Maurizio Sarri will be hoping to get his career in Stamford Bridge off to a winning start as Chelsea face Manchester City at Wembley stadium later today.

New signing Jorginho starts for Chelsea after a summer-switch from Napoli, while Callum Hudson-Odoi keeps his place on the left wing after impressing in pre-season.

Eden Hazard, Thibaut Courtois, Michy Batshuayi, Olivier Giroud and N’Golo Kante are absent after their World Cup exploits this summer.

Here are the lineups for both teams:

CHELSEA: Caballero; Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Luiz, Alonso; Fabregas, Jorginho, Barkley; Pedro, Morata, Hudson-Odoi

Subs: Bulka, Christensen, Zappacosta, Drinkwater, Moses, Willian, Abraham

MANCHESTER CITY: Bravo; Walker, Stones, Laporte, Mendy; Fernandinho, Foden, Mahrez, B. Silva, Sane; Aguero

Subs: Ederson, Kompany, Gundogan, Otamendi, Jesus, Diaz, Gomes
