Both manager's will point to absences of key players should they lose this one, with Chelsea likely to be without Fabregas and Costa and City still missing Yaya Toure due to international duty.The hosts may well feel the effects of a gruelling 120 minutes of action in midweek in their legs but Pellegrini's men have looked far from their best since they first closed the points gap at the top of the table.Lose on Saturday and City will be 8 points adrift, handing Mourinho's men a significant advantage in the title race. This is perhaps a match in which both managers - Mourinho in particular - will be more concerned with avoiding defeat, so a draw may well be the most likely outcome between these two sides once again.
