Chelsea will be without David Luiz, who still serves his three-game domestic ban following the red card he got in the finish of the match against Arsenal. That might be a problem against mighty Manchester City attack, but Rudiger covered his place successfully against Stoke and Nottingham Forest. After the shock loss against Burnley in the first round match, Chelsea didn't lose a single game, but it will be difficult to defend from the team which scored at least five goals in their last three Premier League games.

Sergio Aguero had a car accident this week, and he got away with only a broken rib. However, he will be out of action for two months, and that might affect Manchester City momentum. He scored six goals so far, and he is a top goalscorer in the league currently, along with Lukaku and Morata. However, Manchester City has other in-form attackers such as Jesus who scored four and Sterling who scored five goals so far.
