Ahead of a blockbuster Premier League clash at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea and Manchester City have confirmed their respective line-ups.

Thomas Tuchel has introduced four changes from the side that thrashed Tottenham 3-0 last weekend.

Edouard Mendy, Reece James, N’Golo Kante, and Timo Werner have all made the line-up. Werner replaces an injured Mason Mount. While Kai Havertz, Thiago Silva, and Kepa drop to the bench.

After being rested midweek, Andreas Christensen is back in central defense alongside Cesar Azpilicueta and Antonio Rudiger. Unsurprisingly, Romelu Lukaku starts in a two-man attack alongside Werner.

Kevin De Bruyne and Phil Foden, meanwhile, are the only Manchester City players to keep their starting places from the 6-1 win over Wycombe on Tuesday.

Citizens boss Pep Guardiola has recalled nine players into his line-up in Ederson, Kyle Walker, Ruben Dias, Aymeric Laporte, Joao Cancelo, Rodrigo, Bernardo Silva, Jack Grealish and Gabriel Jesus.

The clash in west London begins at 13:30 (CEST) on Saturday afternoon.
