Manchester City (MCI) host Chelsea (CHE) in matchweek 22 of the 2021-22 Premier League season at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday, January 15. The game will kick off at 6:00 PM IST.
MCI vs CHE Dream11 Prediction
Manchester City and Chelsea clash in a top-of-the-table clash in the Premier League.
City, on one hand, are outright favourites for the tie given they have gone 11 league games unbeaten and command a 10-point lead over Chelsea in the standings. However, the Cityzens will be on guard against a Blues team that has the appetite to cause upsets.
Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea travel to the Etihad Stadium fresh from qualifying for the Carabao Cup final, and they will be eager to keep the momentum going against a rampant Manchester City.
Even though the Blues failed to register a single shot on target in the reverse fixture in September, they will play City with the aim of ending the defending champions’ 11-game unbeaten streak.
MCI vs CHE Dream11 team tips for Premier League 2021-22
Top tip: Best forward
Raheem Sterling will fancy adding to his tally of three goals in 16 meetings with Chelsea. The 27-year-old has 590 fantasy points to his name, on the back of seven goals and an assist in 17 Premier League matches this term. At 9.5 credits, the England attacker is a worthy option to consider.
Top tip: Best midfielder
Mason Mount will shoulder the responsibility of creating attacking opportunities from Chelsea’s midfield engine room. The Englishman is the Blues’ top scorer so far - seven goals and five assists - in the Premier League and is capable of outmanoeuvring his way past the City defence.
Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
Manchester City’s Joao Cancelo is one of the top-performing defenders in the league this season and starts his first home game of 2022 with a whopping 1,075 fantasy points. The Portuguese wing-back has contributed one goal and four assists in the league so far and he’s one player fantasy enthusiasts must not miss out on.
When it comes to goalkeepers, Ederson is the first-choice pick. The Man City custodian has kept 11 clean sheets in the league this term but will be tested heavily by the likes of Romelu Lukaku and Mason Mount. The Brazilian shot-stopper enters the MCI vs CHE fixture with 536 fantasy points to his name.
MCI vs CHE probable playing XI
MCI playing XI (probable): Ederson (goalkeeper); Kyle Walker, Ruben Dias, Aymeric Laporte, Joao Cancelo; Ilkay Gundogan (captain), Rodri, Kevin De Bruyne (captain); Bernardo Silva, Gabriel Jesus, Raheem Sterling
CHE playing XI (probable): Kepa Arrizabalaga; Andreas Christensen, Thiago Silva, Antonio Rudiger; Cesar Azpilicueta (captain), Jorginho, Mateo Kovacic, Marcos Alonso; Mason Mount, Kai Havertz; Romelu Lukaku
