Chelsea vs Man City live stream: How to watch Premier League match online and on TV | Football | Sport
Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has stuck largely to a trusted team this season and was rewarded with an 18-match unbeaten start to the campaign, after the Community Shield defeat to Manchester City in his first game in charge.
But two losses in the last three league games, to Tottenham and Wolves, mean Chelsea sit fourth, 10 points adrift of leaders City after 15 games.

Sarri has already criticised his players – even World Cup-winning midfielder N’Golo Kante has not been immune – as he tries to transform the Blues’ playing style.
“To change the style of football, system, players… that (changing every match) is not the right solution, I think,” Sarri said.
While counterpart Pep Guardiola spent £200million after his first season in charge, Sarri insists recruiting talent is not the answer.
He added: “You cannot think that you can buy 11 new players without problems. If you do, the problems will be the same.
“You have to create a new mentality and a new style of playing. We need to improve.
“We need to arrive at 95 per cent of our potential. And then we can get the last five per cent with a new player. With a new player, not 11 new players.”
