Team news, stats and prediction ahead of Manchester City vs Chelsea in the Premier League on Saturday (kick-off 5.30pm).
Manchester City are without defender John Stones as they bid to clinch the Premier League title against fellow Champions League finalists Chelsea on Saturday.
The England international completes his three-match domestic suspension for his sending off in the victory against Aston Villa last month.
City have no new fitness concerns following their exertions against Paris St Germain in midweek and centre-back Eric Garcia could be available again after illness.
Mateo Kovacic will miss out for Chelsea as he continues to battle past hamstring trouble.
The Croatia midfielder will also be a doubt for the Blues’ Premier League clash with Arsenal at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.
Boss Thomas Tuchel still hopes to have the former Real Madrid man fit in time for the FA Cup final against Leicester, however.
A United draw would have effectively sealed the title for the blue half of Manchester, because of City’s vastly superior goal difference, but fan protests at Old Trafford saw the game called off for safety and security reasons.
But City can now secure the title in front of the Sky Sports cameras if they can see off Tuchel’s side in a meeting between the two Champions League finalists.
If they slip up – and Manchester United win on Sunday May 9 away to Aston Villa – the game at Newcastle on May 12 could be decisive.
