Antonio Conte Pep Guardiola

Chelsea visit Manchester City at the Etihad this afternoon needing three points to keep our hopes of Champions League qualification alive.

The Premier League title is gone, that’s City’s to lose, but we cannot afford to finish outside of the top four if we want to be able to attract the best players next season.

Chelsea will likely be unable to attract top players without the promise of Champions League football.

We may find ourselves in a situation where we have a new manager who will be looking for reinforcements in order to start building his project. If we cannot offer any new arrivals Champions League football, they may hesitate over putting pen-to-paper.

We can send a statement to Liverpool, Manchester United and Tottenham with a performance and a positive result today.

Here’s how we lineup in full.
