Just as we earlier revealed, Hakim Ziyech makes his first start for the Blues against Krasnodar.
The winger has featured off the bench three times since the international break, and has now been deemed fit enough to start his first Blues game. It is one of four changes Frank Lampard makes to the side, with the boss reverting to a 4-2-3-1 formation in Russia.
Check out the lineup below:
Chelsea (4-2-3-1): Mendy; Azpilicueta (c), Rudiger, Zouma, Chilwell; Kovacic, Jorginho; Ziyech, Havertz, Hudson-Odoi; Werner.
Subs: Caballero, Ziger, James, Tomori, Christensen, Emerson, Kante, Mount, Pulisic, Giroud, Abraham.
The referee is Ali Palabiyik from Turkey.
