Chelsea will lock horns with Juventus at the Allianz Stadium on Wednesday night as they try to pick up a positive result on the road in the UEFA Champions League. The Blues suffered a poor 1-0 defeat at the hands of Manchester City last weekend which has dampened their mood ahead of this European clash.

Thomas Tuchel will probably stick with his favoured 3-4-2-1 formation and is expected to make a few changes to his team for this game. Thiago Silva, Saul Niguez and Kai Havertz could all play from the start as Tuchel looks to freshen up his options for this crucial showdown at Turin.

Defence

Edouard Mendy will assume his duties in goal for the Blues after failing to keep a clean sheet against the reigning Premier League champions last weekend. Tuchel could opt for a back three of Antonio Rudiger, Thiago Silva and Andreas Christensen as they all try to keep the Juve attackers in check during the 90 minutes.

Trevoh Chalobah will have to settle for a place on the bench as he offers cover for the defensive spots.

Midfield

Saul Niguez and Jorginho could get the nod to anchor the midfield for Chelsea. Tuchel will ask both of them to keep possession ticking at the centre of the park and set up some decent chances for the front players to find the back of the net.

Marcos Alonso will hope to produce another productive display down the left flank while Cesar Azpilicueta works his socks off on the other side as the right wing-back. The Blues are sweating on the fitness of Mason Mount who missed the game against Man City because of a knock. Tuchel could choose not to risk him from the start and might rely on both Timo Werner and Kai Havertz to do a good job as his free-flowing attacking midfielders in the Juventus half.

N’Golo Kante and Mateo Kovacic will make up the numbers on the bench as they wait for their opportunity to make an impact in the second 45 minutes if required.

Attack

Romelu Lukaku will once again spearhead Tuchel’s attack up top. The Belgian striker will be eager to return to his goal-scoring ways after a lacklustre display versus Man City last weekend.
