  • Willian Man Utd transfer

Manchester City and Chelsea will not be at full strength on Sunday but it will still be a huge confidence boost for Maurizio Sarri and his team should they defeat the champions. "We are going to start to think what we have do to this season maintain the level of last season".

The transfer window for Premier League clubs closes just a few days after the game.

Will Man City and Pep continue to dominate, and can Mahrez shine for City?

The manager has confirmed his record £60 million ($78 million) signing is in contention to start the match after he was forced off during last weekend's final match of the United States pre-season tour against Bayern Munich.

Jesus is one of a number of players back in the City reckoning after the World Cup, with Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling the only squad members yet to return to the fold.

This will be the third meeting between Chelsea and Manchester City at Wembley, with City winning the most recent one in April 2013 (2-1 in the FA Cup semi-final).

"First of all, I'm looking forward to playing at Wembley, because it's my first time", Sarri said. I saw three games - he gets it, the team in a short time plays like he wants.

General Motors had slashed its outlook, and shares of Ford and auto parts companies had fallen. Juncker told Trump during a meeting in the Oval Office that the trade talks are important.

"Always Chelsea is a big rival". I think we need something.

Sarri says he is yet to make up his mind about Ruben Loftus-Cheek, who spent last season on loan at Crystal Palace, and the midfielder could push for another loan move overseas if he is not in the Italian's plans.

The Brazil-born Italian had been tipped to become the long-term successor to Fernandinho for the Premier League champions.

"I want players who want to come here. We have very good midfielders, but maybe a midfielder with different characteristics".

Thibaut Courtois is due to return to Chelsea training this weekend after helping Belgium finish third at the World Cup and being voted the best goalkeeper at Russian Federation 2018.

Sarri was less sure about the future of Courtois amid speculation that the goalkeeper wants to leave Chelsea and join Real Madrid.
