Chelsea v Manchester City preview

The Chelsea wing-back who is now injured also missed their 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Goalkeeping errors contributed to the opening goals as Hazard shot through Willy Caballero and Thibaut Courtois gifted City an equaliser, scored by Sergio Aguero.

"What happened in that game ... there happened many, many things". The excellent David Silva, in particular, did not deserve to experience defeat.

But City manager Pep Guardiola was infuriated on the touchline once again, less than 10 minutes later, when Fernandinho brought down Pedro Rodriguez.

Conte recently conceded Chelsea's squad was inferior to that of City and Manchester United.

Guardiola, at Barcelona and Bayern Munich, had never experienced home and away championship defeats to the same opposition manager.

He said: "For Chelsea, the focus they have is to win the title". Next they face Bournemouth.

Goalkeeper: Thibaut Courtois showed no sign of the hip injury that required treatment in the build-up to the Palace clash so the Belgian global is expected to keep his place between the sticks tomorrow.

It will surely end with a Premier League winner's medal to keep the one from 2014-15 company. Fabian Delph made his first league start of the campaign.

"I think, now, his (Luiz's) knee is better than before". The Spanish global has found the back of the net 17 times in the Premier League this term and needs just four goals in his side's remaining eight games to record his best ever tally in England's top tier. Bacary Sagna remains sidelined but Pablo Zabaleta is fit and will most likely replace Jesus Navas at right-back.

Attack: With Moses returning that will allow Pedro to move back in to a more advanced role after deputising on the right wing against Palace.

Courtois saved when substitute Nolito picked out Aguero with a brilliant raking ball and the goalkeeper and his team-mates breathed a sigh of relief from the resulting corner, when Stones lifted inexplicably over the bar to leave Chelsea's advantage at the top intact.

But with David Silva in the Hazard role, City were showing signs of life at the other end and after Aguero, following a one-two with Silva, had been denied by Courtois, they levelled. He tucked in his 27th goal of the season. The Germany forward might have looked for a penalty, but refreshingly he tried to score and Courtois blocked.
