Chelsea squad for Champions League match in Krasnodar

A group of 22 players has landed in Russia this afternoon ahead of tomorrow’s second Group E game.

Kepa Arrizabalaga remains unavailable due to the shoulder problem that kept him out of the visit to Manchester United on Saturday, and Marcos Alonso completes the three-match suspension he collected for his red card against Bayern Munich last season. Thiago Silva has not travelled.

In Kepa’s absence, Academy goalkeeper Karlo Ziger is included so the squad for game against Krasnodar, in shirt number order, is:

Antonio Rudiger, Andreas Christensen, Jorginho, N’Golo Kante, Tammy Abraham, Christian Pulisic, Timo Werner, Willy Caballero, Fikayo Tomori, Kurt Zouma, Edouard Mendy, Mateo Kovacic, Olivier Giroud, Mason Mount, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Ben Chilwell, Hakim Ziyech, Reece James, Cesar Azpilicueta, Kai Havertz, Emerson Palmieri, Karlo Ziger.
