Team News
Chelsea will again be without the services of Edouard Mendy for Tuesday's contest, meaning that Kepa Arrizabalaga could keep his spot between the sticks despite another poor showing against Southampton.

Billy Gilmour is also out with a knee problem, but the Blues have recently recovered both Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic, meaning that Lampard has plenty of options in the final third of the field.

Thiago Silva was rested against Southampton but should return for this match, while Reece James is also expected to be given the nod at right-back ahead of Cesar Azpilicueta.

Ziyech made his debut off the bench at the weekend, but the summer arrival is unlikely to be thrown straight into the XI here, which should see Mason Mount and Pulisic keep their spots, while N'Golo Kante could be rested ahead of the Manchester United clash with Mateo Kovacic coming in.
Chelsea possible starting lineup:
Kepa; James, Silva, Zouma, Chilwell; Kovacic, Jorginho; Mount, Havertz, Pulisic; Werner
Chelsea Champions League form: WDDWLL
Chelsea form (all competitions): LWDLWD

As for Sevilla, key centre-back Jules Kounde is out of the contest after recently testing positive for coronavirus, but the Spanish side are otherwise in good shape when it comes to injuries.

Lopetegui will make changes from the side that started against Granada on Saturday, with Luuk de Jong and Lucas Ocampos both expected to return in the final third of the field.

Marcos Acuna should also start at left-back, while the absence of Kounde is expected to see summer arrival Karim Rekik make his debut alongside Diego Carlos, although Sergi Gomez was given the nod at the weekend and is also in contention.

Sevilla possible starting lineup:
Bounou; Navas, Rekik, Carlos, Acuna; Rakitic, Fernando, Jordan; Ocampos, De Jong, Suso
Sevilla Champions League form: DDDWLD
Sevilla form (all competitions): LWWDL

Prediction: Chelsea 2-2 Sevilla
