Manchester City could be without as many as four first-team players for today’s clash with Chelsea, if Physio Room are to be believed.

We’re going to need all the help that we can get. Man City under the stewardship of Pep Guardiola are one of the strongest and most entertaining teams the Premier League has ever seen.

Their squad depth is utterly ridiculous, that’s what you get when you hand your manager a blank cheque. However, they will be undeniably weaker if these four miss out today.

As per Physio Room, both players have a chance of making the game. It’s claimed that Kyle Walker faces a late fitness test before City decide whether he is fit to feature, whereas Raheem Sterling is a ‘slight doubt’ with a hamstring injury.

Combined transfer fees according to the BBC and Sky Sports: £99M

Fernandinho and Benjamin Mendy

Combined transfer fees according to the BBC and Guardian: £82M.
