UCL Night; Chelsea full squad revealed for Real Madrid Champions League clash as two key stars miss out; Names.
Chelsea have lost lots of matches these days and it is looking more like a playground for loss whenever Chelsea plays but that notwithstanding, this is what Chelsea squad will look like against Real Madrid this night.
Although Chelsea, and indeed Lampard, have history when it comes to unlikely, unexpected and improbable comebacks in the competition, this would surely top the lot should they oversee a dramatic turnaround. Whereas Madrid and Carlo Ancelotti are serial winners in Europe, Chelsea haven’t won in their past five games.
Lampard himself has lost three out of three in caretaker charge with just one goal being scored. In the first leg his side were off the pace and were fortunate to escape with even a fighting chance of getting back into the tie. Here, they will have to do it without two of the starting defenders from the trip to Spain.
Goalkeepers: Kepa Arrizabalaga, Edouard Mendy, Marcus Bettinelli
Defenders: Thiago Silva, Trevoh Chalobah, Reece James, Cesar Azpilicueta, Marc Cucurella, Wesley Fofana.
Midfielders: Enzo Fernandez, N’Golo Kante, Mateo Kovacic, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Mason Mount, Denis Zakaria, Conor Gallagher.
Forwards: Christian Pulisic, Joao Felix, Mykhailo Mudryk, Raheem Sterling, Hakim Ziyech, Kai Havertz.
