Antonio Conte Places Faith In Christensen In Andreas Christensen

Reuters

Both City and Chelsea, three points behind both Guardiola's men and second-placed Manchester United, go into today's game on the back of midweek Champions League victories over Shakhtar Donetsk and Atletico Madrid respectively.

The Spaniard juxtaposed Jose Mourinho's side with Premier League champions Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur, describing them as teams that 'like to play football' while seemingly criticising United's approach. His season is starting and it started with a big game, against Atletico Madrid, and he has to show he deserves to stay at the top with the best. Atleti and Man City are completely different teams and this will provide another interesting tactical battle for Conte.

The Italian said Hazard was different to attackers such as Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi, who were more relentless in their pursuit of goals.

Lineups will be posted when announced. There might even be extra motivation for City's Argentinian striker Sergio Aguero to find the net on Saturday, as he is one goal away from equalling Eric Brook's all-time club record of 177 goals - which has stood for 78 years.

Nevertheless, one potential threat for Hazard and co. will prove a resurgent Raheem Sterling who has entered the 2017-18 campaign in determined fashion. The West London club are currently third in the league with 13 points, and a win on Saturday will take them on level with City.

Guardiola must also plan for life without £52m summer signing Benjamin Mendy, who was in Barcelona on Friday to undergo surgery on a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, possibly ending his debut season. All 10 of our writers picked United to win, and only two think Palace will score their first goal of the season.

"I'm sure the top six would like that because they'll get a bigger slice of the pie but there are 14 other teams who want to be competitive", said Clement.

Ahead of the next round of bidding in 2019, Premier League clubs are divided over how the lucrative overseas money deal should be split.

Welcome to the new Big Match Preview feature. "The opposition is not the problem". Stamford Bridge will host a game that Chelsea won 2-1 in its corresponding fixture in the previous season.

Each of the two sides relies on assists to come from Spanish players. In addition, star Eden Hazard has not only returned from injury, but he has hit the ground running. "We have to pay attention tomorrow, as it won't be easy against City". Further forward could see some changes to inject fresh energy; Cesc Fabregas added an extra body to the midfield, but we could well see a change here with the addition of Willian.
