CHELSEA 0-0 MAN CITY

18: Kepa Arrizabalaga clearly didn’t watch the Southampton match. Alex McCarthy gifted the opener to Arsenal and the Chelsea stopper nearly did the same. Bernardo Silva nicks it off the dithering goalkeeper but can’t convert it through a crowd of bodies.

15: Chance! Nice interplay from Chelsea there, sparked by a delightful back heel from Olivier Giroud. Willian crosses the ball into the middle but there’s Ilkay Gundogan to clear for a corner. Fernandinho clears to Mason Mount, who skies it.

13: Benjamin Mendy gets to the byline and drills a dangerous ball in towards the near post. Kepa deals with it and the subsequent corner. City not hanging around tonight.

10: “What do you reckon is going on in Liverpool tonight, Macca?” asks the BT Sport commentator. “TV’s in the garden and lots of beer. Nice and cold beer,” responds Steve Steve McManaman, who sounds like he’s dreaming of a tall, frosty one himself.

8: I was going to discuss Pep Guardiola’s decision to start this match without a recognised centre-forward – but they went to the Bernabeu and beat Real Madrid without one earlier this season – so who cares really.

5: It probably won’t surprise you to hear that Manchester City have settled nice and quickly. Kevin De Bruyne is pulling the strings in midfield and releases Ilkay Gundogan to win the first corner of the evening.

It’s not a very good delivery and it fails to beat the first man. Nothing makes my blood boil more.

3: Well from a selfish (and neutral) point-of-view I’d like to see Liverpool HAVE to win the title against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium. Would be more of a spectacle y’know…

How’s it started? Slowly. I’m not going to take a pop just yet because we’ve only had three minutes of action.

CHELSEA 0-0 MAN CITY

1: And we’re underway at Stamford Bridge. Apologies for being ridiculous late to start this coverage – covering a historic occasion like Arsenal winning requires a little bit of time.

Anyway, you know what’s up for grabs tonight. Liverpool will be crowned Premier League champions if Manchester City drop points. More importantly for Chelsea fans – a win restores their five-point advantage over Manchester United in the battle for Champions League qualification.

Evening…

Hello everyone and welcome to our LIVE coverage of Chelsea vs Manchester City from Stamford Bridge.

Quite an unusual evening for Frank Lampard and Pep Guardiola – with most of the attention surrounding the fixture centred on Liverpool.

That is, of course, because Jurgen Klopp’s side could be crowned champions if the visitors fail to collect maximum points.

I’m currently occupied with Arsenal’s trip to Southampton but will be with you as soon as that match finishes.

In the meantime, the team news and line ups will appear here ASAP. Standby.
