Chelsea vs. Manchester City: Lineups and open discussion

New, comments

These two teams will likely occupy the top two spots in the Premier League at the end of the season, and will meet at Stamford Bridge today.

Today's game isn't going to change the order at the top of the Premier League table, but a six-pointer between the two teams most fans would call title favorites is always a massive game. Chelsea have had some tough league games already, traveling to Old Trafford, Goodison Park, and White Hart Lane. They've taken only two points from those fixtures, and will hope for more in their first big test at home,

The managers have submitted their lineup cards already, and here are the squads that they've chosen:

Chelsea XI: Petr Cech, Branislav Ivanovic, John Terry, Gary Cahill, Ashley Cole, Ramires, Frank Lampard, Andre Schurrle, Oscar, Eden Hazard, Fernando Torres

Chelsea Bench: Mark Schwarzer, Cesar Azpilicueta, David Luiz, John Obi Mikel, Juan Mata, Willian, Samuel Eto'o

Manchester City XI: Joe Hart, Pablo Zabaleta, Martin Demichelis, Matija Nastasic, Gael Clichy, Javi Garcia, Fernandinho, Samir Nasri, Yaya Toure, David Silva, Sergio Aguero

Manchester City Bench: Micah Richards, James Milner, Alvero Negredo, Edin Dzeko, Aleksander Kolarov, Jesus Navas, Costel Pantilimon

As always, keep things civil and please don't link or direct to any illegal streams. Enjoy the game, and let's go Blues!
