What happened last time?

Man City claimed the first piece of silverware last season when Sergio Aguero picked off Chelsea in Maurizio Sarri’s first game in English football. The Argentine netted a goal either side of the interval in what was largely a damp squib of a contest.

Who’re the favourites this time?

The bookies make Pep’s side marginal favourites going into this one. If the game is tied at full time it will be decided by penalty shoot-out with no extra time.
