Chelsea welcome Manchester City to Stamford Bridge for today’s early Premier League kick-off.
The Blues are currently leading the standings alongside Liverpool, and they can go six points clear of the Cityzens with a victory.
Mateo Kovacic could be the odd-man out as Kante is set to partner Jorginho. The duo starred in the Champions League final triumph in May.
There will be an enforced change in the attack with Mason Mount ruled out with a minor knock sustained in the midweek League Cup tie.
Predicted Chelsea lineup (3-4-1-2): Mendy; Christensen, Silva, Rudiger; James, Jorginho, Kante, Alonso; Havertz; Werner, Lukaku.
