CHE Vs MCI Fantasy Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Manchester City get ready to take on Chelsea in the midst of a Coronavirus outbreak.
One of the most affected clubs at the moment with COVID, Manchester City make a foray into today’s affair looking to revert their attention to matters on the pitch. Despite being run to the ground by the disease with five players being under the weather, the club is still serenaded with the moniker of outright favourites for this fixture.
On a two match winning spree prior to the curtailment of their bygone showdown against Everton, City are steadily settling into their groove this season. While the club still has a long and tedious road to traverse before it can really throw its cap into contention for a shot at the title, the team is doing more than enough to pull off results in its favour.
And with Chelsea shambolically losing their way with the club winning just one of its last three matches, City should be able to record a third successive win today.
CHE Vs MCI Fantasy Probable Winner
COVID has rocked City’s ship but Chelsea’s stuttering form should allow City to scram their way to a one goal win today.

Top Goal Scorer
- Tammy: 6 Goals
- Sterling: 4 Goals, 3 Assists
We begin today’s set of picks with the selection of Edouard Mendy from Chelsea. The goal-keeper had an uncertain period in December but he’s been quick to pull his socks up and once again take control of his side’s sticks.
Joining him is Ben Chilwell who snared an assist the last time around. Elsewhere, we have an entire triad be inducted in our team from the visiting team.
Where the goals have vanished up in smoke for Chelsea, City on the other have asked teams to take a walk with their stringent brand of defending. The club can easily clobber Chelsea’s attack today to see us indulge in the services of Ruben Dias, Joao Cancelo and John Stones.
Scripting two goals and seven assists for City, Kevin de Bruyne as ever has left us besotted with his articulate brand of football. He finds company in the services of Rodrigo Hernandez who has emerged as the focal point of his side’s defence with his ability to close the ball.
Chelsea on the other hand will be represented by a trio. We begin with Christian Pulisic who was in electric touch the last time around.
Joining up is Mason Mount, a player whose unnerving work ethic has seen him make his presence felt all around the park. Completing the trio from the club is the ever reliable and dependable N’Golo Kante.
City’s leading scorer with the four goals and three assists, Raheem Sterling is the last of our picks for the outing.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Kevin’s 9 goal contributions make him our captain while Cancelo is the vice-captain.
Mendy, Ben, Cancelo, Dias, Stones, Kevin, Mount, Kante, Rodrigo, Pulisic, Raheem
