Chelsea team news:

In contrast, Chelsea’s injury list has hit double figures again with Ben Chilwell, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Edouard Mendy, N’Golo Kante, Reece James, Armando Broja and Wesley Fofana all still out.

Christian Pulisic and Raheem Sterling are also sidelined with issues they picked up against Man City in the week but Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang should shake off a back issue to make the squad.

Thiago Silva, Cesar Azpilicueta, Marc Cucurella and Denis Zakaria are among those in line for returns to the first XI after being benched at The Etihad.

Joao Felix is rumoured to be starting this evening to make his Chelsea debut, while Mason Mount and Lewis Hall are both expected to start as well.
