Match Preview & Team News
Chelsea without injuries Charlie Mosonda, Danny Duckrayt, David Zabakosta, Gary Cahill and Marco Van Ginkel. Kepa Arrizabalaga and Pedro were unexpectedly injured during the FA Cup match against Manchester United, and are unlikely to appear in this match. Finally, it is likely that Ross Barclay, Olivier Giroud and Calum Hudson Oduy, who started the match against Malmö, will replace Giorgnou, Gonzalo Higuaín and Aiden Hazard.
The long-term absence of Manchester City, Benjamin Mendy and Claudio Bravo are still injured and will not appear in this game. Gabriel Jesus and John Stones are recovering from minor injuries and it is doubtful that they will play in this game. In the end, Kevin De Bruin and David Silva appeared in their confrontation with Schalke 04, and could be replaced by Elkay Gondwana and Leroy Sane.
This is the first chance to win silver in the 2018/19 season. Chelsea will face Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final. The game will be played on Sunday at Wembley Stadium.
Two other EPL teams met last week in the Etihad Recycling Bin. Since their last match, Chelsea’s results have been mixed. They were eliminated in the fifth round of the FA Cup by Manchester United. The Londoners are also in sixth place in the Premier League table. But Chelsea beat Malmo F in Sweden in the 32nd round of the UEFA Champions League and advanced in the last 16. If they defeat Ukrainian team Dynamo Kiev, Chelsea will go to the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals. A deep tour of the European league could be an alternative way to qualify for the UEFA Champions League next season.
Meanwhile, Manchester City remains at odds with the four titles this season. He easily beat the second division of Newport in the fifth round of the FA Cup and will face Swansea in the quarterfinals of the competition. He also leads the English Premier League standings, but this could change because Liverpool, who has a postponed game, will face Manchester United on Sunday. Finally, the City took control of the UEFA Champions League in the knockout phase, with Manchoni in the tenth place beating Schalke 2-3. While there will be everything to play in the second stage, City has a slender advantage.
In addition to its international competitions, EPL will now focus on the EFL Cup final. With the first opportunity to win the silver this season, there will be a lot to play in this game. Does Chelsea reflect their outstanding performances in December? Or will Manchester City repeat the road in two weeks !
