Chelsea are in Spain ahead of their crucial Champions League clash with Valencia this evening. 

Frank Lampard has recalled Reece James at right-back with Cesar Azpilicueta moving across to left-back meaning Emerson Palmeiri drops to the bench. Andreas Christensen is also given a recall alongside Kurt Zouma in defence with Fikayo Tomori making way.

Jorginho keeps his place in the deep lying playmaker role and the Italian is once again joined by N’Golo Kante and Mateo Kovacic in midfield so Mason Mount has to settle for a place among the substitutes this evening.

Chelsea have stuck with the same front three that started during the defeat to Manchester City at the weekend so Christian Pulisic and Willian once again support Tammy Abraham in attack.

Pedro, Olivier Giroud and Michy Batshuayi therefore have to settle for places on the bench against Valencia as Chelsea look for a win in Spain to secure their place in the last-16 of the Champions League.

Here are the confirmed line-ups:

Valencia

Cillessen, Jaume Costa, Garay, Gabriel, Gaya, Ferran Torres, Parejo, Wass, Soler, Rodrigo, Maxi Gomez

Subs: Domenech, Thierry Correia, Mangala, Gameiro, Manu Vallejo, Lee, Coquelin

Chelsea

Kepa; James, Christensen, Zouma, Azpilicueta; Kante, Jorginho, Kovacic; Willian, Abraham, Pulisic

Subs: Caballero, Pedro, Giroud, Mount, Batshuayi, Tomori, Emerson

    Valencia have big problems in Champions League, the Spain team can’t win Chelsea and they will meet Ajax on next match. This is the bad news if they are lost and will out the Champions League. I Hope they can beat Ajax
