Ch-ch-ch-changes!  Your eyes are not deceiving you, it's Cesc Fàbregas in the starting lineup!  No Matić at all in the matchday squad, which probably means an injury or some sort?  That's what Conte may have been hinting at yesterday...

It would appear that City are in an ultra-attacking look (3-2-4-1).
