First news from the team
Chelsea will likely have a near-fit squad to choose from tonight, with only long-term absentee Ben Chilwell (knee) being sidelined for good.
Reece James has returned from his last loss on the bench against Brentford, while Christian Pulisic is expected to be in contention after missing the weekend due to jet lag on his return from US duty.
Callum Hudson-Odoi, however, could stay with Achilles and back problems.
