Chelsea vs Man City: Match Preview, Team News, Date & Kickoff Time

Despite a resounding derby win against Tottenham in their last outing, Chelsea acknowledges the need for improvement as they prepare to take on Manchester City this Sunday. The Blues secured a 4-1 victory in a tumultuous all-London clash, ending Tottenham's unbeaten run. However, their performance faced criticism as they encountered nine men for a significant part of the game, only sealing the win with Nicolas Jackson's injury-time hat-trick.

With a keen eye on Chelsea's recent struggles, Manchester City aims for a seventh consecutive win over the London side across all competitions. City enters the clash following a dominant 6-0 victory against Bournemouth and securing a place in the Champions League knockout stages with two games to spare.

The highly anticipated Chelsea vs. Man City showdown is scheduled for a 4:30 pm GMT kick-off on Sunday, November 12, 2023, at Stamford Bridge in West London.

While grappling with one of the longest injury lists in the league, Chelsea hopes to have Armando Broja available for the weekend. Nicolas Jackson, after his standout performance against Spurs, is likely to retain his place. Levi Colwill's halftime withdrawal against Tottenham was a tactical decision, and Mykhailo Mudryk is fit again, providing flexibility in Mauricio Pochettino's forward line.

However, Chelsea remains without the services of Ben Chilwell, Romeo Lavia, Trevoh Chalobah, and Carney Chukwuemeka, with Christopher Nkunku not expected to make an immediate return.

Manchester City faces defensive challenges with injuries to John Stones and a late withdrawal of Manuel Akanji due to a back issue. Both are unlikely to be fit for the weekend clash. On a positive note, Erling Haaland has recovered from his ankle knock and showcased his form with two goals in the midweek fixture that confirmed City's place in the Champions League knockout stages. Sergio Gomez and Kevin De Bruyne continue to be sidelined for City.
