Chelsea face Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium aiming to halt the very best attack in the Premier League, with their own defence having conceded the very least goals in the English top flight.

The Blues were responsible for one of Manchester City’s four league defeats so far, with Fernando Torres having sealed victory for the west Londoners with a late strike after Joe Hart’s error.

Jose Mourinho will hope for more of the same at Eastlands this evening, and a number of injuries to the Manchester City side will not help their cause.

Manuel Pellegrini is unable to call upon James Milner, Javi Garcia, Samir Nasri or Sergio Aguero, while Chelsea are only missing Marco Van Ginkel and Fernando Torres.

Samuel Eto’o's form in important matches for Chelsea will make Torres’ absence rather less of an issue, while the January signing of Nemanja Matic for the Blues alleviates the loss of Van Ginkel.

However, Manchester City have an extraordinary record at home, having won all eleven Premier League matches at the Etihad Stadium this term, and Chelsea will face a huge battle to buck that trend.
