Chelsea predicted XI vs Krasnodar: Frank Lampard’s possible starting line-up with Blues boss set to give fringe players a chance to impress

Defenders:

Club-captain Cesar Azpilicueta has lost his place to the in-form Reece James this season but looks set to make his fourth Champions League appearance of the season and captain the side in this one. On the other flank, Ben Chilwell could be given a breather with Emerson preferred over Marcos Alonso. At centre-back, first-choice duo Kurt Zouma and Thiago Silva are also set to be rested for the trip to Everton coming up, with Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen set to step in. Fikayo Tomori could also see some action for just the fourth time this season.
