Confirmed - Manchester City v Chelsea line-ups

Etihad Stadium

Here’s how Manchester City and Chelsea line up for the Premier League clash this afternoon, kick-off 13:30 GMT.

Manchester City: Hart, Zabaleta, Kolo Toure, Nastasic, Clichy, Garcia, Milner, Rodwell, Silva, Yaya Toure, Aguero.

Subs: Pantilimon, Lescott, Kolarov, Nasri, Sinclair, Tevez, Dzeko.

Chelsea: Cech, Ivanovic, Cahill, David Luiz, Cole, Mikel, Lampard, Ramires, Mata, Hazard, Ba.

Subs: Turnbull, Azpilicueta, Terry, Bertrand, Oscar, Moses, Torres.

Manchester City have never been under more pressure to win a game of this magnitude. Manchester United are currently 15 points clear in the title race so anything less than a win here would be disastrous for the current champions. City have only dropped points at home on four occasions this season.

Chelsea are under pressure to maintain third place and they will be after City because finishing second means no Champions League play-off matches before next year. Chelsea have the second best attack away from home in the division and they are going after their eighth away win.

What is your prediction?
