costa
