A plethora of players are yet to return or be cleared for action following their World Cup involvement for both sides, so here is a combined XI for those set to be involved at Wembley on Sunday afternoon.

"We were close but, in the end, Jorginho chose to stay with (former Napoli boss) Maurizio", Guardiola said.

The City manager also revealed how much he was looking forward to locking horns with Sarri, who replaced Conte last month.

"I think we need something".

As always, feel free to post to your own Manchester City and/or Chelsea starting XI predictions, as well as your score predictions, in the comments section below.

And Lescott, who works with City's loan players, says Guardiola's ability to get the most out of players is the difference between the two managers.

Under Sarri, Chelsea now look to be a more attacking team in a similar style to the one Guardiola currently uses at City. "I think he's the best coach in the world, or one of the best for sure", Sarri added. Antonio was, Maurizio will be too.

Playing seemingly pointless friendlies in China and the States are never ideal preparation for a hectic Premier League campaign and they're an even bigger inconvenience in a World Cup year when a large proportion of the squad have played in the maximum number of World Cup matches.

For Chelsea, Cesc Fabregas is a doubt with a minor knee injury.

"But deals are deals, agents are agents and players are players, so I don't know what is going to happen". Both sides have four victories apiece in the fixture. We started two and a half weeks ago.

"I want to win, because it's very important to have a trophy immediately".

The Algerian winger injured his ankle during City's pre-season clash with Bayern Munich last week and the fact that he crumpled in a heap had many fans fearing the worst.

There were plenty of rumors that Chelsea would not be able to keep hold of their key players at Stamford Bridge with the likes of Willian and Thibaut Courtois pushing for a move to Barcelona and Real Madrid respectively.
