Arguably the biggest match of the week will be played at the Stamford Bridge when Pep Guardiola will take his Manchester City side to the Stamford Bridge just days after travelling to the Emirates.

The Citizens are fresh from a stalemate against Arsene Wenger’s side, a result that keeps them in the fourth place but a win in this game against Chelsea can not only lift them up but will also help give Spurs an outside chance of catching the Blues late in the season.

Chelsea are currently just seven points ahead of the Spurs in the second place and were put to the sword by a gritty Crystal Palace side who managed to take all three points from their game against the League leaders.

Antonio Conte will know that his side cannot afford any more slip-ups and that they will have to be at their best to take anything from this game against Manchester City.

City are out of the UCL and the Premier League is their only chance of European qualification this season. So Guardiola will go all in for a victory in this game and will hope that his side can put in a decent performance on the night.

Chelsea, on the other hand, will have to improve considerably to take a point or more from this top of the table clash in London.

Here is the team news and predicted lineup that Antonio Conte might field for this tie:

Date: Wednesday, 5th April

Venue: Stamford Bridge, London

KO: 8:00 pm (12:30 am IST on Wednesday)

Team News:

Chelsea do not have too many injuries to worry about as winger Victor Moses (ankle) remains the only player who will not play a role in this game. Conte is expected to go with a similar lineup like against the Eagles at the weekend.

Expected lineup (3-4-3):

Thibaut Courtois; Cesar Azpilicueta, David Luiz, Gary Cahill; Pedro, Nemanja Matic, N Golo Kante, Marcos Alonso; Willian, Eden Hazard, Diego Costa

This is how they would line up:
