London, Aug 13, 2015 (AFP) -Premier League champions Chelsea travel to Manchester City, last season's runners-up, on Sunday with manager Jose Mourinho embroiled in a growing row over accusations he has sidelined team doctor Eva Carneiro.

While Chelsea are dealing with that wave of criticism, title rivals Manchester City are eyeing a win and a five point lead over the defending champions.

City manager Manuel Pellegrini must decide whether to start with Sergio Aguero against the Blues.

The Argentine striker may not be in their starting side after the striker played just the final 27 minutes against the Baggies last week, following his return from international duty with Argentina.

"Whether I start or not remains to be seen," Aguero told City's website.

"I'm trying to get there and be in top condition, but arriving for pre-season later having taken part in the Copa America with Argentina means I need some additional time," added the forward, who scored 32 goals in 41 appearances for City last term.

"With the whole season in mind, what matters the most is that I get in top form and don't take any risks."

Manchester City host Chelsea at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

The match kicks off at 17:00.
