Man City will be with a fully-fit squad for the Champions League final – a manager's dream.
But Pep Guardiola has the tough task of choosing who to leave out of his first XI for his side's clash with Chelsea in Porto.
Joao Cancelo may not start for City and has found himself out of the side recently while Oleksandr Zinchenko could bag himself a starting place.
Phil Foden, Kevin de Bruyne, Riyad Marrez are all expected to start for City.
For Chelsea, their two big injury sweats were Edouard Mendy and N'Golo Kante, both who are not FIT and ready to face City.
The pair trained on Thursday and and will almost certainly start vs City, with Thiago Silva likely to start in a back three with Cesar Azpilicueta and Antonio Rudiger.
Mason Mount is certain to start, but Thomas Tuchel will have to decide on Kai Havaetz in a false 9 with Timo Werner, or Christian Pulisic.
Mateo Kovacic, meanwhile, will be hoping to displace Jorginho in midfield.
- Chelsea – 7/2
