PLAYERS TO WATCH
Foden: if Pep would play the Stockport lad, then Chelsea should be careful since the 20-year-old has high agility and sense for goal. Foden had scored in both his last two matches. If Pep decide to play him on the wings or in midfield, he can cause serious trouble. View pictures in App save up to 80% data.
Kelvin DE Bruyne: The Belgian is currently the best midfielder in the Premier League. His Long-shot ability and chances creation would be a serious trouble for Chelsea. The former Chelsea player is well used to punishing his former team. Kovacic and Kante can terrorize the Belgian but a little mistake would be De Bruyne’s advantage. Care must be taken!
