How could Chelsea line up against Manchester City ? Here we provide the Chelsea probable line up against Manchester City.
Chelsea has resumed their Premier League campaign with a hard fought win over Aston Villa. A couple of goals from Pulisic and Giroud within two minutes made the Blues to complete a comeback.
Second half substitute Pulisic was able to make impact in the game after showing his concentrated presence in the box. Ruben Loftus-Cheek was given first Premier League start of the season but was unable to mark his strong return.

After failing to fulfill the expectation in the first half, Chelsea boss Lampard introduce the American skipper Pulisic and he proved his worth with a well taken goal to level the score.
Kepa will be under the bar, which is obvious. There is possibility of playing the same back four, which was used against Aston Villa. With Tomori injured, Lampard does have problem with the center backs. Nevertheless, Lampard might go yet again with Rudiger- Christensen pair at the center. Zouma could replace any one of them.
Talking about the mid, we can expect some change in there. Jorginho will be back for the match after serving a match suspension. Kante is a obvious pick for the City match. With Billy Gilmour good at holding mid, he might get start ahead of Kovacic. However, I will go for Kovacic to start today, alongside Jorginho and Kante.
Tammy Abhram might not get start yet again with Oliver Giroud looking favourite to start against City. Pulisic seems obvious pick up for the left with boss wondering between Mount and Willian to start at the right. Or else, Mount could start alongside Willian in the center zone, replacing Kovacic.
Chelsea Possible Line up: Kepa; Alonso, Rudiger, Christensen, Azpilicueta; Kante, Kovacic/Gilmour/Mount, Jorginho; Pulisic, Giroud, Willian/Mount.
