Assume Mbappe is injured as opposed to being dropped? I mean he was terrible in the first game and didn't really contribute anything in attack or defense. But that would be some call to drop him.

Kind of surprised that City dropped Rodri for this one. He was definitely a bit sloppy in possession in PSG, but European refs will be more wily to Fernandinho's tactics.

No surprise to see Zinchenko in.

Will be interesting to see how PSG approach this. They can try and blitz City but it's unlikely Pep will hold his fullbacks back the way he did in the first half of the first leg

Only one thing you have to do Ander!
Make sure Fernandinho gets red card, as soon as possible.

Herrera actually a better fit than Gueye. Should allow Verratti to do his thing, if he's got it in him to do it against the very best.
Frankly, almost every big European game involving PSG that I've watched, Verratti has been injured or sent off.

I see the talent at times but think he's remarkably overrated and unreliable

Who would most Chelsea fans rather have in the final?
I think the more compelling story is Tuchel vs his old team. Man City would be more familiar. Need to be completely focused on RM.

I like the look of that attack with Icardi leading the line for PSG. It’s better balanced with Neymar off the left and Di Maria on the right.

It could prove a blessing in disguise that Mbappe isn’t fit enough to start and then unleash him against a tired City defence for the final thirty minutes.

Predicting PSG will go out with the mindset that they're already out and will fall to a comfortable City win on the night

What's going on with the pitch, it's snow or hail? They're clearing the lines, it's May ffs.
