On Saturday, the 25th of September, Chelsea will be hosting Manchester City at Stamford Bridge for the English Premier League matchday 6 of the season.

The European Champions will be going into this contest on the back of a 3-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur at the Tottenham Hotspurs Stadium in North London while on the other hand, Pep Guardiola's side was held to a goalless draw during their last league match against Southampton at the Etihad Stadium.

However, Thomas Tuchel should field Kepa Arrizabalaga when they play against Manchester City on Saturday and I will highlight my reason for saying so.

Firstly, Kepa had a fantastic game against Spurs and he should be allowed to build on that impressive run when they play against the Premier League Champions. That will boost his confidence going forward and the team will enjoy it in the long run.

Secondly, Mendy is currently nursing a hip injury which he picked against Zenit Saint Petersburg in the Champions League and Tuchel is hoping to integrate him back into the squad ahead of Saturday's game.

However, I feel Kepa should be allowed to take charge of the match against Pep Guardiola's boys so that Mendy will have enough rest and be better prepared for the club when they take on Juventus in the Champions League, which is a bigger fixture.Photo Credit: Daily Mail
