Chelsea welcome Leeds United to Stamford Bridge for today’s Premier League clash. The Blues will be aiming for their first victory in nearly seven weeks.
Kepa Arrizabalaga has been ever-present in goal for the Blues since the World Cup with Edouard Mendy out with a fractured finger. He is expected to start between the sticks.
Reece James (tight hamstring) and Thiago Silva (knee injury) are set to miss the game. Cesar Azpilicueta and Benoit Badiashile should come in their places. Kalidou Koulibaly and Ben Chilwell will form the rest of the defence.
In midfield, Enzo Fernandez is a nailed-on starter but he could have a new partner. Denis Zakaria could get the nod this time around, having made cameos off the bench lately.
Mykhaylo Mudryk should start after recent substitute appearances for Chelsea. He is likely to occupy the left wing with Raheem Sterling moving to the opposite flank.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang could lead the line ahead of Kai Havertz and David Fofana. With Mason Mount injured, Joao Felix looks set to start in the number 10 role.
Predicted Chelsea line-up (4-2-3-1): Arrizabalaga; Azpilicueta, Koulibaly, Badiashile, Chilwell; Fernandez, Zakaria; Sterling, Felix, Mudryk; Aubameyang.
