Chelsea will face Manchester City today in a clash which will go a long way in shaping the manner in which the next few months will be played out in the Premier League.
Incidentally, the Blues are the only ‘big' side this season to win against City and there will be a slight psychological advantage for Sarri's men going into today's match.
Antonio Rudiger should return after a minor knee niggle kept him out against Huddersfield Town.
Jorginho has been a constant in the holding midfield role.
N'Golo Kante is set to continue in the right midfield slot.
His attacking contributions have grown in frequency since his opening goal against City and Pep will be mindful of not ceding too much space or time to the Frenchman on the edge of the box.
