Welcome to the weekend, and match number ten of the 2023-24 Premier League season! Chelsea come in unbeaten in four in all competitions, and looking for a rare home victory these days.
Can we get the weekend started off right?
Pochettino reverts to the back-four seen before the break, with Cucurella (or Disasi?) on the right (and both Gusto and half-fit James on the bench). Enzo misses out (presumably due the birth of his child the other day). Mudryk does, too, for some reason.
Both Enzo Fernandez & Mykhailo Mudryk have small injuries. Nothing to worry about. #CFC— Olivia Buzaglo (@OliviaBuzaglo) October 28, 2023
