Captain Vincent Kompany is currently recovering from his injury but may not yet make his comeback soon. Micah Richards may be close to recuperation but remains a doubt against Chelsea. Edin Dzeko and Sergio Aguero stand as the sideÔÇÖs main attackers.
Chelsea may not be in contention for the Premier League title anymore, but a win against Manchester City might see their gap against the champions slim down to just one point in the table. Inconsistent matches and managerial issues have caused them to concede in the title race.
