Team News

Sevilla, goalkeeper Tomas Vaclik's recent return has coincided with the loss of Bono, who recently tested positive for coronavirus.

Karim Rekik has been filling in for the injured Sergio Escudero at left-back, while Suso is another who is carrying a knock.

Lopetegui has plenty of other options in attack, with the likes of Oliver Torres, Luuk de Jong, Lucas Ocampos, Oscar Rodriguez, Oussama Idrissi and Youssef En-Nesyri all available.

Sevilla possible starting lineup:
Vaclik; Navas, Kounde, Carlos, Rekik; Jordan, Gudelj, Rakitic; Torres, En-Nesyri, Ocampos

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is expected to field his strongest available side, which could mean an unchanged XI being named on the back of the Tottenham draw.

Christian Pulisic made his return from injury at the weekend and is in contention to start this one, however, while Kai Havertz is another who could do with some minutes.

Up top, Giroud will be disappointed if he is once again overlooked for a starting spot, but his inclusion may well depend on whether Timo Werner is part of the starting lineup.

Former RB Leipzig attacker Werner has been involved in nine goals in nine Champions League away games (eight goals, one assist).
Chelsea possible starting lineup:
Mendy; James, Zouma, Silva, Chilwell; Havertz, Kante, Mount; Ziyech, Werner, Pulisic

Prediction: Sevilla 1-1 Chelsea
