The final aside, we predict there would be a couple of changes to the Man City’s team to face Chelsea today.

John Stones is out of the game, as he is serving the final game of his three-match domestic suspension. Aymeric Laporte is likely to accompany Ruben Dias in central defence.

Benjamin Mendy will still most likely retain his spot at left back this weekend over Zinchenko.

Rodrigo could replace Fernandinho in defensive midfield after being an unused sub against PSG.

Gundogan an De Bruyne should be the most likely picks for the central midfield role. While Aguero returns to the XI up top.

Manchester City’s expected Starting XI to face Chelsea: Ederson; Cancelo, Laporte, Dias, Mendy; Rodrigo, Gundogan, De Bruyne; Sterling, Aguero, Mahrez.
