Man City haven’t won at Chelsea since 1993 so can they get anything at Stamford Bridge this weekend? See the betting here.

Manchester City defender Wayne Bridge has made himself unavailable for England selection.

The 29-year-old has been in the spotlight over allegations that his former girlfriend had a relationship with Chelsea centre-half John Terry.

England coach Fabio Capello stripped Terry of the captaincy this month.

But the full-back has now announced in a statement released by his lawyers that he no longer wishes to be considered for selection.

The statement read: “I have thought long and hard about my position in the England football team in the light of the reporting and events over the last few weeks.

“It has always been an honour to play for England. However, after careful thought I believe my position in the squad is now untenable and potentially divisive.

“Sadly therefore I feel for the sake of the team and in order to avoid what will be inevitable distractions, I have decided not to put myself forward for selection.

“I have today informed the management of this decision. I wish the team all the very best in South Africa.”
