Ahead of our Champions League game against Europa League champions Sevilla, we have predicted Frank Lampard’s team for the game tonight.
Chelsea have already qualified for the knockout stage of the Champions League and Lampard admitted on Tuesday that he will rotate the team amid Chelsea’s busy schedule.
One player who should keep his place is Edouard Mendy in goal, but there could be some changes in the back four.
Cesar Azpilicueta is expected to start ahead of Reece James while Emerson Palmieri should start ahead of Ben Chilwell. Antonio Rudiger could also start ahead of Thiago Silva.
N’Golo Kante is expected to be rested which means a start for Jorginho. Mateo Kovacic and Kai Havertz should also start with Mason Mount getting a deserved rest.
Callum Hudson-Odoi should start after he was completely left out of the squad for the goalless draw against Tottenham Hotspur. Olivier Giroud and Christian Pulisic are expected to be the other forwards.
Predicted Chelsea team: Mendy; Azpilicueta, Zouma, Rudiger, Emerson; Havertz, Jorginho, Kovacic; Hudson-Odoi, Giroud, Pulisic.
