Manchester City v Chelsea: FA Cup Preview, Team News and Prediction

Chelsea face Manchester City for the second time in four days for an FA Cup third round clash on Sunday afternoon.

Graham Potter’s side were defeated by one goal, scored by Riyad Mahrez, on Thursday night in the Premier League meeting at Stamford Bridge.

Man City weren’t at their best and Chelsea could count themselves unfortunate not to come away with a point in the capital as their league struggles continued, leaving them down in 10th place.

Chelsea will be hoping to put their league form to one side this weekend when they make the trip up north and strike revenge on the Citizens who have already beaten them twice this season, including victory in the Carabao Cup third round back in November.

Potter has a selection headache with ten senior players out with injury ahead of the cup tie.

So how could Chelsea line-up against Manchester City?

Possible XI: Kepa, Azpilicueta, Silva, Koulibaly, Hall, Zakaria, Chukwuemeka, Kovacic, Ziyech, Havertz, Hutchinson
