Chelsea vs Manchester City Live Preview

Although Chelsea’s record in recent home encounters against this opposition is relative than respectable – winning two and drawing one of the last four in all competitions – they do not come into this clash in top form.

Having remained unbeaten for his first 14 matches and kept a clean sheet in 23 of those, Thomas Tuchel has now seen his side lose two of their last four and concede seven times in those fixtures.

This does not bode well for a game against a Citizens side in high spirits after finally breaking their Champions League semi-final hoodoo with a 16th consecutive victory on the road in all competitions.

Chelsea vs Manchester City team news?

Manchester City will be without Sergio Aguero in the capital but otherwise, Guardiola has a fully fit squad to chose from.

“No not, yet,” he said when asked about Aguero.

“Yeah, (everyone else) are OK. Tired, but in a good mood. They are OK.

“Imagine playing this game after not qualifying for the Champion League semis, it would be much tougher.

A 3-1 win over Luton Town in the fourth round of the FA Cup signalled the end of Lampard’s tenure in the Stamford Bridge hotseat, and Tuchel has, unsurprisingly, navigated tests against Barnsley and Sheffield United without seeing his defence breached in the previous two rounds.

Should the Blues manage to get one over perennial cup winners Man City, it will mark the fourth time in five seasons that they have reached the showpiece event in England’s premier cup competition – with a fifth-round defeat to Manchester United in 2018-19 being the only exception – and a 15th final would put them third on the all-time list behind Arsenal (21) and Man United (20)
