Chelsea last week it was unable defeat at home to Swansea. The Londoners have won just one draw and showed enough defensive weaknesses. However, the band prepared for Jose Mourinho played more than 40 minutes a man down, put two were charged short.

Courtois is suspended after being eliminated in the duel with the “swans” and his place in goal will be taken by Asmir Begovic. Oscar suffered a slight injury in training and is uncertain, but Jose Mourinho has no further problems effectively.
Chelsea has a poor start to the season. Londoners lost the Supercup of England, and in the first round have failed to impose inferior opponents before a value terms. The game does not arise as Jose Mourinho wants and defense seems much more fragile compared to the previous season. City instead started with a convincing victory and usually play great at home. Manuel Pellegrini certainly knows how to take advantage of the weak form of the guests, while today “citizens” have the perfect opportunity to defeat Chelsea.
