Krasnodar vs Chelsea – Team News

Chelsea face Krasnodar in Russia in just under an hour, and the teams are in!

Frank Lampard had several important line-up questions to think about amidst a super busy run of games, and he’s made some big calls with his XI.

Timo Werner plays up front, which is perhaps surprising, along with the inclusion of Kai Havertz in midfield.

Mason Mount misses out for a second game in a row, perhaps surprisingly.

Antonio Rudiger comes in for his first start of the season at the back, lining up with Kurt Zouma in a back four, with Azpi shifting out to the right side and Ben Chilwell keeping his place on the left.

Callum Hudson-Odoi plays on the left, and Hakim Ziyech gets his first competitive start on the right wing. It should be an interesting game with these teams in play.

Here are the full team line-ups for Chelsea vs West Ham (kick off at 15:00 pm GMT)
