Edouard Mendy will continue his place at goal area for today’s clash. The Senegal international has been phenomenal since his move to Stamford Bridge and doesn’t seem to slow down either after winning the UEFA Best Goalkeeper last season.
Blues captain Cesar Azpilicueta didn’t play against Aston Villa and wasn’t great against Zenit either, but he remedied his display with a perfect assist to Romelu Lukaku’s goal on Tuesday night.Thiago Silva is in line to start ahead of Christensen as the Brazilian made some incredible blocks against Aston Villa last weekend, while Antonio Rudiger will also keep his place to make up the three center-backs.
Recce James is set to return at right wing-back position after serving his one-match ban since the game against Liverpool. N’Golo Kante is in good shape to play but will likely be on the bench as Tuchel wouldn’t rush him into the starting XI, so a midfield of Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic is expected.
