Chelsea v Manchester City, Premier League: live blog; strong points
Welcome to the weekend! In the next couple of hours, we’ll know if it’s a good weekend or a bad weekend.
We won three (3!) In a row against Manchester city, including of course the Champions League final four months ago. Can we do four in a row? No one has ever done that to Pep Guardiola!
No big surprises from Tuchel or Guardiola in the rosters, as we roll with the 3-5-2 from the start. Our best against their best.
