Tonight’s match would have had much more of a spark had City not dropped two leads against Arsenal at weekend, but when Manchester City play Chelsea, it is always one of the biggest games of the Premier League calendar.

A win tonight would move Pep Guardiola’s side ever closure to securing a top four finish, while for Chelsea it would move them a step closer to becoming champions, as they seemed destined for now.

Mike Dean is tonight’s referee and here are the teams selected by Guardiola and his counterpart, Antonio Conte:

Chelsea XI: Courtois, Zouma, David Luiz, Cahill (c), Azpilicueta, Kante, Fabregas, Alonso, Pedro, Diego Costa, Hazard

Manchester City XI: Caballero, Clichy, Stones, Kompany (c), Fernandinho, Delph, Sané, Silva, De Bruyne, Navas, Aguero
