Fernandinho out to ruin Chelsea's title stroll


"We have to be cautious going forward because Manchester City are very unsafe on the counterattack", he added.

Chelsea won 3-1 at the Etihad Stadium in December in a match which finished with a touchline melee sparked by Aguero's wild challenge on David Luiz.

Theo Walcott doubled the Gunners' advantage, finishing a slick passing move with a close-range finish 10 minutes later, before Olivier Giroud came off the bench and scored a sublime third to seal his side's second win in seven games.

Victor Moses is a doubt as he battles the injury that ruled him out of worldwide duty with Nigeria and the Palace loss, while Conte says he has "a couple of situations" to check before he finalises his starting XI to face City.

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany will make his first Premier League appearance since November when Pep Guardiola's side take on league leaders Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. Sergio [Aguero] and Fernandinho are nice guys. It was a turning point: certainly in the game but arguably in both clubs' seasons.

The second order will empower the Department of Homeland Security to help deal with trade and customs violations. For example: "Some of our trade deficit comes from the fact that we import a lot of oil".

"We were 1-0 up, created unbelievable chances to go 2-0 or 3-0 and after the reaction what happened with Sergio and Fernandinho is (down to) our frustration because Fernandinho is not one of those guys who is aggressive". I think we are in a really good position. "To hit the post 17 times is a lot". It is not a cause for panic, either: instead, it offers them an opportunity to persuade Guardiola of their merits. Guardiola, who has yet to finish a season as a coach without at least one trophy, said new blood would be brought in for next season but those at the club at the moment could cement their futures with City in the next few weeks. "They also played [against Arsenal]".

With Bacary Sagna expected to miss out again due to a groin strain and Pablo Zabaleta short of fitness, Guardiola may have to decide whether to persist with Jesus Navas at right-back. Defensive reinforcements are likely to be targeted, with two full-backs, a central defender, a goalkeeper and another midfielder potential arrivals.

"It is normal that teams competing in European competitions have stronger squads".

The symbol of Chelsea's collapse last season, Eden Hazard has spearheaded the revival under Antonio Conte.
