Welcome to the start of the Second Lampard Age. This may be a very short age, so don’t blink; you might miss it!

Chelsea played a lot of 4-3-3 in the latter days of the First Lampard Age, and that’s probably what we’re seeing today as well, depending on how far up exactly Gallagher plays. No Mason Mount, N’Golo Kanté, or Ben Chilwell in the squad — hopefully all just being saved for Real Madrid. (UPDATE: Mount re-injury setback.)

Diego Costa starts for the home side.
