Chelsea travel to Spain to take on Sevilla knowing a win will guarantee they finish top in Group E. 

Frank Lampard’s side have already sealed qualification to the last-16 having picked up 10 points from four matches.

However, he will want to rack up a fourth victory in five to ensure a potentially easier tie in the knockout stage.

In the reverse fixture these top-two sides played out a 0-0 draw at Stamford Bridge but both have gone on to win their three European matches since.

With qualification in the bag and Leeds United to come at the weekend, Chelsea, who are unbeaten in 11 matches in all competitions, are expected to rotate their squad for this one.

So which players will Lampard pick to try and secure tops-pot in the group?

Here we predict the Chelsea’s starting XI to take on Sevilla at Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan…


Despite the fact Chelsea re already through, Lampard is expected to stick with summer signing Edouard Mendy in goal over record-buy Kepa Arrizabalaga. Mendy has been impressive since arriving from Rennes and has kept eight clean sheets for the Blues already. Three of those shutouts have come in the Champions League and the Senegalese stopper will be aiming to make it four in Spain.
