How Chelsea could line up against Bayern Munich

Ahead of Tuesday's Champions League clash between Chelsea and Bayern Munich, Sports Mole looks at how Frank Lampard's side could line up at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea head into the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie with Bayern Munich having ended their wait for a win in the Premier League.

The Blues had gone four games without success in England's top flight before deservedly claiming a 2-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday afternoon.

However, as well as a three-day turnaround, Frank Lampard is also having to contend with a number of fitness issues ahead of Tuesday's fixture.

Here, Sports Mole predicts how the West Londoners could line up against the German giants at Stamford Bridge.



Out: Christian Pulisic (adductor), N'Golo Kante (adductor)
Doubtful: Callum Hudson-Odoi (hamstring)

While Olivier Giroud impressed at the weekend, the Frenchman could lose his place in the team to Tammy Abraham, who successfully came through 20 minutes after an ankle injury.

Like Giroud, Ross Barkley made a positive impact on his return to the starting lineup, but the playmaker is expected to be replaced by Willian.

Despite having had to dig deep against their city rivals, the rest of the team may remain the same, providing that Cesar Azpilicueta has fully recovered from the knock sustained from a controversial challenge from Giovani Lo Celso.

Lampard has the option of reverting to a back four, although the Englishman has opted against changes of strategy after positive performances in the past.

Willy Caballero will also remain in the team for the fourth successive match, keeping previous regular Kepa Arrizabalaga among the replacements.

Callum Hudson-Odoi is pushing for a recall to the squad after a hamstring injury, but Christian Pulisic and N'Golo Kante are expected to stay sidelined.
