Chelsea players who could get a chance to impress against Manchester city on Thursday at home



Chelsea football club players returned to full training session this afternoon ahead of their second game of the new year in the Barclay premier league, their opponent is the defending champions Manchester city and the venue will be stamford bridge.

This game is arguably their toughest game of the season so far and with pressure mounting on the squad and coach after their lucklustre performance against 17th placed Nottingham Forest on the first of January 2022.

Graham Potter team selections have been questioned lately with his attacking players failing to live up to expectations, he will be wise enough to make couple of changes especially in midfield and attack against a dominant and ruthless Manchester city team.

So below we picked out some players who could get a chance to play on Thursday.

Mateo Kovacic. Chelsea midfielder was flat against Nottingham Forest, no much creativity and dribbles from the middle of the park, the passing was just horizontals, Mateo Kovacic will be slotted straight back at the expense of jorginho Frello or Denis Zakaria on Thursday.

Hakim Ziyech. Chelsea only chance in the second half only arrived when Hakim Ziyech came into the pitch, he enjoyed a wonderful world cup and should come in for the ineffective Mason Mount.

Omari Hutchinson. Chelsea attackers could not beat Nottingham Forest defenders on vs one encounters, Christian Pulisic, Kai Havertz and Raheem Sterling all struggled, Manchester city are a big time but introducing the talented Omari Hutchinson could give the team a lift and home supporters could love to see that.

He has trained for more than a month with the first team players and Graham potter must now show faith and take the risk.

Conor Gallagher. Chelsea certainly will need energy and closing down to do in midfield, Conor Gallagher looks fresh and should be starting this game, he impressed against city while on loan with Crystal palace last season.
