Chelsea vs Manchester City LIVE – Latest score, what time does it start, TV channel, team news and odds

Maurizio Sarri will have his work cut out in his attempts to restart Chelsea’s season when they welcome unbeaten Manchester City in the late kick-off.

Chelsea looked to have bounced back from their first defeat of the season against Tottenham with victory over Fulham last weekend, but a second loss quickly followed in the Midlands at Wolves in midweek.

Pep Guardiola’s side however have dropped just two points all season and have won their last seven top-flight games, and so will be hoping to inflict another defeat on the hosts.

Player to watch

Riyad Mahrez: The Algerian was phenomenal in midweek and drove Pep Guardiola’s side to victory against Watford. He expertly picked out the run of Leroy Sane for City’s first before scoring the decisive goal himself. Guardiola has rotated his team frequently this season, but ahead of the Christmas period Mahrez will be integral as both a starter or as a substitute.
