Chelsea look to qualify for the knockout rounds by beating the worst team in the group. A win and we’re in. A draw and we’re close (and in if Roma beat Atléti later today). A loss and things could get complicated.

Chelsea starting lineup (3-4-3):

Substitutes from: Caballero, Cahill, Christensen, Sterling, Drinkwater, Bakayoko, Morata

Chelsea go back to the 3-4-3 and start the three smalls up top with Batshuayi absent through injury. David Luiz and Rüdiger rotate back in while young Dujon Sterling makes the bench.
