Chelsea vs Sevilla preview, team news, kick-off

Team news and stats ahead of Chelsea vs Sevilla in their opening Champions League group stage game on Tuesday; kick-off 8pm.

Team news

Edouard Mendy is expected to miss Chelsea's Champions League clash with Sevilla. The Senegal goalkeeper missed Saturday's 3-3 Premier League draw with Southampton due to a thigh complaint.

The out-of-form Kepa Arrizabalaga endured another difficult afternoon against the Saints, but could still start ahead of Willy Caballero. Brazil defender Thiago Silva could come back into the reckoning having missed the weekend draw due to tiredness following the international break.

Frank Lampard also confirmed midfielder Billy Gilmour is nearing a return to action as he stepped up his recovery from a knee operation.

Sevilla will be missing centre-back Jules Kounde after he recently tested positive for coronavirus, but the Europa League champions otherwise have a fully fit squad.
