Pep is most likely going to maintain his favorite formation 4-3-3 with Ederson still maintaining his shot stopping role. At the back four he will have to stick with Mandy, Laporte, Fernandihno and Walker.

At the midfield he'll have to use Gundogan as the defensive midfielder while Silva and De Bruyne will be deployed as the central midfielder. On the wings Raheem Sterling on the left and Mahrez on the right wing. Gabriel Jesus will be his central striker.

Lampard on the other side will come with a defensive mind and he'll have to play his cards right.

If his calculations are to play a more defensive game, he'll have to go for 3-4-2-1 or the 3-5-2 formation which at some point he has used it.

It will be more interesting on how Lampard will select his starting line up. The only mistake he can make is to sideline pulisic who is leading with the amount of assists and with 9 nine goals.

Chelsea will be without Tomori (muscle problem)

Manchester City will be without ;

Garcia, Foden and Aguero
