Manchester City vs. Chelsea

Chelsea should spring a surprise on their opponents by starting the England global and he could make a huge difference at the Etihad. Antonio Rüdiger has been given the nod ahead of Andreas Christensen in defence, while Pedro starts ahead of Willian.

After playing a key role in Manchester City's 6-0 demolition of Chelsea at the Etihad Stadium, Aguero went to collect the matchball as per the custom for any player who scores three goals in a game.

After withstanding some early pressure from the visitors which saw the Anfield crowd become restless, Liverpool took the lead on 24 minutes as Mane scored for a fourth consecutive match.

Bournemouth, who were without main striker Callum Wilson, offered little in reply and will be concerned at once again losing heavily away from home against one of the Premier League's big six.

Guardiola's side now have three cup fixtures before returning to league action, with Newport County up first in the FA Cup fifth round on Saturday.

The defeat was the first time the Blues had conceded four goals before half time in a Premier League match and the final result was their heaviest defeat in any competition since 1991. He did not have to wait much longer, however, as Sterling was felled in the box by Cesar Azpilicueta.

There seemed to be no let up from City with De Bruyne firing a free-kick at Kepa and Aguero shooting into the side-netting.

And at that stage the floodgates were blown open as Chelsea completely capitulated.
