Predicted Chelsea lineup (4-3-3) vs Sevilla

Chelsea are scheduled to face Sevilla on the road in tonight's Champions League clash.

The Blues are currently top of Group E ahead of Sevilla on goal difference.

A victory for either side would see them secure the first position on the head-to-head record.

Hence, Frank Lampard may not make wholesale changes despite the Blues having qualified for the last 16.

Formation: 4-3-3

Predicted Lineup:

Edouard Mendy is expected to retain his position in goal ahead of Kepa Arrizabalaga, who has been circumspect between the sticks this term.

In the defence, a couple of changes are predicted. Ben Chilwell could make way at left-back to be replaced by Cesar Azpilicueta.

Elsewhere, Thiago Silva could be rested. Antonio Rudiger is likely to accompany Kurt Zouma at the heart of the defence.

Reece James should continue in the right-back position. Meanwhile, in the centre of the park, there could be starts for Jorginho and Kai Havertz.

They could replace Mason Mount and Mateo Kovacic respectively. N'Golo Kante should accompany the duo and start in the holding midfield role.

In the attack, a couple of changes could be made with Tammy Abraham and Hakim Ziyech dropping to the bench.

Timo Werner should start upfront with Callum Hudson-Odoi and Christian Pulisic flanking him either side.

Predicted Chelsea lineup (4-3-3): Edouard Mendy; Reece James, Kurt Zouma, Antonio Rudiger, Cesar Azpilicueta; N'Golo Kante, Jorginho, Kai Havertz; Callum Hudson-Odoi, Timo Werner, Christian Pulisic
