Star midfielder Kevin De Bruyne (five goals, one assist) should continue to facilitate the attack. Bernardo Silva (seven goals) and Gabriel Jesus (seven assists) are among many other attacking options for the league's top-scoring team (53 goals). Goalkeeper Ederson leads the league with 11 clean sheets, and City also has the EPL's best defensive record (13 goals conceded).
The expert also knows the Blues will be in desperation mode, and they have plenty of talent to compete with the defending league champs. Romelu Lukaku (five goals) will be trying to atone for some off-field missteps in recent weeks, and Mason Mount (seven goals, five assists) is an elite playmaker. Chelsea also has a sterling defensive record, allowing 16 goals, and backup goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga was stellar in place of Edouard Mendy in a 1-0 win against Tottenham in the League Cup semifinals on Wednesday.
