Chelsea given a huge boost against Man City as two key Man City defender is ruled out.
It is safe to say that things are working in the favor of Chelsea at least for now as Man City keep recording injuries from all corners and just recently two key defender joined the injury list giving Chelsea a huge winning boost.
The Man City manager had some important team news for us to digest while we wait for Potter’s platitudes.
Guardiola declared his top central defender Ruben Dias as out, while his partner Aymeric Laporte is a doubt, with the coach claiming he would have to see how things go in the training session today.

Even if both are out we still don’t fancy Chelsea’s chances – but we would at least have a chance that way. We don’t really have the strikers to trouble the pair if they’re both playing and in form, but at least if there is some disruption to the City back line it gives us a flicker of hope that we might actually score.
