Manchester City and Chelsea will meet in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday at Wembley, just two weeks after Pep Guardiola’s side demolished the Londoners 6-0 at the Etihad.
City are defending champions of the Carabao Cup and will be eager to haunt the Londoners once again, with star striker Sergio Aguero having scored a hat-trick during their most recent meeting in Manchester.
Maurizio Sarri’s future at Stamford Bridge has been thrown in jeopardy ever since the 6-0 Premier League thumping but revenge against Man City in the final and lifting silverware could, for the time being, secure his job.
Pedro and Davide Zappacosta are also doubts for the final, while Callum Hudson-Odoi could be handed an opportunity to start up front after his glittering form against Malmo in the Europa League.
Despite being the recipient of boos by Chelsea fans, Jorginho is expected to start in midfield with Eden Hazard and Gonzalo Higuain leading the line.
Potential Chelsea XI: Caballero; Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Luiz, Alonso; Kante, Jorginho, Barkley; Willian, Higuain, Hazard.
