With David Silva, Danilo, Benjamin Mendy and Claudio Bravo sidelined, the Blues are facing a difficult period with a packed festive schedule.

On a positive note: Sergio Aguero, Kevin De Bruyne and John Stones were all named in Pep’s squad during Saturday’s clash with Everton, with KDB making a second half appearance from the bench.


For the Foxes, Daniel Amartey is out after suffering a broken ankle, while Matty James is also unlikely to feature.
