The team news is in for Manchester City’s clash against Chelsea where Pep Guardiola’s side will be lifting the Premier League trophy later on.
Arsenal’s loss to Nottingham Forest confirmed City’s status as the 2022/23 Premier League champions and as a result, Guardiola makes nine changes from the team that started against Real Madrid, with Kyle Walker and Manuel Akanji the only survivors.

Despite the changes, it remains a ridiculously strong City side that Pep has put out, and Chelsea will be hoping that the Sky Blues are still thinking about their title-winning celebrations if they want to stand any chance of winning against a team who haven’t lost a game since February 5th.
Kick-off from the Etihad Stadium comes at 16:00 BST.
