The Blues face Brighton at Stamford Bridge in just under an hour, and the teams are in!

Frank Lampard’s first XI is pretty settled now, and it was really just a question of seeing who was fit from his settled first XI. The only question mark was at the back, where Andreas Christensen and Kurt Zouma had been battling to partner Fikayo Tomori.

Christensen picked up a knock in midweek against Valencia, but he recovers in time to play today.

One surprise choice is Ross Barkley instead of Mateo Kovacic in midfield, and the absence of N’Golo Kante, who is clearly not up to full power yet.

Mason Mount drops into the midfield 3, with Willian and Pedro flanking Tammy Abraham up front.

Here are the full team line-ups for Chelsea vs Brighton (kick off at 15:00 pm BST):
