Confirmed Chelsea line-up vs Krasnodar – Billy Gilmour starts
Chelsea set to face Krasnodar at Stamford Bridge in just under an hour, and the teams are in!
Frank Lampard has a unique opportunity to ring the changes tonight with his team already qualified as group winners, and he hasn’t held back.
Kepa makes his first start in goal since October, and there are debuts in the Champions League for Tino Anjorin and Billy Gilmour.
Kai Havertz gets a start to continue his return to full fitness, and Emerson Palmieri maintains his lead over Marcos Alonso as reserve left back.
Tammy Abraham starts tonight, hoping to win his place back from Olivier Giroud, who scored 4 times in our European game last week to win the number one spot up front.
This is a dangerous Krasnodar team – but a strong Chelsea team too. Let’s finish this job off as we’ve started it.
Below are the full team line-ups for Chelsea vs Krasnodar (kick off at 20:00 pm GMT)
