Jorginho should make way for Kante after scoring a penalty against Everton while Kovacic will keep his place in the starting XI. Tuchel might use Reece James as the right wing-back or possibly make way for Callum Hudson-Odoi.

Marcos Alonso will be replaced by Ben Chilwell. Mason Mount has been one of the best players for Chelsea under Tuchel and will play alongside Werner. Kai Havertz’s performance against Everton should be enough for Tuchel to grant him another start. But if Havertz is not among the starting XI, Giroud will have to lead.
