Manchester City vs Chelsea live score, updates, highlights & lineups from the Carabao Cup

By | November 9, 2022

ETIHAD STADIUM, MANCHESTER — Manchester City take on Chelsea in the standout tie of the Carabao Cup third round on Wednesday.

Pep Guardiola’s reigning Premier League champions won four editions of this competition in a row until a penalty shoot-out defeat at West Ham ended their streak last season.

One of their final triumphs in that run came on penalties at Chelsea’s expense in 2019 and the taker of the winning spot kick that day, Raheem Sterling, will be hoping a return to the Etihad Stadium prompts an upturn in form after a mixed start to life in west London.

Both Guardiola and Graham Potter are likely to shuffle their packs ahead of this weekend’s final pre-World Cup round of Premier League fixtures, meaning an open and entertaining contest could be in store.

The Sporting News is following the match live and providing live score updates and commentary.

Man City vs. Chelsea live updates, highlights from the Carabao Cup

2 hours from kickoff: Hello and welcome to The Sporting News’ live coverage of the Carabao Cup third-round clash between Manchester City and Chelsea.

Man City vs Chelsea lineups

Guardiola’s line-up plan might have been thrown into flux by Saturday’s battling 2-1 win over Fulham, where City played for 65 minutes with 10 men to prevail despite Joao Cancelo being sent off. Because this is also a domestic competition, the Portugal full-back will be unavailable as he serves a one-match ban.

Erling Haaland came off the bench to net a stoppage-time winner from the penalty spot — his 23rd goal of the season —but the Norway striker faces another late fitness test as he continues to nurse the effects of a foot injury. England midfielder Kalvin Phillips is in line for some valuable pre-World Cup minutes from the bench after returning to training from shoulder surgery.

Manchester City predicted lineup (4-2-3-1): Ortega (GK) — Lewis, Dias, Laporte, Gomez — Rodri, Silva — Foden, Alvarez, Grealish — Haaland.

Graham Potter will likely shuffle his pack again for Chelsea, with the likes of Conor Gallagher and Armando Broja in contention. Raheem Sterling could start against his former club.

Chelsea predicted lineup (4-3-3): Mendy (GK) — Azpilicueta, Chalobah, Koulibaly, Cucurella — Loftus-Cheek, Gallagher, Zakaria — Pulisic, Broja, Sterling.
