Possible formation: 4-3-3

With Zinchenko making just his fourth Premier League start of the campaign, City look certain to go 4-3-3.

Fernandinho will skipper the team and slot into his usual anchor role, with Ilkay Gundogan and De Bruyne completing the midfield trio.

Bernardo and Raheem Sterling will provide width for Sergio Aguero in attack.

Stats and milestones…

Aguero needs two more goals to overtake Tom Johnson and Eric Brook as the Club’s all-time league goal-scorer.

If Kun is selected, it will be his 200th Premier League start for City – he also has 29 appearances from the bench.

Chelsea have beaten City 25 times during the Premier League era – no side has beaten the Blues more.

The Blues are two games away from equalling Tottenham’s 1965 record of scoring at least two goals in 16 consecutive home league games.

City have the Premier League’s best home record, with 12 wins from 13 games.

Chelsea have lost all four games away from home this season against established top six sides.
