How both the Blues and City will start against each other in the league.
It’s perhaps the biggest tie of the Premier League weekend as Chelsea host 2012 champions Manchester City at Stamford Bridge.
For the home side the big news is that Ashley Cole is back in the team after a rib injury, whilst Fernando Torres keeps the Spaniard’s place up-front after scoring twice against Schalke 04 in the Champions League mid-week.
Gary Cahill is preferred ahead of David Luiz once again by manager Jose Mourinho, whilst Andre Schurrle gets a rare start in attacking midfield alongside the in-form Eden Hazard and Oscar.

City captain Vincent Kompany remains sidelined through injury, but there is a start for Martin Demichelis as the centre-back prepares to make the Argentine’s debut for the club.
The 32-year-old joined the Citizens from Atletico Madrid in the summer, but has not played a match since due to knee problems.
Top-scorer Sergio Aguero acts as a lone striker ahead of an in-form attacking midfield trio of Samir Nasri, David Silva and Yaya Toure.
