The Blues are ready to battle Toffees as official line up is rolled out
Just as expected, Christian Pulisic isn’t on the line up as Hakim Ziyech and Hudson-Odoi are also yet to make a return.
Olivier Giroud starts today while Mount, Kante and Kovacic starts from the midfield leaving Timo Werner and Kai Havertz at both flanks to provide support to Giroud who could become the only player to net in 7 successive starts since Mark Stein in 1994.
Chilwell starts, same as James and Kurt Zouma who has been impressive so far alongside Thiago Silva.
Edouard Mendy takes back his place from Kepa Arrizabalaga after being left out of Krasnodar’s 1-1 draw.
Youngster Tino Anjorin is in the squad but would be starting from the bench after Frank Lampard mentioned of his development.
Calvert Lewin leads Ancelotti’s attacking force as he is provided support from both wings by Iwobi and Richarlison.
James Rodriguez is also as expected not in the game tonight as Sigurdsson, Allan, Godfrey and Doucoure takes charge of the center.
