Edouard Mendy is expected to be in between the stick as the back-three would require the services of Antonio Rudiger, Andreas Christensen, and Cesar Azpilicueta.

N'Golo Kante who produced a five-star performance in the win at Anfield will be given the thumbs up in midfield and either Jorginho or Matteo Kovacic would partner the Frenchman.

While Reece James who recently displaced Callum Hudson-Odoi on the right flanks could star and Ben Chilwell will be drafted to the left-wing ahead of Marcos Alonso.

Mason Mount who has been Chelsea's best player this season will retain his position in the front-three as Timo Werner and Olivier Giroud will complete the attacking line.

Thiago Silva and Tammy Abraham are still doubtful of the clash as both stars are yet to fully recover from their respective injuries.
