Chelsea has been on fire this season and now go into perhaps our biggest fixture so far. We came out on top against Manchester City three times at the tail end of last season, and it would be more than sweet to see Thomas Tuchel outsmart Pep Guardiola yet again.
Chelsea top the table with 13 points to show from their opening five matches, while Man City occupy fifth, having collected 10 points from their first five league games of the 2021-22 campaign.
Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy has missed his team's last two matches due to a knock, but Tuchel is hopeful that the club's number one will be able to recover in time for Saturday's contest.
Christian Pulisic remains out with an ankle problem, while Mason Mount will miss the contest with a knock that he picked up against Villa in the EFL Cup.
The English club released the starting lineup for today's game on their social media accounts.
Chelsea confirmed starting lineup: Mendy; Christensen, Thiago Silva, Rudiger; Azpilicueta, Kante, Jorginho, Alonso; Havertz, Lukaku, Werner
