It is worth noting that they will be facing each other for the first time after their Champions League encounter in Porto which Chelsea won thanks to Kai Harvertz lone goal.
However, the Blues need to be wary of some of Manchester City's players and their list goes thus.
(1) Kevin De Bruyne

The Belgian international is always a terror to Chelsea's defense and all eyes should be on him whenever he is making those dreadful runs in the final third of the pitch.
De Bruyne has scored at least 3 goals against Chelsea in their previous meetings.

The England international will be meeting Chelsea for the first time since he made his big-money move from Aston Villa.
The Blues need to be careful of Grealish, he created problems for Chelsea the last time they met and he even led Aston Villa to a 2-1 win.
(3) Raheem Sterling

The England international is one of the potent forward in the Manchester City squad.
Sterling scored twice in City's 6-0 demolition of Chelsea back in 2019 but he has fired blank in his last two meetings.
(4) Ilkay Gündogan

The German international was City's best player when Kevin De Bruyne got injured during the first half of last season.
Gündogan won back-to-back premier league player of the month last season and he continues to be a threat to Chelsea whenever he comes up against them.
