Chelsea vs Zenit St. Petersburg – Team News

Chelsea face Zenit St Petersburg at Stamford Bridge in just under an hour, and the teams are in!

Edu Mendy starts in goal, despite the hints there might be a chance for Kepa between the sticks.

The rest of the back three is as expected – Azpi, Christensen and Rudiger, with Reece James returning from suspension on the right hand side and Marcos Alonso playing on the left.

It’s a little strange that Ben Chilwell wasn’t given a chance here – maybe he will be back for Spurs?

Then at the top of the pitch Romelu Lukaku keeps his place leading the line, with Hakim Ziyech and Mason Mount flanking him.

Saul drops out from the midfield, with Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic holding the middle of the pitch.

This is a strong side, and we should really see off Zenit easily.

Here are the full team line-ups for Chelsea vs Zenit (kick off at 20:00 pm GMT)
