Chelsea XI vs Bayern Munich: confirmed team news, starting lineup, last injuries tonight


Frank Lampard had to deal with a headache during the selection as Chelsea headed to Bayern Munich with a long list of injuries and suspension who sought to reverse a three-goal deficit in their League draw. champions.

The trio of players injured in the FA Cup final loss to Arsenal (Christian Pulisic, Cesar Azpilicueta and Pedro) are all unavailable, with Pulisic out for six weeks and doubt about the start of the new season.

Willian, who is set to join Arsenal but also had to miss the Cup final due to injury, is still out of shape with Callum Hudson-Odoi – once a prime target for Bayern forward to engage his future at Chelsea – likely to start in his place.

Antonio Rudiger, a close Hudson-Odoi mentor, said: “He wants this type of game and that’s why you play football and I think he will really want to prove a point. ”

Lampard at least has the boost from N’Golo Kante being fit and back in starting lineup at the Allianz Arena, although both Marcos Alonso and Jorginho are suspended.

Chelsea XI: Caballero; James, Christensen, Zouma, Emerson; Kante, Barkley, Kovacic; Mont, Abraham, Hudson-Odoi

Submarines: Kepa, Cumming, Rudiger, Giroud, Batshuayi, Tomori, Broja, Lawrence, Maatsen, Bate, Simeu
