Both sides come into the tie off the back of excellent but exhausting results in the Champions League in midweek, with the Blues defeating Porto on aggregate and City triumphing over Borussia Dortmund to secure their places in the last four. For City, there remains the added incentive of an unprecedented quadruple, with the club on the verge of clinching the Premier League title and a Carabao Cup final against Tottenham still to come later this month. Pep Guardiola’s side did come unstuck against Leeds last weekend, though, and that will bring Chelsea hope as Thomas Tuchel attempts to win his first piece of silverware since taking charge.
The Blues came unstuck when they last faced City in January, crumbling to a 3-1 defeat at Stamford Bridge, but they continue to show signs of improvement under their new coach. They will have to manage without Mateo Kovacic, though, who remains absent due to injury, although N’Golo Kante’s successful return will provide an almighty boost in the centre of midfield.
