Blues touch down in Russia

The Blues will seal top spot in Group H by matching Juventus’s result in the other game at home to Malmo, meaning a victory in Russia guarantees our progress to the last-16 as group winners.

Thomas Tuchel is without five regulars for the trip, including midfield duo Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic, the latter having tested positive for Covid-19 and subsequently facing a period of self-isolation.

Jorginho has been suffering from back pain and is also absent from the travelling party, along with Ben Chilwell, N’Golo Kante and Trevoh Chalobah.
