Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has named his starting eleven and substitutes for his side’s Premier League clash against Manchester City at the Etihad this afternoon.


The Blues’ title hopes are hanging by the thread at the moment as they are currently ten points behind their opponents and league leaders Manchester City.



Malang Sarr will continue to partner Thiago Silva and Antonio Rudiger in the back three in the absence of Andreas Christensen, who is out with Covid.


N’Golo Kante has returned to the starting eleven and he will partner Mateo Kovacic in the middle of the park for Chelsea today at the Etihad.



Romelu Lukaku will lead the line for Chelsea, with Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic providing attacking input from behind the forward.


Jorginho, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Kai Havertz are some of the options Chelsea have on the bench today at the Etihad.
