Full Chelsea squad revealed for Manchester City Premier League clash as Christensen misses out
Chelsea will be looking to close the gap on Premier League leaders Manchester City this weekend when Thomas Tuchel takes his side to the Etihad Stadium on Saturday.
The Blues currently sit 10 points behind Pep Guardiola’s side, knowing a win will be imperative in keeping their faint title hopes alive this season.
Tuchel has only managed one win in the past five in the league, while Guardiola has his team on an 11-game winning streak amid a great run of form. The reverse fixture led to Chelsea’s first loss of the season, though the German coach insists he has learned something from the slim defeat. infoguidenigeria
Speaking ahead of the game, he said: “My approach was the wrong approach, it made us too passive and defensive. It wasn’t meant like this but it turned out like this. So lesson learned.”
The Blues will, however, be without wing-backs Reece James and Ben Chilwell, who are both longer-term injuries.
