Argentine goalkeeper Willy Caballero is set to start, while Maurizio Sarri is expected to make as many as seven changes outfield with the Blues keeping one eye on Sunday’s EFL Cup final with Man City.
Pedro is struggling with a stomach ache and is set to be replaced by Callum Hudson-Odoi with the front-three set for a complete reshuffle.
Sarri is expected to rest Eden Hazard and Gonzalo Higuain, with Willian and Olivier Giroud joining Hudson-Odoi in attack. Mateo Kovacic is expected to keep his place in midfield, but both Jorginho and N’Golo Kante will be spared, with Ethan Ampadu and Ruben Loftus-Cheek coming in.
Chelsea (4-3-3): Caballero; Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Christensen, Emerson; Ampadu, Kovacic, Loftus-Cheek; Hudson-Odoi, Giroud, Willian
