Surprise Chelsea youngsters first team inclusion points to three at the back again

It looks as though Chelsea defender Marc Guehi has been included in Chelsea’s Champions League squad to face Valencia this evening, according to reliable Chelsea Twitter account, Chelsea Youth.

Reporting on the Chelsea under 19s match against Valencia, Youth has revealed that Guehi has not been included in their squad, neither has Billy Gilmour.

The latter is still injured, but it looks like Guehi will be on the bench for the senior squad this evening at Stamford Bridge, to replace the injured Antonio Rudiger.

This surely points to the fact that Lampard will once again be using a three at the back formation, with Zouma coming in to replace Rudiger, and Guehi stepping up to the bench.

19-year old Guehi is highly rated at Chelsea and already captains the under 23 team. He is also now a regular feature in the England under 21s, having played 90 minutes in their last two matches.

He certainly has the quality to be able to step up tonight if called upon.
