With Ruben Loftus-Cheek set to make a surprise start and Mason Mount still out, this is how Chelsea could line up against Juventus.

THOMAS TUCHEL’S Chelsea team will travel to Juventus without a number of key players. Mason Mount and Christian Pulisic are both expected to miss the Blues’ second Champions League group game of the season. In their first match of the season, the West Londoners defeated Zenit St Petersburg 1-0 at Stamford Bridge. Despite the Serie A side’s turbulent start to the season, a trip to Juventus should prove a tougher test. Tuchel will be forced to make defensive changes after Reece James injured his ankle in Saturday’s 1-0 Premier League loss to Manchester City. Cesar Azpilicueta is expected to take his place at right-wing-back, with Thiago Silva resuming his defensive duties.

The Brazilian veteran will form a back-three with Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen.

With Ben Chilwell still out, Marcos Alonso is almost certain to continue on the left flank.
