Manchester City vs Chelsea will meet for the second time in four days, with the Blues looking for a win after their previous Premier League defeat.
Chelsea will look to avenge their Premier League loss to Manchester City when the two teams meet in the FA Cup third round on Sunday at the City of Manchester Stadium.
Graham Potter’s team has struggled for consistency recently, with only one win in their last seven games, putting the former Brighton and Hove Albion manager’s job in jeopardy.
Manchester City and Chelsea will meet for the second time in four days, with the Blues looking for a win after their previous Premier League defeat.
Both Raheem Sterling and Christian Pulisic were forced off the field on Thursday, adding to Potter’s injury nightmare, which he described as “I’ve never experienced anything like it.”
N’Golo Kante, Reece James, Wesley Fofana, Mason Mount, Ben Chilwell, Armando Broja, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, and Edouard Mendy are among those who could be added to the list.
Mount could play against Manchester City in the FA Cup on Sunday if Pulisic’s injury is not too serious.
The Blues manager claimed that judging him on a season marred by an injury crisis and the World Cup was unfair.
“I’m not sitting here as some egomaniac who has all the answers and always gets it right,” he explained. “Of course, that’s not true. However, there are some challenges that we face, as well as some difficult margins in the Premier League.
“We’ve had a massive transition problems with injuries make it difficult to be stable.”
Pep Guardiola, on the other hand, appeared pleased and relieved with his team’s Premier League victory.
“In the second half, we were miles ahead in every department. “It’s a significant achievement for us,” he said.
