Man City vs Chelsea team news

City had nearly all their players ready for the Madrid match, although John Stones was only able to play 10 minutes. Erling Haaland and Kevin De Bruyne left the game early, as Guardiola confirmed afterward. Haaland might not play due to a muscle problem, but Guardiola said De Bruyne is feeling better after a hamstring complaint.

The Blues will have Enzo Fernandez and Axel Disasi back after they missed Monday’s 6-0 win over Everton.

Romeo Lavia, Christopher Nkunku, Robert Sanchez, Reece James, Wesley Fofana, Lesley Ugochukwu, and Levi Colwill are all believed to be out at this stage.
