Kurt Zouma is recalled to line-up alongside Andreas Christensen and Thiago Silva in the Chelsea defence while Reece James comes in on the right flank with Cesar Azpilicueta rested.
Mason Mount moves into midfield along with Billy Gilmour – who’s given a rare Premier League start – with N’Golo Kante and Jorginho rested for the Madrid game in midweek.
Hakim Ziyech and Kai Havertz are also recalled to start in the Chelsea attack and they support Timo Werner in the front three with the German international keeping his place in the starting eleven.
