MC) Jon Obi Mikel
In big away matches, Mourinho sets his teams out not to lose, so we think he’ll drop one of his attacking midfielders to play an extra holding player. We reckon Oscar will miss out, with Mikel playing the anchorman role.
The Brazilian has started every Premier League match this term, and this evening should be no different. He will provide the energy and running in Chelsea’s midfield, and will look to stop Yaya Toure from running the game.
MC) Nemanja Matic
Matic has done well since arriving at Stamford Bridge this January, and we think he’ll get the nod over the ageing Frank Lampard in midfield. Away to City will be a real test of his Premier League mettle.
