The European champions will be going up against Zenit St Petersburg in their first group stage game of the 2021-22 UEFA Champions League campaign.
The blues won the UEFA champions league last season after a thrilling 1-0 victory over Manchester City. They would fancy their chances again, given they have kept the nucleus of their UCL-winning side and added Romelu Lukaku and Saul Niguez to their starting XI and bench, respectively.
Chelsea FC will be hoping to begin their campaign on a positive note, as such, we expect Thomas Tuchel to name a very strong starting XI.
Antonio Rudiger, Andraes Christiansen, Azpilicueta.
Marcos Alonso, Reece James.
Joginho Ngolo Kanté
Mason Mount, Kai Havertz, Rumelu Lukaku.
