Chelsea picked up the much needed three points last time out against West Ham United. There were some controversies involved but the Blues came out on top. And now focus has shifted to the Champions League.

The west London club are in Group E this time and will play against Dinamo Zagreb, AC Milan and RB Salzburg, with the first game being against Zagreb. And Tuchel could see some of his first-team players miss out.

Edouard Mendy could miss the game after picking up an injury against the Hammers. He was caught in the ribs by Jarrod Bowen and could be injury doubt for the game. It is too early to say when he will return if he is out.

New signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang saw the last game from the stands. It was reported that the player had travelled to Milan to get a protective mask fitted. He is expected to be on the bench, but whether he plays or not remains to be seen.

N’Golo Kante is still recovering from a hamstring injury and is likely to miss the game against Dinamo Zagreb. It is still unknown when the French midfielder will return. Denis Zakaria, who arrived on loan from Juventus has still not gotten his work permit and is likely to miss the game.
