British media predicts Chelsea’s starting lineup against Manchester City: Mount and Haverts are on the list, and Chalobah is expected to play

January 4th “London Evening Standard” predicts Chelsea’s starting lineup against Manchester City, Mount
Te and Haverts are on the list.

At 04:00 on January 6, , Chelsea will usher in a match against Manchester City at home.
It is reported that Chelsea will have six first-team players absent from the game.
At present, Cheek has resumed training, but Porter should not let him play against Manchester City.
In addition, Reece James, Chilwell, Kanter, Fofana, Broja and E-Mendy were unable to play.

Reece James is expected to be injured for at least three weeks, and Fofana and E-Mendy will return as soon as next week.
In a friendly match in mid-December last year, Broja suffered a cruciate ligament injury, and he is likely to miss the rest of the season.
In addition, Kanter should return in February this year, he suffered a hamstring injury before.

Midfielder Chuk Umeka, 19, came off the bench against Nottingham Forest in his first game since returning from a hamstring injury.
In addition, D-Fofana, who Chelsea spent £8.6 million to sign, will not directly enter Chelsea’s first team.

The injury situation of these players means that Porter’s options are becoming less and less. Porter can play with a three-man midfielder. They used this method in the Carabao Cup against Manchester City, but the team ultimately failed.
Victory over Manchester City.
In addition, Chalobah is expected to appear in the team’s defense, and their starting lineup should not have changed much from when they played against Nottingham Forest.

The starting lineup is as follows: Kepa, Chalobah, Thiago Silva, Koulibaly, Azpilicueta, Kovacic, Jorginho, Cucurella, Pulissi
Chi, Havertz, Mount
