Manchester City vs Chelsea is the highlight of the matchday 26 of the Premier League 2018/19. The meeting between two of the most successful clubs of England in recent years could not have come at a more crucial juncture than this.

While Pep Guardiola is keen on keeping his club's title hopes alive, Sarri is looking to seal a top-four spot for his club in his debut season.

This fixture will feature some of the best footballers in the world with the likes of Eden Hazard, Sergio Aguero, Raheem Sterling, Leroy Sane, and N'Golo Kante.

Well, we all know top quality players like Kevin De Bryune, Frank Lampard, and Goerge Weah have played for both the clubs.

This Sunday when the two teams meet at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester, it will be more than just a routine match for some of the players from both the clubs as they will be going up against their former teammates.

Let's take a look at the current players from both the teams who were teammates earlier.

The first set of players on our list is the former Athletic Bilbao pair of Kepa Arrizabalaga and Aymeric Laporte, both of whom made a move from Spain to England in 2018.

While the French defender joined City in the 2017/18 winter transfer window, Kepa became the most expensive goalkeeper in history when he signed up for the Blues last summer.

Both of the players started out from the Athletic B teams and made it into the main squad subsequently.

Laporte spent six seasons with the Basque club, winning Supercup de Espana in 2015 and has also won the Premier League title in his first season with Manchester City.

But Kepa, who is also 24-years old, is yet to win a major honor at the club level. It would be exciting to see how their encounter as rivals turns out.
