Manchester City Have Identified January Replacement For Benjamin Mendy

Fabian Delph has- to the surprise- proved an able deputy for Benjamin Mendy

"We thought next summer about looking for another left-back - another replacement - but we will see what we do".

However, Manchester City will go into the encounter with a worrying injury in tow, as Benjamin Mendy travelled to Barcelona earlier this week to have his knee treated upon after being injured in an otherwise spectacular 5-0 win against Crystal Palace last Saturday.

Mendy, who has made an impressive start to his career at City following his move from Monaco, for a reported £52 million, missed Tuesday's 2-0 win over Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League.

The 23-year-old will now travel to Barcelona for a full assessment with knee specialist Dr Ramon Cugat, but manager Pep Guardiola concedes the situation does not look promising.

Delph, who has filled in for Mendy at left-back in recent weeks, said he and his team-mates were keen to repay the gesture.

"I know how hard these situations are".

"It is really frustrating for him, first as a person, but like what happened with Ilkay Gundogan past year, I am sad for him", manager Pep Guardiola said following his team's Champions League victory over Shakhtar Donetsk on Tuesday.

A club statement said: "Everyone at the club wishes him a speedy recovery".

"We will see in January", the City boss added.

Sergio Aguero also misses the game at Stamford Bridge after he was hurt in a auto crash on Thursday night. "He didn't make one training session with us since a month ago".

Meanwhile, Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte said the hamstring injury sustained by striker Alvaro Morata in the first half was "not serious", although he is expected to miss worldwide duty with Spain.
