Chelsea face off against Manchester City in the Champions League final in Lisbon tonight.
The Blues have beaten the Cityzens twice in as many months, but are still regarded underdogs.
They are aiming to win the elite European competition for the second time in their history.
Thomas Tuchel has persisted with James at centre-back over Azpilicueta, with the Englishman more equipped to tracking back when the opposition is on the counter-attack.
N’Golo Kante and Jorginho are expected to start in the central midfield roles. Kante has recovered from a hamstring injury, and he has the task of nullifying the threat of Kevin De Bruyne.
The German has notched up 12 goals and 15 assists this term, but he has been guilty of missing numerous scoring chances. Tuchel is still expected to trust him ahead of Olivier Giroud and Tammy Abraham.
