Juventus Team News
Meanwhile, Juventus is hoping to have Paulo Dybala available for the trip to London, and the diminutive striker remains hopeful of playing some part.
His fitness will be watched closely before the game, but Welsh midfielder Aaron Ramsey has been ruled out once again, and captain Giorgio Chiellini’s participation is once again in doubt owing to an Achilles injury.
Max Allegri is also concerned about Federico Bernardeschi, who was hurt while playing for Italy, but Moise Kean is available and might fill in for Dybala if he is unavailable. Federico Chiesa, who scored the winner in the reverse fixture, is a more likely possibility to partner Alvaro Morata in attack for the Bianconeri.
Chelsea Team News
Thomas Tuchel has been able to welcome back both Romelu Lukaku (ankle) and Timo Werner (thigh) to training after missing both of his primary strikers due to injuries sustained while on Champions League duty.
While Werner was an unused substitute against Leicester on Saturday and might possibly start, Lukaku is unlikely to play just now as he plans a gradual return to the first team.
Mateo Kovacic, a multiple champion in this league, has been out since sustaining a hamstring injury in training late last month, while winger Marcos Alonso has only recently recovered from an ankle injury. However, the latter could be engaged, pressing Chilwell for his position on the left.
Mason Mount missed England’s recent internationals due to dental surgery, but he made his Premier League debut and is anticipated to play alongside Kai Havertz or Werner up attack.
