European champions Chelsea take on Premier League champions Manchester City at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon.
Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy has previously warned the Blues of one of Manchester City’s biggest threat.
“I don’t think Riyad needs any introduction, he is one of the best African players and he has played at a very high level for several years,” Mendy told BBC Sport in May.
“He has also had a complicated journey and he really did not give up and he deserves everything that is happening to him.
“He will be one of his side’s biggest threats – one of Manchester City’s assets.”
