Chelsea Team News
Antonio Rudiger is out again due to a back problem, while Thiago Silva is back after missing the game against Brentford due to his late return from international duty.
Silva, Andreas Christensen, and the young Malang Sarr, who shone in his debut Premier League outing on Saturday evening, might form a back three.
Lukaku and Timo Werner are poised to remain as the front two, with Mason Mount in an aggressive midfield role. Christian Pulisic is also ruled out with an ankle injury, while Hakim Ziyech is a doubt due to illness, so Lukaku and Timo Werner are set to remain as the front two.

Meanwhile, Billy Gilmour will miss Norwich’s match against his parent club, but the Chelsea loanee has been linked with a January return to Stamford Bridge.
The Canaries will hope to welcome back Przemyslaw Placheta (fitness), while Sam Byram and Christoph Zimmermann, as well as Todd Cantwell, will be absent for the time being.
Farke is unlikely to make any changes from the squad that held Brighton to a 0-0 draw last time out, with Pukki and Josh Sargent continuing their top-flight pairing.
