After 120 minutes of football ahead of Saturday’s penalty shootout defeat by Liverpool, Thomas Tuchel could seriously consider changing things up for the Blues, with an eye also on Watford’s visit in just three days.
And the Chelsea boss could be without four of his players for this competition, although he will be hoping for a possible return of Kai Havertz (hamstring) and Timo Werner, who missed out on Saturday’s FA Cup final defeat. Callum Hudson-Odoi (calf) and Ben Chilwell (knee) remain sidelined.

However, he is expected to be without injured trio Ricardo Pereira (hamstring), Wilfred Ndidi (knee) and Ryan Bertrand (knee) although Nampalys Mendy (illness) and Hamza Choudhury (bone) are currently looking to return are on the side.
