Chelsea will be looking to book their place in the Europa League final when they take on Eintracht Frankfurt at Stamford Bridge this evening.
Maurizio Sarri has named a strong side with Cesar Azpilicueta lining-up alongside David Luiz and Andreas Christensen while Emerson Palmeiri comes in for Marcos Alonso at left-back. Kepa keeps his place in goal with Willy Caballero having to settle for a place on the bench.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek starts in midfield in place of N’Golo Kante – who’s ruled out through injury – while Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic also start in the middle of the park meaning Ross Barkley has to settle for a place among the substitutes.
Eden Hazard starts in what could be his final appearance at Stamford Bridge while Willian and Olivier Giroud are preferred to Pedro and Gonzalo Higuain in attack.
Davide Zappacosta and Gary Cahill are named on the bench along with Caballero, Alonso, Barkley, Higuain and Pedro as Chelsea look to finish the job at home having drawn 1-1 in the first leg last week.
Here are the confirmed line-ups:
Kepa; Azpilicueta, Christensen, Luiz, Emerson; Kovacic, Jorginho, Loftus-Cheek; Willian, Giroud, Hazard.
Subs: Caballero, Alonso, Barkley, Higuain, Pedro, Zappacosta, Cahill
Trapp, Da Costa, Abraham, Hinteregger, Falette, Hasebe, Rode, Rebic, Gacinovic, Kostic, Jovic
Subs: Ronnow, N’Dicka, Fernandes, de Guzman, Haller, Chandler, Paciencia.
