News on the Chelsea accident – who is out?

Surprisingly at this stage of the season, Chelsea suffered no first-team injuries.

Higuain has not played much football in 2019 yet and will be managed with care, but the city is still expected to start.

The forgotten man Marko van Ginkel remains unavailable with an ACL injury, but does not seem to have a future at the club anyway.

Sarri would like to record a victory against the City in an attempt to build momentum, but will not want to lose any key player for injuries in view of a demanding period.

Maurizio Sarri gets the lead on Man City against Chelsea

After the game in Huddersfield, Sarri said: "I know it very well when [Higuain] he arrived he was not at the top.

"Now he's improving, and I'm really very happy because, apart from the goals, he's very good at playing near Hazard.

"They are suitable for playing near one another in the field, and it was very useful for us.

Higuain is likely to hold his place in the initial XI with Olivier Giroud who has resigned to the bench.
