Chelsea team news

The team news for the home side is courtesy of Football London.

Wesley Fofana, Lesley Ugochukwu, Romeo Lavia and Enzo Fernandez are out for the season, so they will not feature in this match.

Speaking ahead of the match, Mauricio Pochettino ruled out two Chelsea defenders in Levi Colwill and Reece James, saying: "No, they [James and Colwill] are not available yet. They are close. They were doing partial training with the squad. They are close, but still not available."

There is more optimism for Raheem Sterling, Carney Chukwuemeka and Malo Gusto, who face a race against time to be fit for this match.
