The Premier League’s top two clubs are in action tonight as Chelsea welcome NK Maribor and Manchester City travel to Moscow in the latest stage of the Champions League.


With Diego Costa injured, Chelsea could start with Didier Drogba up front as they face the Slovenian champions.

Man City meanwhile are still looking for their first win of this season’s Champions League campaign. They will be playing in front of an empty stadium in Moscow after CSKA were punished by Uefa for crowd offences.
