Thomas Tuchel's side has only suffered two defeats along the way (against West Bromwich Albion and Porto) but the 47-year-old and his players will be given their toughest examination to date this evening.
For Chelsea to beat this Manchester City side, Thomas Tuchel will have to come up with a very strong XI.
PlentyTori.ng takes a look at Chelsea's probable line up against the Citizens:
The back three of Cesar Azpilicueta, Thiago Silva and Antonio Rudiger is expected to remain intact, although the trio could face problems against the fleet-footed Manchester City attackers. Reece James and Ben Chilwell ought to be the two wing-backs again as they offer a little more defensively than Callum Hudson-Odoi and Marcos Alonso. The onus will be on them to provide the width while attacking as well.
Jorginho and Ngolo Kante are expected to occupy the central spot in midfield while Reece James and Chillwell operate from the flanks.
Havertz is expected to maintain his place as the Number 9,just like in their last match against Crystal Palace while Pulisic and Mason Mount occupy the flanks.
See illustration below:
If Chelsea sticks to this line up, they should be able to beat Manchester City. We predict a Chelsea win by 2 goals to 1.
